The hugely charismatic DAX Cobra has remained the undisputed market leader for more than 25 years and has steadily established itself as a much sought after classic sports car in its own right. The car’s enduring popularity owes much to DAX’s policy of continual product improvement and painstaking attention to detail. For many years now, the clear customer favourite has been the small-block Chevrolet V8; perhaps due to its competitive price and wide choice of power outputs. But other popular engines include units from the Ford small block and all-aluminium Chevrolet LS ranges with Rover V8 and Jaguar units still proving highly popular with some people. It’s no exaggeration to say that these cars amaze all who go out in them; harnessing the power with consummate ease and providing levels of grip, composure and ride comfort that simply have to be experienced to be believed.
This stunning example of the Dax AC Cobra is finished in Moonrock Grey metallic with black centre stripes, 17” Halibrand chrome split rim alloy wheel with knock on polished spinners, a black leather interior and chromed interior and exterior trim and gauges. The build was carried out by Mike Broad from Magnum Engineering and we can only congratulate him on the quality and detail of his workmanship. The Cobra was built in 2005 using a Tojeiro body coupled to a hooped ladder chassis with back bone brace, a Jaguar Getrag gearbox and a disc-braked rear axle with Limited Slip Differential.
The Cobra is fitted with a small-block Chevrolet V8 motor breathing through a 5-4 Barrel Edelbrock carburettor and tubular exhaust manifold. With 350bhp on tap this is a powerful and exciting Cobra to drive. The engine build was completed by PD Sports cars, with new pistons, sleeves and all components replaced at a cost of £5,495.00. The interior was finished with black leather bucket seats, black carpets, a leather extended dash, door cards and boot area, willans four point harnesses.
Offered with a folder of paperwork alongside the original build receipts and invoices, this wonderful Cobra drives just as well as it looks.
