Low, light, and simple with a big V8. Sounds good to us!

We may be struggling through winter at the moment, but come warm weather, something like this DAX Tojeiro Cobra replica will be just the ticket for a quick cruise through the hills.

Cobra replicas has to be the most hotly-contested market segment for owner-builders over the years, with no shortage of players having a crack here and particularly in the USA. DAX is recognised as one of the legit brands, having built up a pretty good reputation over some 40-odd years.

The company was established by Brian Johns, trading as DJ Sportscars. And the Tojeiro model name? That’s a tribute to John Tojeiro, who was involved in shaping the original AC Cobra.

Ford is usually the obvious engine choice, but there is a school of thought that much prefers small block Chevrolet engines as an alternative. That’s what this example has.

The Ed managed to slide into this one with no drama, so it lives up to the claim of fitting big folk.

This example has a pictorial build history and passed Australian compliance in 2009. It has been fully registered and comes with a Vic RWC.

In the snout you have a low-mile 5.7lt Chev with a five-speed manual transmission.

Instrumentation looks pretty comprehensive and it’s running Alpine sound.

It’s available for private sale at $81,000 via tradeuniquecars.com.au – view the classifieds listing here!
