1953 AC Ace Prototype ‘TPL 792’ - the first ever AC Ace

'TPL 792' is the unique AC Ace Prototype, the beginning of the wonderful AC Ace story, and thus regarded as the beginning of the AC Cobra story. Starting life as the 1953 London Motor Show car, with subsequent ‘works’ race history all over the UK including Goodwood, Oulton Park, Brands Hatch, Silverstone and Prescott. 'TPL 729' is without doubt one of the most historically significant British cars in existence, and as a unique prototype is ideal for Mille Miglia, Goodwood Revival and the great international concours events.

'TPL 792' still carries it's original registration, original body and original chassis. There are also lovely scars from its period race history within the bodywork, including where louvres have been welded and modifications have been made to the chassis.

The car is currently fitted with the Ford engine that it finished its period race career with, and also comes with its original AC engine block.
