Exquisitely good-looking, hand made and quite reasonably fast, the AC Ace was launched in 1954 as a sports car of rare culture.
It was to evolve through many guises: Bristol and Ford six-cylinder engines were fitted to endow a stronger punch, an elegant fixed-head couple arrived in the shape of the Aceca, and Carroll Shelby's Ford V8 transplant created the awe inspiring Cobra.
Fifteen years after it's introduction, the Ace had metamorphosed into the fearsome Cobra 427, the fastest road car of its era. Yet in all this time a tiny number - just over 2000 - of Aces, Acecas and Cobras were built.
Drawing from factory records as well as the accumulated knowledge of respected owners and enthusiasts, this book provides the evidence of what constitutes an authentic Ace, Aceca and Cobra.
More than 160 high quality colour photographs show every inch of our ten carefully selected cars, most of which are in remarkably original condition. From early AC-engined Ace to Cobra 427, every permutation of specification is covered in detail.
The definitive originality guide to these sought-after sports cars, is indispensable for all owners, restorers, buyers and enthusiasts.
