This is a beautiful example of an AC Cobra replica, based on the iconic 5. 3 liter, Jaguar V12 engine and running gear - a stunning shell on a fearsome engine! If you want to have a car you are truly proud to own, then this is the one.

To further enhance the performance, the car is fitted with £3500 worth of 6 x twin choke downdraft Webber carburetors, producing knicker-wetting performance. This isn't a pretty shell thrown on a mediocre engine, it is a smooth running, high power legend which turns heads with its elegance, garners respect when the engine growls and puts a huge smile on your face when you put your foot down.

4 speed manual gearbox and Jaguar suspension so all the right bits in the right order.

Dark blue with twin stripes - right colour combo.

Quick release removable steering wheel with wooden trim and the cobra logo.

Recent new black interior with red Britax belts and fire extinguisher.

Boot re-trimmed n black carpet.

Correct 15" Hallibrands wheels.

Side pipes, wind wings, full splitable tonneau, hood frame and soft-top plus side curtains so as fully weather equipped as possible.

Free road tax due to the registration date.

Importantly this vehicle has a very large and comprehensive file relating to restoration, improvements and a vital inspection to allow it to registered on the V5C as a Dax Tojeiro 1974.

Faults - tiny crack on corner of windscreen and a few tiny stone chips.

Spare pare of tires.

Passed MOT in November, so a year to go till the next one.

A bit of history:

The AC Cobra was the brain child of the late Carroll Shelby and it remains one of the most iconic cars ever built. Shelby's crazy idea of ‘shoe-horning' that 7. 0 litre monster of an engine into a lightweight body and chassis was truly inspired. The Cobra was never produced in great numbers and not surprisingly a ‘Genuine' Cobra with matching numbers and correct history is a rare and expensive beast. However the concept was not a hard one for the ‘Replica' manufacturers to emulate.. take a powerful engine like the Ford small block V8, the Rover 3. 5 V8 or various Jaguar derivatives ... then build a near copy of the striking Cobra bodywork out of fibreglass or aluminium and they were well on the way to producing a similarly striking and exciting motor car but at a fraction of the price. So a thriving ‘Replica' industry emerged and ‘The Fake Snake' was born ... AC were not happy! One of the finest builders and designers of Cobra Replicas were Dax and John Tojeiro. Tojeiro became a director at Dax and brought with him a near perfect pedigree having had a hand in the design of the AC Ace which was of course the car that Shelby had developed as the AC Cobra. Dax, or DJ Sportscars International based in Harlow Essex, were amongst the first people to produce a ‘kit car' version of the Cobra. They led the way offering a quality product and a variety of engine options that all mated to the tried and tested Jaguar running gear including the gearbox and limited slip differentials. The car we have here today is an excellent example of a Dax Tojeiro Cobra. The original owners went down the Jaguar engined route and installed the 5. 3 Litre V12 unit. This was the engine that saw service through the 1970s and 1980s. It could be found in the 1971 E-Type and then, in various guises, right through to the 1981 Series II Daimler Double Six. It is a well proven powerful engine that suits the Dax Cobra right down to the ground. This is an excellent chance to acquire a well sorted, very rapid re-incarnation of one of the greatest sports cars ever built.. despite being a ‘replica' they remain as one of the great present day ‘driver's cars'... you will enjoy the journey!
