AC 428

Home > Cars > AC > AC 428

The 428 is the slightly tamer bigger brother of the raucous 427 Cobra, it shouldn't be overlooked though.

In 1967 Shelby branched out into GT territory in a bid to tempt Ferrari and Maserati buyers. He created the 428 by extending the Cobra chassis six inches, replacing its 427 cubic-inch Ford V8 with an engine one cubic inch larger, and clothing it in steel bodywork created by Frua of Turin. 

Offered as a fastback and convertible, the 428 fell between two camps. It cost significantly less than pure-bred Italian exotics like Ferraris and Maseratis, but considerably more than British contemporaries like the Aston Martin DB6 and Jensen Interceptor.

Small-scale production continued into the 1970s, but it was finally killed off by the fuel crisis of October 1973; the last 428 was built soon afterwards and sold during 1974.

Engine: 7014cc
