Aceca – new model



AC Ace, unveiled in the autumn of 1953, did not in fact, reach the production stage until later the following year by which time a number of modifications had been made. The headlamps were raised and positioned alongside a recessed, raked-back radiator grille, the alloy body was carried by a stronger tubular frame, cam steering replaced the rack and pinion variety and the suspension layout was revised slightly. Powered by a six-cylinder 1991 -cc engine which produced 76 bhp at 4500 rpm, it feature all independent suspension. A two-seater hard-top Coupé-the Aceca-was also added this year.
