Hey Jim, I got the ’70 SS 454 yesterday.  It made the trip on the transporter just perfect.  It has been raining so I haven’t been able to get it out to drive yet, but hopefully tomorrow.  It is a beautiful car and some of my neighbors and friends can’t quit talking about it.  Thanks for your hospitality when I flew down to look at the car.  I am glad it was like you said and I think we both ended up pleased.  I definitely will refer you if any of my friends are looking for a classic car.  Thanks again.  JS, MA

Jim did an absolutely fabulous job from start to selling of my husbands car. He took, what was a very stressful situation for me, and made it very easy. He handled every detail as if he knew my husband personally. I highly recommend his services for selling your prized vehicles.(Sheryl, Birmingham, AL)

"I've known Jim Lowrey for almost 30 years and have always respected him as the most knowledgeable and experienced person I knew when it came to cars. Buying cars through Jim has made the process literally a breeze!  Even more important to me than his expertise is his honesty and integrity. I would recommend Jim to anyone wanting to buy or sell a car!"  MG, AL

I have been a hot rod guy since a kid. One car I have always wanted was a 1936 Chevrolet 5 Window Coupe that was ready to go. I found one that was close to my dream car on Classic Car Store’s website. All steel body built from the ground up as a Pro-Touring car and built right. Jim was very helpful, specific and told me the good and bad about the car. I decided to buy it, bought a one-way ticket from Oklahoma to Birmingham, AL. I hoped the car was what it was supposed to be. Jim picked me up at the Airport and took me to the Owner, an elderly gentleman in a small country town. The car was everything represented, much nicer than I expected. After getting the banking handled I made a road trip back home to Oklahoma stopping and seeing a couple of friends on the way back. Not one problem with the car. Overall it was an excellent experience, especially when you are buying a car from photos and getting information from someone you don’t know. If you want a straight shooter when buying a Classic Car, Jim is the man. Thank you, DF-OK

Description
1958 AC Aceca-Bristol with Matching Numbers
The very first AC Aceca fitted with a Bristol engine 122 BHP D2
First registered in summer of 1958, this AC Aceca-Bristol is fully matching numbers including its original engine, gearbox, and chassis. The car further benefits from known ownership history, having resided with the second owner from 1966 until 2005 before changing hands to the previous owner. The car was partially disassembled in 1967, and remained so until the culmination of an extensive, sympathetic, high-quality restoration effort in 2014. During restoration it was discovered that the engine had already been rebuilt by Bristol, and that the chassis had been modified to accept Jaguar Mk II wheelsthis charming quirk was deemed to have historical value and is the car's only notable deviation from standard specification. Now delivering a dyno-tuned 134 hp, the car was entered in 2015's AC Owners Club National Concours and promptly won first place within the Aceca Classsubsequent 2016, 2017, and 2018 wins cemented its lofty reputation among AC marque enthusiasts and lovers of fine vintage sports cars, worldwide.

As a hardtop version of the AC Ace, the fastback-styled Aceca Coupe debuted at the Earls Court Motor Show in 1954. The Aceca's hatchback body was constructed in hand-formed aluminum over a tubular steel framework, while the tubular chassis was more substantially built than the Ace's. The result was a well-engineered, light in weight and extremely pretty GT car in the best AC tradition. Very few alterations were made to the Ace and Aceca apart from a change of engine for 1956 when the more-powerful 2.0-liter Bristol six-cylinder engine became available. The combination of a fine-handling chassis and a power-to-weight ratio helped the Ace version to numerous successes in production sports car racing, arguably its finest achievement being a 1st-in-class and 7th overall finish at Le Mans in 1959.
