AC Cobras are a thing of beauty and sometimes crossed with a little bit of beastliness and this is what we have here. The purest would say it needs to have a Ford Engine but if that purest had to drive this beast they may change their minds, but we will come back to this car later
Most people know that carol shelby got the body of the AC Cobra from AC Cars in the UK and that he approached Chevrolet for engines, and they turned him down and that how the relationship started with Ford and why purest would want one with a Ford engine. Saying that these cars were sold in South Africa at kit cars that could be brought and built at home or you could just get one complete from the SA Factories like kit car centre or Shamrock Cars, now they are being built backdraft and Shelby South Africa who can give you a genuine shelby numbered car. But this one isn’t from that stable.
Our Cobra’s real background is unknown but it’s a Shamrock Car is an awesome powerhouse motor from a Chevy. The 383 stroker puts out balls on power and torque. The only thing that is holding you back is your bravery as you shift through the 5spd manual box trying to hold traction as the nose points upwards and the bum squats down as the Jaguar suspension is put to work. Now you are heading in seconds past 100 km/h and trust look like a red flash as you fly past the other road uses.
This car has been well finished from the interior to the exterior and even has a soft roof that needs a little TLC but we know you are going to never used it
This car is for the lover of open top motoring and the sweet roar of an angry V8 that is looking to thrill you, So, if this is you we have the beast for you
Interesting trade-ins will be considered.
