1987 Autokraft AC Cobra MK IV
These Autokraft AC Cobras are so well done that they are the standard by which other Cobras are judged. The engineering and original AC tooling and spare parts from the failed company were utilized. Autokraft cars were so well done that an agreement was made to purchase the AC name.
Autokraft AC cars used the MK IV name for their cars following the original numbering system of MK I, MK II, and MK III of the original cars. Since the MK IV is built with the original AC tooling, which included body jigs and dyes used to stamp out the Cobra body in aluminum, it is almost totally identical to the original MK III Cobra. These cars are extremely rare and are, of course, listed by serial number in the Shelby Cobra Registry. You will not find your normal Cobra Replica in the Shelby register at all. That fact alone adds tremendous credibility to these AC Autokraft Cars.
This particular Cobra has been fitted with the real knock-off wheels complete with the wire to hold the knock-off in place. I do not know how much this cost, but I am sure it was not cheap.
It has only traveled 10,800 miles since it was new, so it is still very much like a new car. Besides the 302 Cobra motor, it is equipped with a Tremec 5-speed transmission, disc brakes all around and a more than adequate cooling system that allows this brute to run nice and cool.
As you can see by the pictures, I have a great deal of extra brochures and booklets that go with the car. I also have the top and frame which I do not think have ever been fitted to the car. Also included are the tonneau cover, side curtains and a bag that has two spools of wire for the knock-offs. In addition, there is a third light required by our “good o’l “American government (which also has never been fitted to the car) and other odds and ends.
With the price of original Cobra’s going through the roof, this AC MK IV is a nice alternative to the very expensive, original MK I, MK II and MK III’s. This car is a BLAST to drive and of course is extremely FAST!!
