AC Aceca 1960
Vehicle descriptionThe right-hand drive AC Aceca originally in Mist Green (one of only six ever finished in that colour) with a green leather interior; a three-door and very sleek fastback, was previewed in 1954 becoming one of the very first hatchbacks along with the new 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4. Deliveries were delayed until January 1955, and eventually, only 151 AC-engined Acecas were built. Unlike the Ace, the Aceca had wood-framed doors, was slightly heavier at 1,840 lbs, and to reduce noise levels within the cabin, AC mounted all major components on rubber bushes. Performance was respectable, if not outstanding, but the combination of a fine-handling chassis, light weight, and classic good looks resulted in a desirable GT in the best AC tradition.
