Definitely not a Harrison chassis.

If you can post some more photos of the body from different angles and also see if you can get a photo under the car of the main chassis and also what the rear end/rear chassis looks like.

I think it might be an early Tucker. I think they had the battery mounted on the front cross member.

Cheers

Just found out it's a Sth African kit. No wonder the brains trust was puzzled.

Shamrock was making cars in the 80s..........That steering rack is from an Alfasud, and like many in SA we also used the Alfasud pedal box, which is a one piece with all the pedals and master cylinders l together .It has a brake booster which is great. I did replace the booster and master cylinder with ones from an early Ford Tempo.........same dimensions , but I had to redrill the brake master mounting holes......If its a Shamrock it will have a 92 inch wheelbase.....I built one.......It is a really good car........

The only reason I replaced the parts was because they wore out.......and could not find the Alfa parts...The Alfa pedals are also nice and skinny....

Thanks for the insight.

I had a Alpha Romeo GTV 1750 and they too had a underfloor pedal arrangement just like the real Ac Cobra which could be replicated if I wanted to go down that path on my RMC.
