In 1953 AC began production of the AC Ace. Soon afterwards, car dealer and racing driver Ken Rudd fitted his own competition Ace with a pre-war BMW-designed, Bristol-produced 135 bhp (101 kW) six-cylinder engine. This combination was put into production in 1957 as the AC Ace-Bristol. In this form, the car raced at Le Mans in 1957 and 1958.
GAZ fully adjustable GT dampers are now available for the historic AC Ace-Bristol to enable the damping bump and rebound rate to be adjusted to suit the conditions and driving style.
They have adjustable damping rates which can be altered by means of an easily accessible knob on the side of the units. GAZ can set the dampers up for general road use but they will also be suitable for occasional track slalom and sprint use, alternatively, they can even be set up for serious racing use if you so wish.
GAZ dampers feature a zinc plated body and protective plastic sleeve to keep them looking good and working well for long into the future. All units are individually tested before leaving the factory and are covered by a two year warranty. The GAZ GT dampers for AC Ace-Bristol retail from £66.64 each plus VAT (Rear: Part no. GT2 4482)
Overseas customers should contact their GAZ dealer for local prices.
