Hello everybody !

I can imagine Covid-19 is not a good moments for all the members so, as we have a lot of time at home, let me try to be positive and present myself and my new toy.

I'm French but I'm currently living in Spain (close to Girona) and I'm UK cars and motorcycles lover: I've owned a MGb and also an Austin Healey 100/6 before switching to german cars (it was hard to maintain UK cars and bikes at the same time  ;D). I'm also a Norton lover (I've got 6 bikes) and I'm currently restoring a rusty (very rusty  :-\...) Triumph Tr4.
Just before the Covid situation I exchange one of my cars for a Cobra Mk4 Lighweight (AKL 1422). Unfortunately the car is still in the previus owner garage and when it will be allowed to drive I will bring it back home  :)
Ac Cobra have always been my dream car so a Lightweight was a good and afordable combination for me.
The car is in very good condition and I'm in contact with some  ACOC members in order to get documents to register the car in Spain.
I also want to know if there is some technical documentation for Mk4 cars like workshop, part list, driver manual, etc... All docs will be welcome  :) My knowlege in AC cars is poor so I hope to learn a lot with this forum.

Speak soon  :)

A 12hp tourer on holiday, Westward Ho. I'd say a 1921 model.

'On offer is a huge part of racing history! An original 1964 AC Cobra, 289 USRRC race car. This has been owned by my client for nearly « 40 » years. Authentic and ready! Raced at all of the amazing USA tracks as you would expect!...........'

This was sold as a road car in 1980 with 'chrome wires, front end damage, new body panels included' and then 427ised for vintage racing. As the USRRC only ran from 1963 to 1968, its exclamatory description would appear to miss the mark.

on the basis that I will still be causing trouble at the end of this virus thing can any one recommend where I can get a replacement windscreen for my Mk 1v. As I live in the west country anything this way would be helpful, But when allowed will of course travel as required. Regards Baz

Hello Gents,

Does anyone have a clear and legible wiring diagram of a Lucas CJR3 regulator and fuse box.
The copies available on the net are frankly shit and are indecipherable.
I am currently doing a complete rewire on my 16/66 and help in any form will be appropriated.
Thank you in advance,


Is this a tonneau cover?  You can get a cover that will work around the roll bar.
Needs pics?  You make cuts that either overlap and use Velcro or zipper....
