The hugely charismatic DAX 427 (also known as Tojeiro) has remained the undisputed market leader for more than 30 years and has steadily established itself as a much-sought-after classic sports car in its own right. The car’s enduring popularity owes much to DAX’s policy of continual product improvement and painstaking attention to detail. A philosophy that has clearly shaped every aspect of their cars from its state-of-the-art technical specification, top quality composite body and sumptuous leather interior to its deep-dished Halibrand style wheels, trademark stainless steel side-pipe exhausts and low, wide, purposeful stance.

The car presented here is a 1976 Dax Tojeiro 427 5.7-litre V8 homage to the Cobra, built and first registered in 1991, having covered just 4,000 miles. You get the feeling that whoever decided on this car's specification and colour scheme thought long and hard about every aspect of this show-winner and patently it was worth it. It's finished in a delicious Rouge Alhambra Pearlescent with Magnolia hide piped in Maroon and deep red Wilton carpets which, on paper, sounds a little OTT but in the metal really works and when combined with the stainless side exhausts, chromed tubular bumpers and over-riders, chromed roll-over hoop, alloy stone guards, alloy flip-top fuel filler, Rosewood steering wheel and shiny Halibrands, render this piece of automotive confectionery almost good enough to eat. The details and finish are second to none, whilst the performance, sound and experience are almost indistinguishable from that of a Shelby Cobra.

Offering fantastic value for money, this car has been extremely well cared for and drives as well as it presents. With Dax being still very active with parts, servicing and advice, any new owner will become part of a very special group of enthusiasts who know and promote, via buoyant clubs and gatherings, these cars extremely well. Once you have felt the shove of a 5.7-litre V8 in a lightweight open-top car, you’re hooked! A great car and a real opportunity to buy a very special DAX.
