Extensive Upgrades w/ Best Parts Money Can Buy

The current owner of this 1965 AC Cobra Replica Roadster informs us that it’s a black plate classic that’s been enjoyed across three different owners in its lifetime.  He informs us that it has never once been driven in rain or on dusty areas to keep it at incredibly high original standards, and it has always been stored under a cover indoors as well.  We have extensive build information on file with the original spec sheet and owner’s manual plus a large number of service receipts to show that it’s never missed a recommended service appointment or settled for inexpensive oil, brake pads, etc.  This awesome classic has been loved its entire life and treated in the proper manner.

Additionally, this 1965 AC Cobra Replica Roadster could practically pass for a brand new classic with flawless exterior paint, a beautiful unblemished body and a like-new interior.  Even the closest of inspections doesn’t show any scratches or paint chips that we can see, so this one is truly immaculate from bumper to bumper and ready to enjoy right away.  Most brand new builds could not match this one’s overall quality and curb appeal- that’s how nice it is in person.

We strongly encourage any and all buyers who are unable to view the vehicle in-person to perform a Pre-Purchase Inspection (by an independent party of their choosing) prior to the purchase. Given the age of many of our vehicles, it is extremely difficult to adequately describe all aspects of each vehicles condition in the limited space available and we have learned that these Pre-Purchase Inspections are helpful to all parties involved.

The information presented for this vehicle is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed as a basis of purchase. The Buyer should make a thorough, independent inspection and investigation of the vehicle prior to purchase.
