AC Weller Engine / Re: What car is this motor from?

Many thanks for that! I didn't know how to access the registers, but now I do. I see that the motor (and probably the gearbox and overdrive) are from the car you referred to. They are clearly later than my Aceca.

Have a look in the Ace register (Ac engined). Looks like it was taken from a Ace that had a 289 put in.
As a member you can access the registers.

AC Weller Engine / What car is this motor from?
« Last post by Vincent998 on January 27, 2020, 15:53:34 »
Hi:

I'm a newby, having just purchased an Aceca. With the car came a complete AC motor, transmission, and overdrive. The motor is apparently later than the car, and its serial number does not appear in the list of AC engined Acecas. The motor is CLB 2416 91 NT. Can anyone determine what vehicle it came from?

Thanks!

The other interesting thing is that the numbering is stamped on  wood.
I am happy to be corrected but this is the first time I have ever heard of AC doing this.
However the font looks period.
BE646 had also it's number stamped  into the wood (doors).

Yes, I understand and do agree that it's probably an AEX car - but the 52 is quite clear, wouldn't you agree? So if they are correct, it would have to have a VIN from 520 to 529. 526 and 527 have already been ruled out, leaving the remainder. If it's not 52X, then why are those numbers there? As has been pointed out, the cars were built by hand individually, so it seems unlikely that it's a door from a different car - and even if it is, that still means the door came from a 52X VIN.

I think its not clear its 526--the 6 is crossed out with an x in your photo  and pin punched 7-you would have to pull a lot more evidence from round the car that its 526. Its also LHD  so would be AEX not AE.
There is also blue paint under the red in the roof area which may be original and 526 was green.
Not trying to be problematic but if 526 is (According to others) in the UK ,RHD and undergoing restoration , what do you have?
Will be an interesting story no doubt.

Thanks for your reply! It could not - the numbers 526 are very clear. I've attached a photo of the numbers, which are near the upper hinge of the left hand door. The windshield of the car has the two lower corners sharply angled, which I believe means it's an earlier car. I don't know when (that is, by year and VIN) the windshield shape changed, perhaps someone in the club knows? That would at least put an upper boundary on the age, which would help.

This has been raised a few times I think, the registrar  holds a list I think (This should be complete and available to club members, not open to the public),  I would suggest submitting info on parts and sources to the registrar.

Jag parts also present, (Ford owned both) so quite likely?
