AC Ace up for Auction at Monterey
« on: May 27, 2022, 13:52:39 »
Just saw this Ace coming up for auction:

https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/mo22/monterey/lots/r0011-1955-ac-ace/1229162

Heavily modified, RHD, and the number they list (AE901680) of course doesn't make sense. Anyone recognize this car?

It appears to be the same car as in this older video. At the time it was at Classic Car Center of Fredericksburg VA.

The ID plate says AE 90.

A little further research, here's images and a write up from the restoration in the video: http://classiccarcenter.net/completedprojects/1955-ac-ace/

Too bad it's RHD otherwise I'd be all over it...
