The AC Cobra. also known as the Shelby Cobra in North America. br/>is an Anglo-American car that was produced during the 1960s. Like
many British specialist manufacturers. AC Cars had been using the
Bristol straight six-engine in its small-volume production
two-seater roadster. This had a hand-built body with a steel
tubular frame and aluminium body panels that were made using
English wheeling machines. Bristol decided. in 1961. to cease
production of its engine and instead to use Chrysler 5. 4 litre. V8
engines. Although untrue. it is commonly believed that AC was left
without a future source of power and that American ex-racing driver
Carroll Shelby saved the company from bankruptcy. In September
1961. Shelby contacted AC asking them if they would build him a car
modified to accept a V8 engine; AC agreed on the assumption a
suitable engine could be found. He first went to Chevrolet to see
if they would provide him with engines but not wanting to add
competition to the Corvette. they refused. Ford however. wanted a
car that could compete with the Corvette and they happened to have
a brand new small-block engine which could be used.

With genuine AC Cobra's achieving eye-watering figures. a number
of companies set about manufacturing replicas. This is a Southern
Roadcraft example and is finished to a very high standard. On
completion in 2003. the car was SVA inspected and subsequently
certified as being road legal. the V5 registration document has a
note of this. The car has been used regularly since and MoT'd
annually. the current MoT was issued on 22nd October 2014 with no
advisories. Our road test confirmed this to be a vehicle of high
quality with the vendor maintaining the vehicle on a 'no expense'
basis. The 5. 00cc. V8 engine sounds delightful and performed well
on our road test as did the gearbox. suspension and brakes. The
green coachwork is virtually unmarked as is the magnolia leather
trim. Fun. fast. stylish and more importantly. offered for sale
with a very tempting estimate.
