Sold for $275,000 at 2006 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction.
AC constructed what some believe to be the ultimate Cobra. The 427 cubic-inch engine proved to be powerful and too thirsty for the European market. A special run of twenty six examples were constructed using the much admired coil springs and Ford's lightweight 289 engines.

The 1967 AC Cobra MK III with chassis number COB 6124 was offered for sale at the 2006 RM Auction in Monterey, Ca where it was offered without reserve and estimated to sell between $350,000-$450,000. All of the series MK III were right hand drive and were powered by Ford's 289. There were only twenty six examples built and this was the third from the last one created. It was constructed in 1967 and delivered in 1968. It is finished in Guardsman Blue with a black interior. Victoria Motor Works of Godalming, Surrey, UK sold this vehicle to Robert Hewitt. It passed through a few other owners before being sent to an American collector residing in Illinois. It then passed through a few more owners before finding its way to the RM Auction in Monterey, CA. It found a new owner at the price of $275,000.
