This is a relisted item as the winning bidder from two weeks ago did not pay or communicate a reason for changing his mind. Unfortunately I have since learned that he has done the same thing to several other ebay sellers over the past few months, he has been blocked from bidding again.
This Cobra is a fully imported Left Hand Drive Unassembled Kit from Factory Five in Massachusetts, USA. It is a complete kit with all new components.
The Factory Five roadster is the Worlds best selling AC replica . It began in 1995 with a simple but revolutionary concept. Improve performance, reliability and safety, while reducing cost by using the latest CAD/CAM technology, state-of-the-art suspension parts, and using modern running gear.
This kit was imported approximately 5 years ago and was to be built primarily as a track car. I have had very little time to work on it over the past few years and approximately 30 of the estimated 300 hours of assembly has been completed.
This is my third kit car and second Cobra replica but it is now taking up space in my workshop and my interest in the building another Cobra replica has diminished.
Most of the the photos in this listing are for information only, they are of the actual Mk3 model but not all are of the actual car as it is still mostly in pieces in their original boxes.
I can assist and help to pack and ship anywhere in Australia at additional cost, ideally you will need a large Pantec truck or a 20 ft container.
Please First read ALL the details of the kit contents below and if you still have questions "contact seller" through ebay.
Kit also comes with a Used 5.7 Liter Gen II Chev V8 engine with wiring loom, ECU and engine accessories, removed from a US vehicle possibly a Pontiac with about 60,000 miles use. If you don't want it you can take $2000 off the asking price.
The only things you’ll will still need are the transmission, tail shaft, wheels, tires, and a paint job.
When I say everything, I mean it. Included are things like bonnet and boot hinges and a complete custom chassis wiring harness.
The best way to describe this kit is "Its A Big Boys Mechano Set" a Lot of Assembly will be required.

This Kit can be converted to Right Hand Drive and be road registered but it will need re-engineering of the front steering using modern Ford or Subaru Steering racks. Engineers certificates and modification plates relative to the state you want to register it in will also be required. Head lights and indicators may also need to be changed.
The RHD conversion, certification and registration can be time consuming and relatively expensive taking several months and costing between 3 and 5 thousand dollars.
