Sold new in Belgium in 1959, this AC Ace, powered by the desirable Bristol engine, was registered in January 1960. Originally green, the car was abandoned by its owner in 1972 in his company premises after it went bankrupt. A local mechanic, passionate about mechanicals, saved the car from destruction. At that time the car had a burgundy red color, eventually the he repainted it in a bright red color. For 40 years he took care of the car especially its routine maintenance, though he hardly used it as he had other vehicles. Even if the car was never completely restored, it has always been kept in good working condition. In 2015, this enthusiast passed away, which is the reason for the car to be sold. Today the car is very complete and in correct using condition, with the odometer displaying 78,200 km. A recent expert report shows that the car is sound, with traces of some old repairs of the body and a proper mechanical functioning. Inside, the beige leather seats are original in used condition and the car has no carpet. However, it is fitted with a rare hardtop, side-screens and a fire extinguisher in the engine compartment. According to the expert report, "it requires a serious service before hitting the road; moreover as it is complete, it is an excellent base for a restoration." This car has the charm of cars that have not been restored and displays the typical faults of aging. It is desirable that a future restoration does not completely erase these irreplaceable touches.
