1986 AC Cobra MKIV 'Short Nose'

AC MKIV Cobra


Date of First Registration: 10/04/1986

Chassis Number: AK1147

Mileage: 40000

The MKIV Cobra was manufactured by AC/Autokraft at Brooklands Motor Circuit.

This particular left hand drive example, was supplied new to Mr Fayer Bayzid during 1986 to the following specification taken from the AC Factory Build Ledger.

‘ Left Hand Drive, Black with Red Stripe body colour, Black Trim and Tonneau, Hood Scoop, Shortened Nose, Auto Transmission and oil cooler’

Following delivery of the vehicle it was exported to Portugal later that year. After a short term overseas it was repatriated by its second owner Mr Leslie Kitson in August of 1988.

Under Mr Kitson’s care the motorcar was dispatched to Autokraft for a manual gearbox conversion.

The paperwork indicates that the following mechanical upgrades had been installed over a 6 year period;

Detachable roll over bar ( included in sale, not mounted)

Harvey Bailey front/rear anti roll bars

Uprated front and rear coil springs

All round Koni adjustable shock absorbers front and rear

Aeroquip stainless steel brake lines

At this time Mr Kitson had a 302cu SVO lightweight engine built by Performance Unlimited of Dunnington, apparently to this specification.

Most of these works were carried out at 20,000 miles are documented in the comprehensive history file. The result of these works left the vehicle with 380 bhp and 370 ft/lbs of torque at the time of the build, and is suitable for use of lead free fuels.

The motorcar is lent a more period feel by its Moto-Lita Woodrim steering wheel and 15 inch alloy wheels with three eared knock offs and Le Mans fuel filler cap.
