1988 AC Cobra

Story and History

1988 AC Cobra MKIV - Only 12.000 miles & Many Special Upgrades

We are very proud to be able to offer this exceptional example for sale

She has terrific performance from her factory fitted AC Stage III engine upgrade producing 350BHP

A standard MKIV apart from this engine upgrade we were commissioned to rebuild her to 1960's MKIII specification 5 years ago and since she has done about 3.000 miles only - the total now is still only 12.000

Our works included stripping her to bare metal, then repainting her in black.

At the same time we stripped her interior and fitted a 1960's dash with period Smiths instrumentation. Wilton Carpets bound in black hide compliment her new black hide seats - we also fitted 4 point Luke harnesses, fire extinguisher, period steering wheel, gearlever and a starter button

Externally we made a LeMans type petrol filler whilst also preparing her for a roll hoop and bracing bar. She runs on 15" Halibrand with 3 eared spinners & raised letter Goodyear Eagles. There are wind wings / tinted sun visors / chromed sharks gills & a bonnet scoop

Exterior lighting was upgraded to correct period style / 1960's rear view mirrors were fitted and also tow hooks fitted front and rear

The engine bay was completely detailed with new rocker covers / air filter housing / inner wings painted black / new HT leads / Aeroquip Hosing / Alloy Header Tanks etc etc

Finally a racing style side exit exhaust system was hand fabricated

In all �50.000 was spent to bring her to this specification

She now performs incredibly and sounds astonishing whilst remaining perfectly usable, even in London's dense traffic
