2004 Red AC 427

WILTSHIRE, United Kingdom



VIEWING HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Hello and welcome to the sale of this simply stunning AC Cobra recreation. This car was built by The Fiero Factory in 2004 and has been cherished by it's two owners, covering just 13000 careful miles. Being a factory built car it is not on a Q plate, and has an appropriate 1965 'C' suffix reg included with the sale. It has had no expense spared in it's upkeep. It has large documented history file. The bright red exterior is in truly excellent condition with barley a mark on it. The white stripes are painted on. All the trims and chrome are in perfect order. The staggered 16" Halibrand style alloys are in excellent condition and well shod with Avon tyres all round. The car comes with full wet weather gear including door tops, however this has remained unused in at least the last 7 years as the previous owner never took it out in the wet! The interior is in immaculate order, the vinyl is all neatly trimmed and the carpets are beautiful including the boot area. The alloy dashboard looks the part, with quality white dials, fire extinguisher and a very nice wood rimmed moto-lita steering wheel. NOW THE IMPORTANT BIT! Running gear is predominantly Ford Sierra, and sits well on adjustable coil over suspension. When the car came to me it was powered by a Ford V6 engine. I have now had the car completely and professionally overhauled over the last 12 months. Power is now delivered by a fully reconditioned Rover 3.5 V8 and LT77 gearbox. Supplied as a 'turn key crate engine' The engine and box have recently been totally rebuilt by renowned Rover V8 engine builder, Jim Robinson of JRV8 including a brand new Edlebrock 4 barrel carb. The engine has just been fitted and is still running in, it sounds incredible through twin chrome sidewinder exhausts, and is more than powerful enough to propel this very light car along very nicely indeed, giving a spirited driving experience you can actually relax and enjoy, without having to try and tame it like some of the other more powerful and expensive variants! The engine has been fitted professionally by my local performance engineers, along with a thorough overhaul of the suspension bushes and drivetrain, and a fresh MOT. Full spec is available on request and any inspection is welcome. The car starts, runs and drives very well with no apparent faults, the brakes are very responsive and with the relatively light motor it feels really balanced and light on it's feet. To sum up this is an immaculate, incredibly well built, fantastic looking Cobra, and I am sure the new owner will be very pleased. It will appeal to someone who want's all the looks and sounds without the drama, this car is 'on the button' and ready for fun!
