Aaahhh! my eyes. :D
The engine i would assume is a Chevy as it appears that the dizzy is at the back (can't see a dizzy hole at the front)
God know what kit that is?
Obviously Ford based.

Easy repair with a Halfords fibreglass kit. No V5 as plate has been transferred? Should still have V5 unless insurance company destroyed it. Plate now on a red Dax.

What was it when built,any ideas?

Hmm, you could double its value by pouring a pint of petrol over it.......just before flicking a lit match at it!

Thats a one off if i ever did see one.... Seriously looks like something he bought on the scrap. Most likely was someone pride and joy once!!! Cobra replicas are as nice as the depth of your pockets!!!!!

That is a god awful looking thing. I know that people have different budgets etc but if you have to compromise that much it seems pointless trying to make it look like a Cobra.......... You can't polish a turd.

Actually Myth busters proved you can although only enough to go on this particular Ebay car. :mrgreen:

I prefer the account argument to "you can't polish a turd" which is no but you can roll it in glitter!

From the rear view shot it looks Ginetta "ish" G4???..... there was also a kit in the 80's with similar rear cant think of its name. Probably 2 decent cars,before they were chopped up messed about and put back together, should have labeled the bits better, I assume there is another although slightly different

There is a lovely saying that could have a bearing towards this....".never let a woman or a fool see an unfinished job.".....should have let the flames do the full job in this case!

It looks like a Pilgrim Hawthorn body with added on arches but if it is then it has also been modified for the Sierra suspension as i think they were Cortina based.
