Default mystery cobra

Hi guys , Robbie here in Tassie . Late last year I bought a Cobra from Melbourne , that I was led to believe was a Superformance built car .
Being new to Cobras , and being a bit impulsive , I bought the car in good faith , but am now trying to figure out what I actually have bought .
this car has a 530 cubic inch Chev BB in it , auto transmission and 9 inch rear , is dark blue in colour , with white stripes . I have tried to load photos of it but cannot figure out how to do it !!!
I purchased the car from a Mick Keskic who told me he bought it from South Africa . It does have a Shamrock Cobra logo between the seats , but other than that has no tags or plates to say what it is . The previous owner isn't forthcoming with any info so I was hoping someone out there might know the car and could shed some light on what I have .
Any help would be much appreciated . . .
Robbie Kingston , Hobart

Set up an imgbox or similar account save your photos there and then upload into your posts. However I think you need 10 posts first to then qualify for photo uploading through this forum.

Pictures will be the best medium to enable others to assess what you might have.

As the say Caveat Emptor.......but provided your base elements are suitable no reason why you can't develop the car into something that suits your needs.

I was in RSA a couple of months ago and the only Ac Cobra I saw was a Shamrock Ac Cobra and I heard that they are not made any more over there. They certainly not a superformance quality unit

Hi guys, thanks for the response , i have had several attempts at loading photos to help my cause , but have had no luck (im not tech savvy) . I was curious to know if it was unusual for a cobra to be installed with a 530 cubic inch Chev BB . Its a BIG ENGINE !!!! And has massive amounts of torque !!!!
I wasnt looking for a Cobra , just looking for an old school American Muscle Car with a big block and lots of attitude . Thats certainly what i have , but i would just like to know more about it . As i said , the previous owner wont answer my calls . He told me its a 2002 model , but it was registered as a 1987 model . There is nothing on the chasis to tell me when it was built , and the only reason i could register it here in Tassie was because it had rego history in Australia
