-British Racing Green with Tan leather interior and Tan carpeting,
4,765 miles from new, Carbureted 302 cu. in. V8 engine
with5-speed-T5 transmission. One of the last of the carbureted Mk
IV's prior to the adaptation of fuel injection.
As with all AC MK IV's the body is all aluminum built on the
original AC Cobra bucks. This example is exceptional throughout and
previously in a collector ownership in Texas. Just recently, it has
been traded back to Autosport towards another automobile from our
During its previous ownership, this AC MK IV received a new carb,
high rise intake manifold, headers as well as a custom stainless
steel exhaust. In comparison to big block Cobras, the modified 302
allows for just the right amount of horsepower and drivability to
match. It is a joy to drive both around town and in anger.
Fairly recently, I enjoyed a 400 miles round trip to visit friends
in Pennsylvania. What a great ride on the open road, but what I
found far better was the way it meandered the two hours of stop and
go traffic. Spoken from experience, a 427 never have been as
tractable and would have most certainly been on the side of the
road overheating! Oh yes and the interior heat is nowhere near
temps a big block with create, the last time I was in this
situation with a real 427 Cobra and in 80-100 degree temps, the
soles of my shoes melted! The AC MK IV a wonderful middle ground
between the original 289's considered the best of the Cobra road
cars and its big brother the 427.
This AC comes complete with convertible top, full tonneau,
knock-off hammer and original jack. This is a proper aluminum AC
Cobra with a wonderful provenance and must be considered one of the
best of its kind.
