Willment – 427 Coupé

The only confirmed information about this car is that it was built. The general story is told the same way in different sources, but the details of the stories differ.

Vehicle Overview

John Willment, racing team owner and largest British Ford dealer at the time, built a supersonic body on an AC 427 Cobra chassis in 1965. The body is said to come from a no longer roadworthy Fiat 8V Supersonic. The chassis he acquired from Shelby when they had discontinued the manufacturing of coupe racing cars using Cobra as a base. To be able to put the body on the chassis, the structure had to be heavily modified. According to a sales ad from the 1970s, the resulting super sports car had a Holman & Moody motor featuring about 480 hp and reaching about 200 mph. Since then, the coupe was offered for sale several times.
