For many, the dreams of owning an original AC Cobra evaporated forty years ago, as values of the remaining examples accelerated almost as fast as the cars themselves. Never had there been a better opportunity for the manufacture of replica products and numerous entrepreneurial companies stepped up to the plate. A plethora of Cobra copies have been produced over the years, of infinitely varying quality (and safety!) depending on the budget and skills of the home builder. Southern Roadcraft enjoy a reputation amongst owners for the quality of their product and we are delighted to offer this example which has been in the same family ownership since its construction in 1989.
Based on a 1974 donor vehicle it is fitted with a Rover 3.5 litre V8 engine driving through a five-speed manual gearbox. The car rides on Compomotive alloys and has been enjoyed for general outings and to take the vendor’s son to school. An exciting motor car offered at a sensible estimate level, it is said to present “extremely well” and be in “very good” order all round. Accompanied by a Swansea V5 document and current MoT expiring 21 July 2021.
