There is precedence for a 289 in the MKIII big block car. After Shelby and Ford bailed on the Cobra program, AC who built the actual cars, started making a car they called the AC289. It was a MKIII with a 289, without sidepipes, or hood scoop, and no rollbar. They were sold in the UK as righthand drive and in the US as lefthand drive. A lot of the European racecar drivers, considered these to be the best handling of all the Cobra's! They also had AC badges front and back, but many have had Cobra badges added to the front. You would definitely stand out in a sea of SC Cobra's!
