Hello, private sale of a nice Ram Cobra. Ex-race car converted for road use including raising for road clearance.

Donor car 1960 Ford. Comes with Tax and MOT until August 2013.

Genuinely one of the fastest cobras in the world with the race records to prove it, 1 of only 4 similar special light racing frames designed by Adrian Reynard and manufactured by RAM the pinnacle of replica Cobras (RAM was personally approved by Carroll Shelby himself), it was then modified further to improve stiffness, a Cobras limitation on speed is not the enormous engine power but the chassis, the end result making this possibly the fastest Cobra on the planet being speed trapped at 196mph racing at Spa (which it won). The same car was also featured in an episode of 5th gear.

Details

Private sale, built circa 1990, extensive refurb in 2005, original 327 (5441cc) 1960s Small Block V8 Chevrolet, Adrian Reynard RAM Chassis, Holly System Fuel Injection, Edelbrock performance system, several Jag pieces, RAM fibreglass Body, period interior.

Reason for sale: Intended to be used and kept in the South of France but this did not materialise. Has since seen very little use. Must go soon as space is now lacking.

-Currently automatic (driven by a lady) but also comes with a manual gearbox which can be easily changed over present at Roger Klimcke Racing, Broxted, Essex. Clocks are in km. Left hand drive.

Low mileage since refurbishment around 650km, dry stored for the last 4-5 years, recently serviced and has been put back on the road and is an excellent runner.
