THE CLAS­SIC AC CO­BRA

Evo - - MARKET -

The BRA 289 was the first 289 AC Co­bra Replica to be pro­duced in the UK. Over 260 cars were man­u­fac­tured be­tween 1981 and 1998 when pro­duc­tion ceased.

The BRA body was de­signed us­ing mould­ings taken di­rectly from an orig­i­nal Co­bra 289. One of BRA’S first cus­tomers to com­mis­sion a car was Gerry Hawkridge, who later went on to join the com­pany at man­age­ment level. When BRA ceased pro­duc­tion and trad­ing Mr Hawkridge went on to form Hawk us­ing the re­mains of the BRA Fa­cil­ity. Hawk repli­cas are still in pro­duc­tion to­day.

Our BRA Co­bra replica was built in the early 1980’s and re­tains the orig­i­nal 1967 reg­is­tra­tion from the MGB V8 donor car. To help pre­serve and en­sure trou­ble free en­joy­able ownership, upon ar­rival at our fa­cil­ity we car­ried out an ex­ten­sive re-com­mis­sion­ing. Our spe­cial­ist clas­sic mar­que tech­ni­cians re­moved the engine, and drive train. The chas­sis and un­der­side has been in­spected and un­der­sealed. In our engine room the Rover V8 was stripped and re­built us­ing new gen­uine com­po­nents where nec­es­sary. All sus­pen­sion com­po­nents have been re­newed or re­built and re­assem­bled. Our BRA Co­bra now presents with­out fault both me­chan­i­cally and aes­thet­i­cally. Visit our web­site where you will find more de­tails on this car among other collectable clas­sics we have avail­able. You may also have a clas­sic car you feel de­serves the same treat­ment.
