1994 AC Cobra 427 Replica

We are delighted to offer this outstanding motor car onto the market. This AC Cobra has incredible looks and as it drives by it can be mistaken for a genuine 1960's period car with its stunning, popular genuine AC Cobra non metallic Black paint finish, expensive registration mark and period style headlamps and rear lights. Whilst the Cobra was originally built in 1994, in 2015/2016 a staggering £19,500 spent taking the car to a truly superb standard. This example is a Dax with Jaguar running gear, Dax Cars were founded in 1968 and started out as a fibreglass moulding company before coming the first British company to make a kit based replica of the AC 427 Cobra. Dax have now been producing these stunning cars for over 30 years and have sold over 4000 kits. Over the years we have had several Dax Cobra's and they have all proven to be outstanding cars of very high quality but this has to be the finest we have owned.

The Cobra is now running in having had its Jaguar V12 5.3 engine totally stripped down and rebuilt at a cost of over £7,000. The block was polished, as was the crank and both cylinder heads recondtioned. The cam housing was checked, new guides, recut valve seats fitted and tappets set. A full new set of valve springs were fitted, a new set of inlet and exhaust valves fitted and the engine also treated to new piston rings and new bearings. New conrod nuts were fitted, a new heavy duty timing chain and timing dampers and timing chain tensioners.  A brand new five speed Getrag gearbox was fitted, along with a new AP clutch kit and flywheel. Further mechanical work included rebuilding the carburettors, new clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder, new reservoir, hoses, new tail shaft oil seal, rebuilt starter motor and new speedometer and rev counter. Having had the extensive programme of mechanical work, the Cobra was totally stripped down to the bare rolling shell and treated to a top class re-paint in Black. Wheels were also re-painted and the engine bay nicely detailed. The Cobra now presents superbly and has been finished to the highest of standards.
 
On the road our Cobra is brutally fast, responsive and offers an outstanding driving experience. The Cobra is the all round package with fantastic acceleration, sharp, efficient brakes and tight handling. The brand new five speed gearbox is perfect, the clutch brand new and the car just wants to be driven. Having the advantage of the five speed gearbox means this car is ideal for long distance touring and the Cobra even comes with full weather gear including side screens meaning it can be taken overseas for events and touring holidays. Now 22 years old, this Cobra has the external looks of a brand new car, but with its delightfully aged original Black leather upholstery, it has that nicely used aged feel that makes it feel like a true classic, and not a modern recent build with no character. 900 DJX is impressive in every respect and is not the typical Cobra replica; it is something quite special.
