Very interesting build. The hard top seems rare on these cars.

1966 Cobra Dax (Blue)

Photo of a 1966 Cobra Dax (Blue)

No longer owned


Right hand drive Cobra replica which I imported from the UK. It was in damp storage for at least 15 years and its condition showed it. The fellow I bought it from could not drive it any longer and offered it up for a very good price. I imported it as a non runner and will admit that jaguar 12cylinder with an old Borg Warner automatic was not the most inspiring combination for performance. Opening the hood though at a cruise sure attracted a lot of attention. It was one of those cars everybody loves, think it is powerful but a disappointment to the


Power was a V12 Jaguar engine with 6 carbs and an automatic transmission. The car ran like a freight train even though these engines were not noted for torque or power in a light car like this it flew.

Factory Options

Hardtop, 16 inch knock offs, Jaguar rear and front suspension, side pipes and roll bar. All the typical Cobra gear.


Other than ramming a V12 with a BW automatic it was a typical Cobra build.
