Arguably one of the best meetings ever in the history of the Muscle Car....The AC Ace and a Chicken Farmer!

The iconic Cobra was Carroll Shelby's baby, and was of course the highly successful cars became an instant legend!

Sold by us many years ago and used sparingly since, This simply stunning recreation of the famous wide body 1965 427 Cobra is an absolute credit to its builders, and being a Graeme Berry body it has the unmistakably aggressive authentic look, and a real presence on the road, with the quality of the build and attention to detail being magnificent, this example has clearly been treated with respect throughout its life, as after over twenty years on the road it still looks like a very recent build.

The body is a quality glass reproduction, and it is fitted over a custom fully boxed integrated space frame style assembly, which has been fitted out with a Jaguar XJS rear suspension assembly, and a GM front beam unit with rack and pinion steering, giving superior handling and ride quality, and also full four wheel independent suspension with four wheel power assisted disc brakes.

The body has clearly had a lot of preparation work carried out before having a really nice quality coat of Classic Vintage White with the trademark Bold Blue Runway stripes applied, which presents very well today, complemented further by lots intricate polished stainless trim, and highly polished alloy inner panels, everywhere you look there is more and more detail.

The running gear consists of a very healthy 429 ci Ford V8 7 Litre Big Block , and this impressive unit gets its enormous torque down to the pavement via a C6 Ridgeback 3 speed Ford automatic, and on into the Jaguar diff.

The engine has that unmistakable big block note with an amazing menacing idle, and the incredible music it makes is transferred from the headers out into the traditional style Side Pipes which snake along the sides of this impressive beast, and leave no doubt this thing means business.

The interior is all handmade, and is still in excellent condition, pride of place is a genuine Moto-Lita wheel, with a full complement of Smiths gauges residing in the padded dash, while a polished alloy roll bar, and comfortable traditional looking leather seating round the impressive package out, along with a magnificent set of highly polished AC Cobra Hallibrand style Knock off wheels , harking back to the days of the old Cobra Race cars.

You couldn't come close to building a replica Cobra to this standard today for anywhere near the price of this example, if fact it would probably be easily twice the amount now, so this Cobra in the condition it is presented in today makes a lot of sense for the money....

A well built well maintained example, one of the best we have had the pleasure of offering for sale.

Inspection will impress. a genuine buyer.
