The story began in the 1960s when Mark Dunsford’s grandfather built a reputation for unsurpassed craftsmanship while working as the Master Trimmer for AC Cobra sports cars at their factory in Thames Ditton. He worked on cars that were driven by legends such as Sir Stirling Moss and Steve McQueen. His son inherited both a love of motorsport and a keen eye for detail and began to develop a range of seats for some of the classic sports cars of the time.
In the last 40 years some of those traditional skills have remained unchanged – the ability to craft leather and the attention to fine detail to ensure that stitching is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. However, automotive technology has evolved enormously and the result of 40 years of continuous development: an unsurpassed range of historic seats.
The Cobra range embraces seats which will fit into the vast majority of cars past and present, from the tiny and spartan to the grandest and most luxurious.
