427 Cobra Replica

We have designed our 427 Cobra replica so that we can produce a car that is easy and inexpensive for the home builder to complete.

The chassis is built around two four inch steel tubes, like the original. Components for the rear suspension and braking systems are from locally produced VR VS Commodore, we have used the Commodore live rear axle with trailing arms and panhard for predictable handling, the front suspension uses upper and lower control arms and uprights from the Jaguar XJ6 series two or three.

Commodore front callipers are fitted to the Jaguar front suspension and the Commodore brake pedal, booster and master cylinder are used.

For ease of construction the body and floors can be completely removed from the chassis, this makes it extremely easy to build, the motor, gearbox, suspension, exhaust, fuel tank, fuel lines, and brake lines are all fitted to the chassis, then the floors, bulkheads and transmission tunnel are refitted then the body, doors, boot, and bonnet.
