Rightly regarded as one of the all-time great classic sports cars. the muscular. fire-breathing AC Cobra succeeded in capturing the hearts of enthusiasts like few of its contemporaries.

Only 1. 00-or-so Cobras of all types were built between 1962 and 1967 and to buy any one of them would cost a hefty six-figure (even seven-figure) sum today. For this reason. a worldwide cottage industry of replica-builders emerged to satisfy the continuing demand for the legendary Cobra at affordable cost. making it arguably the most popular 'kit car' of all time.

This Pilgrim Sumo Mk2 AC Cobra replica was built by the engineer owner in 2005/06 using a kit supplied by Pilgrim. over £16. 00 being spent on parts alone. Originally using Ford Granada running gear and a 2. 8-litre Granada V6 engine. it was upgraded in 2009 with a fully rebuilt 200bhp Rover 3. 5-litre V8 and LT77 five speed gearbox supplied by British American Engines of West Sussex at a cost of £3. 35 (invoice included). This included all new engine ancillaries. new Edelbrock 500cfm 4-barrel carb. new clutch kit etc. It also has the rare power steering option which is very rare on any cobras and they are very heavy without it.

Please remember this car really hasn't been used at all on British roads and has been dry stored these last 8 years so it hasn't seen our horrible British weather so it's in really good overall shape with no rust.

With just one registered keeper from build. the car remains in excellent order throughout and has covered less than 3. 00 miles since it was built and less than 1. 00 miles on the fresh V8 engine. Recently the car was rolling road tuned with dyno sheets showing that it is currently producing 195. 3bhp at 5. 37rpm and 200lb/ft at 4. 60rpm. Riding on Hallibrand-style alloys with Willans race harnesses in the snug cockpit. it certainly is a throughout bred AC Cobra.

 It comes with brand new wet weather gear including a complete hood with rear screen and quarter lights and zip/Press stud side door windows.

It comes with a various photos and invoices relating to the build and subsequent maintenance. the aforementioned dyno sheets. one old MOT which expired in January 2016 and a V5C which records the make as Cobra and the date of first registration as August 1983 (the donor Granada).

With an excellent power-to-weight ratio and a glorious V8 exhaust note from the side-exit pipes. this AC replica is just the sort of thing to blow those cobwebs away on a sunny Sunday morning.

It has just had a fresh 12 months' mot (With no advisories) and a brand new alternator just fitted.

The tyres are period correct Cooper Cobra with excellent tread and with large rear wheel offset to give the car the true muscle car look.

To sum up this car is in excellent shape and although it was built some 10 years + ago has hardly been used and is barely run in. It's ready to use and enjoy and will only climb in value as these AC Cobra replicas are flying up in value and are very usable. The bucket racing seats are a very snug fit and the Cobra was known for having quite a tight cabin so please be aware that anyone with much above average build may struggle to fit without some seat modification or possible replacement. Also just to confirm that this is a kit car and although it's been built to a very high standard they are not factory built and may have their quirky ways. This one has a tempramental fuel gauge that sometimes sticks which most kit car owners will tell you is path of the course with these cars as its essentially a road going race car which is all about. The look. The Noise and the speed all of which this car does brilliantly.
