"When a Cobra 427 was tested at 180mph on the M1. the Minister
of Transport retaliated by slapping a 70mph speed limit on all
Britain's roads. " This (apocryphal) story is typical of the
folklore that surrounds one of the last production cars to be
designed. built and bought purely for the joy of driving. The GE
427 is a realistic replica of the 1960's classic; devastating
acceleration. grossly illegal top speed. leech-like road holding
and aggressive. head-turning body styling. But with the advantages
of modern engineering techniques and safety features. GE Ltd.
offered four engine and three gearbox options which were fully
rebuilt and guaranteed for 12 months. The ladder style chassis was
fully protected with two part acrylic paint and waxoyl. The front
and rear suspension and brakes were taken and modified from a donor
Jaguar which also supplied the identity and year of the car. Rack
and pinion steering and wheels are Halibrand replicas. As the GE
sales brochure states: 'Don't buy a GE 427 to impress your
mother-in-law. Don't buy one as a family runabout. Don't buy one to
take your bank manager to lunch. Buy one for the sheer
enjoyment. '

This GE 427 was built to the highest specification around 1991;
the engine is from a Ford Mustang. the small block V8 289cu. in.
which was overhauled and fitted with competition cam shafts. the
new Holley carburettor is mounted to Edelbrock inlet manifold and
the gearbox is a four speed Hirst Super Shift. all of which makes
this a 150mph car. The modified suspension and brakes which gives
this 427 its identity are from a 1964 Jaguar S-Type which also
means the car is tax exempt. The vendor purchased the car from the
first owner in the late 1990's and took the car to France where he
used it regularly to 'pop down to the shops'. He returned to live
in the UK in 2012 and found that storage was very limited - hence a
very reluctant sale. This excellent example is finished in dark
blue with bronze bonnet stripes and dark blue leather interior and
is supplied with a full tonneau cover and weather equipment. a V5C
registration document. an MoT test certificate which expires in
July 2014 and a file containing sales brochures. technical
information and invoices going back to 1991. This is a rare
opportunity to own a tribute to the iconic AC Cobra which will give
you the same sensation and exhilaration as the original car but at
a fraction of the cost.
