|Odometer reading||3,300 miles|

Founded 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 ease and providing levels of grip, composure and ride comfort that simply must 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 superb AC Cobra by Dax looks fabulous in blue with the eponymous white stripe running down the centre from the front to the rear and is complemented by its cream/blue interior. The car is fitted with a rebuilt 350ci Chevrolet engine including Edelbrock Performer heads and manifold mated to a five-speed Tremec gearbox and power lock diff, which sounds fantastic as well as producing superb performance to match. This exciting sportscar comes with full weather equipment – Tonneau, hood and side screens, alarm and tracker. The comprehensive history file contains old MoT test certificates, a cylinder block age certificate, British National Type Approval Certificate confirming it as a Dax Tojeiro, a copy of the Tojeiro assembly guide together with details and receipts of pretty much every component. This really is a head turner which drives and handles beautifully. Absolutely stunning!
