Westrand Car Show - AC Cobra - Boss 302
AC Cobra – Boss 302

This beautifully turned out example of how an AC Cobra should look w8ill be on display at the 2019 WestRand Car Show on Saturday 31 August.

Owned by Gordon Chapman the car is fiited with the small block Ford Boss 302 engine which is a V8 4.9 monster lurking in a small sized block.

Food and Drink

The Boss 302 has a higher nickel content than it’s predecessor and I imagine that is to increase durability in this high potential revolution motor. What I really like about this car is the reverse striping of the famous Ford GT colours.

AC Cars – the manufacturers of the Cobra were also involved in producing cars for disabled people and a micro car. There’s more on that in these posts – at Invalid Cars and AC Petite

There’s also a lot more about the history of AC Cars in these two posts – AC Cars 1903 – 1955 and AC Cars 1956 – 2012
