AC Ace Bristol


AC Ace Bristol


  • We recommend the 5.50 R 16 Michelin X vintage tyre, as it was the original equipment tyre for the Ace Bristol, and it is the finest radial tyre in this size.
  • The innertube we suggest is the Michelin 16E innertube.
  • The ideal AC Ace Bristol tyre pressure is 28psi in the front and 33psi in the rear.

History of the AC Ace-Bristol

Built 1956-1962, the AC Ace-Bristol was AC's answer to complaints that the standard AC Ace was lacking in power. To achieve this they brought in Bristol's straight six-cylinder engine as well as their more robust gearbox. Bristol Cars' two-litre 120 horsepower straight-six with three downdraught carburettors and a fast four-speed transmission was available from 1956. With 0–60 mph in the nine second range, top speed increased to 116 mph.
