From Parts to Cobra!

My husband’s AC Roadster is finally ready! It’s been a long haul building this kit car, but it was well worth the wait. Besides he had tons of fun.

The parts arrived on November 2, 2010. Here’s the Cobra in boxes! The engine and transmission will be purchased separately at a later date.


The body still on the truck. It’s fiberglass and comes prefabbed from the factory. His Cobra is on the top. Red is not the final color. It will have to be painted after everything is assembled.

The body can finally be put on the frame! My sister gets her first test drive! There’s still work to be done (see, no headlights, no trim, no windshield or mirrors or roll bar!) and the Cobra needs a paint job.

It took two and a half years, but it kept him busy out in the garage. He probably could have finished it a lot faster if I didn’t keep a rein on the purse strings!
