Hi and welcome,
very reasonably priced i think.
Assuming it's correctly registered as a Dax?
There are buyers for automatics I'm sure.
Does it have the later Dax steering set up or the early Dolomite rack?
Also does have the backbone braced chassis? (not sure when that came in)?

Hi Kev
Thanks for your reply.
Yes it is registered as a DAX.
I think its got the earlier rack, I do know it has three UJs to get to the steering rack.
I also do not think it had the Backbone braced Chassis according to the build brochure.
It does have the braces from the diff running back down the chassis to the front.

Guys the only reason we are selling it is we have bought another Cobra but with a Manual gearbox.
We did look into having this one changed over to manual but I am unable to do the swap and the cost was too high by a garage.
The car really is sweet to drive a very reliable for someone who wants an automatic.

Cheers for now
