About the '56 Aceca Bristol

In line with the Ace, a Bristol engined version of the Aceca was added from 1956. Though markedly more expensive than the AC-engined car, it was a much better performer and outsold the lesser car, with 169 leaving the factory. As with all Acecas, you get details such as two rows of four louvres in the bonnet, burr walnut instrument surrounds and glovebox lid, and hinged rear side windows to aid ventilation. Though the car was directly related to the Ace, and had a similar nose and grille, no body panels are the same on both cars.
