AC Aceca Tyres

  • The 5.50 R 16 Michelin X was the original AC Aceca tyre, and is the tyre we recommend.
  • AC cars of this period fitted tube-type wheels and innertubes. All wire wheels require an innertube. The Michelin 16E is the perfect innertube for the AC Aceca.
  • 28psi in the front and 33psi in the rear are ideal tyre pressures for the AC Aceca.

      History of the AC Aceca

      The Aceca (pronounced "A-See-Ka"), introduced in 1954, was the grand touring coupé version of the AC Ace, with just 151 manufactured but several luxurious upgrades over the Ace. The Aceca was just the second automobile, following the 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4, to include a rear hatchback.

      The engine was the primary distinction between the Aceca and the Aceca-Bristol. The Aceca shared its 90 horsepower, 1,991 cc overhead camshaft AC engine with the lighter AC Ace, but the Aceca-Bristol utilised a 125 hp "D-Type" 2.0 L (1971 cc/120 in3) unit provided by Bristol Cars. The Aceca-Bristol could also be had with a milder "B-Type" Bristol engine producing 105 horsepower. In the United States, the Bristol standard added $1000 to the Aceca's $5,400 price tag. In the United Kingdom, the entry-level vehicle costs £1722; £48,364 in today's money (October 2021).
