Almost the last of the (c.) 26 genuine, original 'Lightweights' (flat dash, no heater, original pattern 15" Halibrands with Avon high-profile tyres etc.) hand-built with all aluminium body by AC Cars Ltd. at Brooklands, Surrey.
This 10,500 miles from new example has had considerable sums spent on significant improvements to engine (factory blue-printed with c. 375 bhp gives 0 - 100 mph in under 10 secs. and 160+ mph), suspension and brakes, resulting in a Class Win at the Goodwood Sprint first time out.
It does, however, retain impeccable road manners, and with full weather equipment it is eminently suitable for international touring in all prevailing traffic conditions.
Presentation is to 'Show Standard' throughout, endorsed with an ACOC Concours Award.
Modified engine (375 bhp); modified suspension (front and rear anti-roll bars, lowered with comp. springs and altered geometry); AP competition brakes (retaining road pads); Aeroquipped; lower diff. ratio; MSD ignition; oil-cooler; alternative silencers for circuit use; modified pedal box; quick-lift jacks (original over-riders and 'neuf' bars go with the car); period headlights, rear view mirror and gear-lever; wind-wings and perspex sun-visors; driver's 4 point race-harness; body coloured wheel centres with 3-eared knock-off spinners.
Freshly serviced with new MOT, this is a very special AC Cobra indeed, and an absolute exhilarating delight to own and drive.
