This AC Cobra Replica is a complete ground up build based on a DRB kit which was completed and first registered in 2006. The car was actually mostly built and engineered in house at DRB before being sent out to the current owner in Mount Isa to complete the final finishes.
The DRB fiberglass body is an accurate representation of the shape and dimensions of the original cars. The body is finished in Galaxy Blue metallic with Silver stripes. The side pipes down the side of the car are non-functional to be registration friendly. The pieces on the outside of the car are stainless steel rather than chrome for longevity. The car sits on a set of 17” Dragway Shelby style wheels with imitation tri-bar knock offs.
Inside the interior is neat and functional. The decision was made to go with a more modern look dash in order to allow room for the air conditioning which is a nice feature you rarely see in these cars. The gauges are VDO vintage look items and the centre console flows through between the two bucket seats. The interior is trimmed in leather and alcantara to a touch of luxury. There is also a Mercedes-Benz cloth style convertible top and tonneau cover with the car.
Under the bonnet is a late model fuel injected V8 engine from a 2001 Ford XR8 Falcon. The engine is paired to an automatic transmission from the same donor car. There is a new stainless radiator with twin thermos fans keeping things cool. The front and rear suspension are Jaguar independent items with limited slip differential, rack and pinion steering and Jaguar disc brakes front and rear. The car has been previously registered and engineered in QLD and has travelled approximately 4,500 kms since completion.
