There's a SUNBEAM TIGER for sale in the UK with the original FORD 260ci plus a FORD 289ci fitted in it for $84500. It's close to the AC ACE with a FORD 289ci.
Search FANTASY JUNCTION and you'll find it.

I reckon a call to Ecurie Bowden, Duttons and Oldtimer Australia will identify any genuine cars on the market.

Joe Calleja has a few spare cars - talk him into offloading CSX 2105

You could have had a replica that was built by John Ohlsen , alloy body, leaf spring etc etc had permission from Shelby and was LHD a few weeks ago, I posted a link and pic to the auction... gone now though at what I thought was reasonable money.

An Autokraft is for sale at the moment if you want an alloy bodied 30+ year old Cobra without the stratospheric price tag. 1987 AC Cobra Autokraft MK IV

Such a lovely red car. I wonder what the price is? Alloy body so ticks a lot of boxes and a good start for a project.

Is this it Jac? This apprently is a replica built in NZ using an original 289. It turned up at a NSW club meet back in about '96. Loudest thing I've ever heard, you could still her him clearly at least five blocks away.
