Chaps - I don't know if you know, but I have an experimental Cobra price tracker spreadsheet going. Am trying to put in the prices and specs (as far as I can tell) in as I come across things for sale.

The car at the top of this thread was for sale in Feb 2019 for 60K, but is now up for £75K.

There was another Hawk (FAV220C) up for 75K with Duncan Hamilton earlier last year, but then it dropped to about 60K nearer the end of the year.

I'm not sure what any of this tells us about car values, but it is interesting to keep an eye on.

To find the price tracker, log in to the members area, and you will find it as the first menu item on the 'Members Content' menu. Please drop me a note when you see other cars up for sale and I will add them.

Cheers,
Andy
FAV220C is Roger King's old car and is exceptional. Probably the best Hawk ever built and well worth the price.
Cheers, Clive.

Not according to eBay....

Looks like a fully finished car for 80 K
- what Simon said - as far as I know, that's for a fully loaded car. More here; https://db427.com/
They are unpainted though, so add another £4-5K on top, unless you like the raw look. They are very nice looking cars, the ones on display at Goodwood were impressive.

That's very flattering, Clive - I'm blushing!

For the last 5 or 6 years the car has belonged to the father of Hamilton's sales manager, who kept telling his son he couldn't afford a real one and didn't want a replica. When mine appeared, consigned by the guy who bought it from me and did 14 miles in it over 3 years, Nick got his dad to take a look and he snapped it up. It's been very well looked after but used properly with trips to France and Spain etc. Probably should have kept it, much more reliable than all the original Cobra bits and I didn't mind getting it wet...

Aye Roger, you always miss things when they've gone! Happy New Year to you.
Cheers, Clive.

Looks like a study in how things should be done - I should go and test drive it!
Happy new year to you both...
