The Epic Journey of an Original AC Cobra – from Los Angeles to France

Imagine the thrill of the open road,and the wind in your hair while cruising the roadways of southern France in a classic American muscle car – a true work of automotive art.

That dream is exactly what Ziegler’s Special Request department made possible for one of our customers who had a very special request that required white-glove treatment.

Our customer, a lover of American classic cars, contacted us with a dream: to bring an original AC Cobra from Los Angeles, California to his home in the south of France. And, as always, we were more than happy to oblige with such high-value cargo.

We reached out to our American partners, gathering all the necessary details about the car – from its bodywork to its value – and carefully crafted the perfect plan to transport it across the Atlantic. Our team worked tirelessly to arrange the appropriate air transport, ensuring that the car would arrive in pristine condition at Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airport.

But our work didn’t stop there. We also had all the necessary international vehicle transport paperwork and import documents ready and waiting, so as soon as the car touched down on French soil, we were able to quickly and efficiently clear it through customs. And just a few hours later, the keys were handed over to our ecstatic customer who finally had the car of his dreams. 

So if you’re ever in the south of France, keep an eye out for this classic beauty as it cruises the private roads on the weekends.

At Ziegler, we specialize in making dreams come true. So, if you have a special transport need, don’t hesitate to contact us whether that might be transport of a small high-value package, or even an American muscle car. We’re here to manage your fragile and high-value transport requests.
