Evaluation: Restored in the 2010s by Kevin Kay Restorations to the tune of over $400,000. Shown at Amelia Island, Hilton Head, and other concours events. Still every bit a show car and possibly the most immaculate non-Bristol Ace in existence.
Bottom Line: And at this price, it better be. This is beyond concours money even if it was a more powerful, more valuable Bristol-powered Ace. Given the money spent on this immaculate AC, though, it doesn’t seem so excessive. As many an auctioneer has said…you couldn’t restored it yourself for this price, folks.
