Bordinat Cobra

Post by Ferngar » Mon Jan 21, 2019 3:48 pm

I've never heard of this before, but the Bordinat Cobra was shown at the Interplas Exhibition at Olympia in 1967. Body is made from plastic and it features automatic transmission. Some web sites claim it was a 289 others say 427.
Do we like it?

Similar to the Mustang 1 Concept from 1962
I only remember it as I had a diecast Matchbox toy car of one.

Not a Cobra but a nice car itself.

Agreed, it's not a Cobra as we know it but apparently it is a Cobra chassis and number.
