I don't think Superformance ever used Jaguar suspension. Does it have quad coil over shocks in the rear?

Measure the distance between the inner pivot axis and the hub carrier axis. There are several length lower control arms.

When you say "older build" cobra can you clarify "older"?
If it is indeed a Superformance you should have a chassis number stamped on the front cross-member and on a plate on the firewall or wheel housing. On paperwork maybe?
A very early Superformance has a different suspension then later versions. The wiring also differs....

That should narrow the make down - although I know of no kit that used Triumph myself. It's got a trunion on the bottom and ball joint on top?

Not a Shelby if the front suspension is Triumph. They didn't/don't use Jag rear suspension either. Probably going to have to post some photo's, especially of the suspension and under hood frame. We could probably ID from there.

Sounds more like an Arntz. Jag rear, MGB front, Chevy engine, and it is an old build with no markings.
