Caroll Shelby scored a victory for Aston Martin at the grueling 24 Hours of LeMans in 1959. Soon after he was struck by heart problems and forced to retire from the driver's seat. This freed up time to pursue his other passion, building the world's fastest sports car. The car was named the Cobra. Special

John Tojeiro had designed and produced a small sports-car which he sold under the name of AC Ace. The cars had a tubular chassis and powered by Bristol 2-liter six-cylinder engines. With its lightweight body and good handling characteristics it was an ideal vehicle for racing. When Bristol announced they would no longer offer the engine, Shelby convinced him to continue production by outfitting the cars with Ford Fairlane engines. The engine produced almost twice as much power as the engine it was replacing and yet it weighed less. The rear end was modified to handle this increase in power.

This model was  found at a model swap meet. The car is in very good condition and the box has been restored (cellophane replaced).  This is a special find, I have not seen a white box in Australia in as good condition.

Bburago collectors will note the Open Mirror, Solid (closed) Hub Nuts.

All were in poor condition with a thick layer of dust and the boxes had been stored in a shed, most were water damaged and nearly all boxes had broken clear windows and fittings missing (the things that secure the model in the box for shipping). I offered to buy the Ferrari 300 P4 as I wanted one for my collection.The dust was so thick that you could not see through the windows and I knew the paint was not going to be in great condition but was an opportunity to test the GMP / Meguiar’s Model care kit.
