This 289 story starts with a client of ours, who had been planning on building his dream aluminium Shelby Cobra and over the past three decades he had collected various parts.
Sadly the owner has passed, and forces the sale of this unique build.
The chassis was built as a LHD 289 mark two on the original tooling at the AC/Autokraft Brooklands Factory, all dimensions are applicable to the original cars,and could achieve FIA HTP papers making a unique car for historic racing, the only change required would be changing of engine mounts to conform as the owners intention was to fit another type of engine.In addition to this at its current build state it could easily be transferred from LHD to RHD.
This chassis specification is not to be confused with many inaccurate replicas seen in the current market.
The aluminium body panels included a variety of original period shelby bodywork and new build panels, further panels that are to be partially completed are right side door skin, boot skin.
We have listed all additional parts that are included from this sale and were purchased from various sources including AC Cars.
Various period light and body fittings (headlights,rearlights,badge,door latches)
Aluminium inner panels ( dashboard inner arches, floors and cabin back panel, trunk panels)
Replacement LHD foot boxes and boot floors from AC Cars.
Windscreen Frame will require fettling and a new screen
Hinges for the body panels (bonnet and door)
Differential 3.77 Ratio
Rear uprights from AC Cars
Shelby Valve Covers
Bell Housing with Clutch Fork
Manifold to Exhaust Branch Pipes x2
All parts have been fitted for cosmetic purposes, they will need to be fitted for purpose.
To confirm this vehicle is not a 1960’s period AC/Shelby Cobra and does not have a UK V5 or title.
No Warranty is given or implied in this sale, all parts are in a unwarranted condition.
We reserve the right to withdraw the vehicle from this lot, as its advertised elsewhere.
