Cobra Chassis

Classic car technician Julian has been building the chassis of our 1975 AC Cobra Replica. The front suspension has been painted and serviced and just the front coilovers and anti-roll bar are left to fit.

The differential is in place and the lower brackets have been fitted.

Mauro has also applied Raptor to the wheel arches.

Cobra Bits In Paint

Multiple components of our 1975 AC Cobra Replica have been in the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop with Chris as he has been painting them in dtm satin black, dtm gloss silver, and dtm clear.

Cobra Strip And Interior

Classic car technician Mauro has removed the gearbox and fuel line from our 1975 AC Cobra Project.

Brian has also been working on the interior of our Cobra. He has been making and working on the glovebox lid and the dashboard. Brian made good progress on the dashboard and was able to fit the dials and lights to the dash.

Lydia also made the cushion part of the seat base from tan leather.

A Change Of Plan

Work is well underway on our 1975 Cobra project. However, the plans have changed slightly as the owner of the car changed their mind about what colour they want their car finished in.

While, originally, our Cobra was going to be painted blue, its final colour will now be Candy Apple Red. Chris, from the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop, will now make a spray-out card and work will continue on the restoration of this incredible classic.

Mauro has also been looking at our Cobra as he has been removing the gearbox.

Cobra strip down and preparation

Mauro is continuing to strip down the Cobra project in preparation for the primer stage.

Whilst Terry is stripping down the front suspension and front brakes. He’s blasting off the dirt ready for paint.

Getting Ready For Competition

Our 2020 AK 427 has been in the care of classic car technician Jonn as he has begun his work to get it ready to be won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

During Jonn’s initial inspection, he noticed that the sump gasket was split and weeping. This was due to it being overtightened, so this was something Jonn resolved. The top hose was modified before a new J hose was modified and installed.

Another issue to be resolved is the alternator support bracket rubbing the water pump pulley. Chris from the paintshop also came through to the main workshop to check the paint colour ready for some paint repairs to be made.

Another Inspection Begins

Classic car technician Jonn has been inspecting and assessing our new arrival, our 2020 AK 427. As this will eventually be won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, he wanted to make sure it was on its way to being ready for its future new owner.

While inspecting the eye-catching car, Jonn tested the battery and found it to be working as it should. Monty stepped in to help Jonn out by making a new lower radiator hose which Jonn then fitted and secured in place.

The inspection of our 2020 AK 427 will continue with any other issues being rectified before it is won very soon.

Engine Out

After classic car technician Tom catalogued the components of our Cobra Project, he got to work removing the engine from this classic car.

Now that the engine is out, it will be refurbished before being returned to the car further along the restoration process.

As you can see from the photos below, it was quite a bit of work but, now that it’s done, things can progress for our Cobra project.

Cobra Test Run

We have recently started up our AC Cobra for its first test run.

Anytime a project like this gets started, it’s always an exciting time and our Cobra is no exception. Progress will be continued to be made until our AC Cobra is ready to leave the workshop and get back out onto the road.
