c.1984 Dax Cobra 427 Replica
Registration no. YPR 888N
Chassis no. 2T5487BW
This Cobra 427 replica was purchased in 1999 by the vendor who advises us that it has always been described in past auctions/sales as a Dax. The vehicle possesses many Dax features but does not have a manufacturer’s chassis plate, though we understand that this omission was not unknown in some cases. Produced by D J Sportscars, the Dax was one of the very first Cobra replicas to be made in the UK, appearing in 1979. A choice of ladder, square-tube or full spaceframe chassis was offered and the Dax could accommodate a wide variety of donor components and power units. This example embodies one of the most popular combinations, using Jaguar (XJ6L) running gear and a 3.5-litre Rover V8 engine and five-speed gearbox. During the past 1,000 miles the following items have been renewed: cooling unit/fan, suspension, brakes, fuel tank, alternator and tonneau cover. The vendor describes the vehicle as ‘honest’ and nice to drive, and reports that it has always been fully serviced by Cobra specialists. Finished in green with black interior, it is offered with sundry invoices, MoT to May 2005 and Swansea V5 registration document.
