Evaluation: Visually maintained, largely original | One Swedish owner for half a century, represented as the original engine and leaf spring chassis. Stored for decades, repainted once from the original red and the engine block is freshly painted. The paint is shrinking everywhere but isn’t flaking off, yet, except in front of the left rear wheel arch. The upholstery is original, nicely burnished and sound. Cracked windshield. Solid, sound, showing 72,790 believable kilometers. The chassis is aged and fairly clean.
Bottom Line: An attractive original RHD AC Cobra and therefore quite rare (one of only an estimated 20 built), but not as glorious as the impression the presale publicity or catalog wanted to create, and this is a reasonable result for it.
