Founded in 1968, Dax Cars has become one of the market's more recognised producers of Cobra replica cars. The Dax Cobra has steadily established itself as a much sought after classic sports car in its own right. The car's enduring popularity owes much to Dax’s policy of continual product improvement and painstaking attention to detail. John Tojeiro, the original designer of the AC Ace chassis became a director of the company and the car was renamed the Dax Tojeiro.
This Dax Tojeiro looks impressive in dark blue with a grey leather interior and recently replaced carpeting. Powered by a Chevrolet 383 stroker engine and using a Tremex five speed gearbox with hydraulic clutch, we are told this muscle car performs well. The vendor states that the car has a gross weight of just 1100kg and produces approximately 500 horsepower. The car's authentic look is enhanced with a cherished number plate which is included in the sale. Offered to auction with a V5C registration certificate and an MoT valid until May 2019, this Dax Tojeiro is ready to be enjoyed straight away.
