    • Model(2 Litre)
    • FE Cat descProduced in Surrey between 1947 and 1956 and powered by the company’s tried and tested 1,991cc engine, 1,284 AC two litre, four-door saloons were built. The car featured an aluminium panelled body on a wooden frame which was fitted to a conventional steel chassis. The factory claimed a power output of 74bhp. In 1948 a two-door saloon costing £1,277 was tested by the Motor Magazine achieving a top speed of 80mph and could accelerate from 0-60mph in 19.9 seconds. This two-litre saloon was purchased as a project by the vendor in 2013. Unfortunately, a lack of time has prohibited the works being undertaken. Offered in green with a beige leather interior, this AC saloon has benefitted from dry storage by the current owner. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document and the original buff registration book, we are informed that this split screen AC runs. With so few still in existence and offered without reserve, MPL 440 should prove to be a rewarding purchase for any next owner.

    • ModelCobra 427 S/C by Contemporary,USA
    • FE Cat descThe Contemporary Classic Motor Company was set up in 1978 by Peter Bayer in Mamaroneck, New York State, USA and his reproduction of the legendary Shelby Cobra 427 was regarded by many as the finest replica of the marque because of the accuracy of the bodywork, its round-tube chassis and the overall quality of the engineering and general construction. This 1996 427 S/C (Semi-Competition), Contemporary recreation was built to order for Liam Howlett of The Prodigy off the back of the bands biggest hit ‘Firestarter’. Powered by a genuine Shelby licensed 427c.i, V8 and running four twin-choke downdraft Weber carburettors in the GT40 configuration, this car conservatively puts out over 400hp with the potential to tune higher. Power is driven to the rear wheels through a four-speed ‘Toploader’ gearbox with correct Halibrand wheels and Goodridge Cobra tyres. Beautifully presented, this rare righthand drive car boasts all the original details such as correct anti-clockwise speedometer, windscreen, radiator fans and other trim fittings. Howlett reportedly wanted the ultimate Contemporary Cobra and the cost was a secondary consideration. The car as a result has fully adjustable suspension, stainless steel manifolds with S/C style side exit exhaust and rack and pinion steering, making this the definitive recreation S/C Cobra. The car comes supplied with a V5C registration document and MoT test certificate valid until September 2020. Its history file includes an extensive compilation of invoices from works done over the years as well as a full build sheet. It was also featured on the front cover of the UK Cobra Club’s Snake Torque magazine in February 1997. For the ultimate Cobra experience without the million pound price tag, look no further.

    • ModelCobra 427 by Dax
    • FE Cat descFounded in 1968, the Dax Cobra has steadily established itself as a much sought after classic sports car in its own right. John Tojeiro, the original designer of the AC Ace chassis became a director of the company and the car was renamed the Dax Tojeiro. The hugely charismatic Dax 427 has since remained the undisputed market leader for more than 25 years. The cars enduring popularity owes much to Dax's policy of continual product improvement and painstaking attention to detail. A philosophy that has clearly shaped every aspect of today's Dax 427. From its state of the art technical specification, top quality composite body and sumptuous leather interior to its deep-dished Halibrand style wheels, trademark stainless steel side pipe exhausts and low, wide, purposeful stance. 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. It's no exaggeration to say that the car amazes all that go out in it, harnessing the power of the V8 with consummate ease and providing levels of grip, composure and ride comfort that simply have to be experienced to be believed. Even Jonathon Palmer was heard to say, "Wow, that's just staggering!" when taking the new demonstrator for a few laps around Brands Hatch, great praise indeed from an ex-Formula One driver. This simply fantastic example is presented in the iconic Cobra blue with racing stripes. It is fitted with the only engine to be found in a Cobra, the Chevrolet 383c.i., 6.3 litre, V8 engine. Naturally this example sounds fantastic and will give you goosebumps. It was first registered on 1st August, 2014 and has since covered just over 5,000 miles with its single owner since completion. Contained within the history file is an MoT test certificate valid until July 2020 and a comprehensive collection of invoices relating to the cars build which includes many from Dax for what was clearly a no expense spared build philosophy. The present owner was meticulous in sourcing this car and making sure that it represents an original 427 Mk. III Cobra. The result is simply stunning and would put a smile on anyone's face.

    • ModelAC Buckland Tourer
    • FE Cat descThe AC Buckland is a true coachbuilt car. The AC factory supplied Buckland Bodyworks with a rolling chassis enabling the Royston based coachbuilder to fit its own five-seater open touring body. The coachwork comprises of an ash frame over which is fitted an aluminium body and ‘suicide’ doors. The relatively lightweight construction of this car enabled the six-cylinder, two litre engine to propel it to a top speed of between 80 and 90mph. It was this performance that encouraged owners to race the AC Buckland at circuits like Silverstone and Brands Hatch. It was the first of the AC cars to race at Goodwood when it ran there in 1953. AC is a British company with an impeccable pedigree with good examples of its cars fetching serious money in the classic car market. Registered in February of 1950, this attractive MoT test certificate exempt Buckland is offered to auction with a V5C registration document that shows, including the vendor, only three former owners. It is thought that no more than 82 of the Buckland Tourer were produced although records are sketchy as the original factory paperwork was lost in a fire. This handsome tourer presents well in cream and red and we are informed it is a joy to drive. A recent invoice from restoration specialists, Rees Bros shows a considerable amount of recommissioning taking place in 2017. 591 YYC is a stunning example of a classic that is ready to be enjoyed.
