My Dax Cobra, currently in the process of being rebuilt, is for sale. Basically, I need the cash. If anyone here is interested, or knows someone that might be, then PM me and I'll be in touch.

A brief run-down:-

1985 (I think) Dax body/chassis, already painted. I have pretty much all the parts needed to build, as the cars has been dismantled for a refurb. Jaguar front and rear suspension, XJ12 2.88-1 LSD. I have all receipts for it.

The engine is pretty special, has been completed rebuilt, and not run since. Brief spec is-

Already mated up to it via a McLeod Street Strip clutch and hydraulic release bearing is a Richmond Gears Street 5-Speed, fully rebuilt with new synchro hubs. It has a 'Long' shifter.

I have all new Smiths instruments, a Mojave heater is fitted in the passenger footwell. Two leather seats, rollover bar and forward removable brace. Compomotive HB wheels. I have custom made headers and side pipes.

Picture prior to me ripping it all to pieces:

I'm looking for £10,000 for the lot, but might separate out the parts as long as it all goes.

Hi Childoggy
I know someone who's looking for a 'cobra project', ideally he wants a Ford engine, I'll get in touch with him tomorrow, and if he's interested will let you know.

Surely there's only one guy who would be interested in a Purple Cobra :-) (but let's not get into DAX vs AK eh!)
