Oliver Bryant – 1964 AC Cobra 289
If you have attended any of the classic race events held in the UK in the last few years, you are likely to have seen this 1964 AC Cobra, piloted by Olly Bryant or his father Grahame Bryant, fighting it out for a podium place. Always competitive, this car has quite a history to it.
It is the only AC Cobra manufactured in period that does not have a CSX chassis number. It is actually the car known as HEM 6, the experimental Cobra. The car features a small front spoiler, an original feature seen on the car in 1964, when the car first raced at Goodwood in the RAC TT celebration, driven by Roy Salvadori. The car started life wearing a chequered flag type livery of black and white before being repainted in the red and gold seen on the car today sometime in the seventies.
