The AC marque is inextricably linked with the timelessly stylish
bodies utilised by Carroll Shelby and married with 260ci and 289ci
Ford small block engines to produce one of the most desirable and
capable sports cars in history. Light and nimble with brutish
American power under the hood. the Shelby Cobra was a fearsome
weapon both on the track and road.
In the 1970s. the AC factory at Thames Ditton stopped service and
repair of older Cobras. Brian Angliss' Cobra Parts operation
quickly picked up that business and built up a strong and
influential customer base. He also moved closer to the factory
operation over the years. eventually collecting enough original
tooling. jigs. and body bucks from Thames Ditton to fabricate new
aluminium bodies.
The quality of Angliss' work was so well-respected by owners and
others in the AC community. that in 1986 he was allowed to purchase
the rights to the AC name from the Hurlock family. who had been
strongly protective of the name. A new AC company was established
as a joint venture with Ford who had also recently bought Aston
Martin. Angliss' company then became Autokraft which began offering
the AC Mk. IV since the last production of the AC/Shelby Cobra had
ended with the Mk. III in 1967. Given his legal right to use the AC
name and. more importantly. the unbroken lineage of craftsmen. br/>tools. and materials employed in their production. these cars were
lauded for their high levels of build quality and their retention
of the original's spirit and are generally considered
'continuation' cars. Autokraft shortly thereafter moved to a
purpose-built factory in Brooklands and in total. approximately 480
Mk. IV Cobras were built.


This wonderful aluminium bodied Mk. IV. presented in Rosso
Corsa red with black leather interior. comes with a five litre
Ford engine and GT40 heads. T5 manual gearbox and upgraded
suspension with just 13. 70 recorded. The car comes with a tonneau. br/>immobiliser. wind deflectors and original Autokraft
Instruction/Service Book with well documented history and MoT test
certificate which expires November 2015. The wheels are also
correct period Halibrand items with centre spinners and shod with
new rubber. Supplied with the addition of a roll-hoop and
quick-release Motolita steering wheel to add to the overall
impression. the driving experience is. as you would expect. br/>exhilarating.

Interested parties should note that the correct Moto
Lita AC Cobra steering wheel is currently being
fitted.
