Welcome to my auction for a Cobra lookalike.
The owner of this car unfortunately passed away and this is now being sold on behalf of the family.
I am advertising the car using various documentation that is supplied with the car. and as such the description may be slightly inaccurate. I would advise any prospective purchaser to please come and have a good look around the car. it can be started and driven and any inspection is gladly welcomed.
The following is taken directly from paperwork that is supplied -
Sheldon Hurst AC Cobra replicaRover V8 engine enlarged to 4. 00ccHolley 390 carburetorHomemade exhaust manifoldsCustom chrome sidepipesNew camshaft + followers + rocker shafts + piston rings Rebuilt headsRover 5 speed gearboxJaguar XJ6 rear axle with spax adjustable shocksCortina Mk4 front suspension with spax adjustable shocksCortina wiring loomBrasscraft windscreen surround. sunvisors and wind deflectorsMotolita steering wheelTriumph Spitfire steering columnSkoda pedal box. brake and clutch cylinder ( yes. Skoda !!! )Remote Hillman brake servoMini heater box3 point harnesses
I'm not sure of the make of the very "blinged" wheels but they are wrapped in brand new tyres all round.
There is quite a lot of paperwork including a number of previous MOT's and lots of bills.  
The car has been in a garage for 3 years and is NOT Mot'd or taxed.
It should be noted that the car is registered as a 1968 Rover and as such is eligible for free tax.
The car starts and drives and the engine sounds fabulous.      The car has some damage at the bottom of the rear passenger wheel arch ( see photo ) and a few knocks and scratches.  
As can be seen. there is a hood with the car which was fitted for the photos but was not tightened. so looks a bit scruffy.
That is about all I can think of to include in this description. if anybody has any questions please contact me and I will do my best to answer any questions. Viewing is certainly possible and is recommended ( the car is in South Croydon ).  
Cash on collection is required please ( delivery can be arranged. please contact before the end of the auction to arrange ).
I am not interested in any part exchanges thank you.
Thanks for looking. Phil
