Default Recognize this Cobra? Is it an FFR?

I found this image online. The car looked somewhat familiar to me, but I'm not 100% sure.

Does anyone here recognize this Cobra? Do you know what kit make it is? Is it a Factory Five Racing (FFR)?

Thanks.

Hey Dude (or is that Jude?}
With the Jersey plates It must be John Olsen's 289 street. FFR chassis, body by I can't remember (senior brain fart ) He makes bodies, hardtops, been on this site from time to time . John did the rest. There's a thread on this site.

That's the body guy, Mr Bruce ! If he says it's not the one I was thinking of , he'd be the guy to know !

I would suggest other than FFR.
Top of door to rockers tapers in correctly, FFR do the opposite flaring outwards.
Also, top of door sits closer to wheel opening versus much higher.
With 289 nose .......
My guess ERA

Or rebody?

The fender flares don't look like ERA.

Yes, those fender flares are very unusual...

I zoomed in on the nose badge and it looks like an FFR badge: it appears to have a large "5" on a blue background.

Well it's definitely not mine. It looks to me to be a "Unique Motorcars". The front and rear fender flares look to be "Unique's".

It has a trunk rack. Also note, no raised lip around the blinker FFR, JCF, CCX 289, UM all have that.
Looks like the ERA car in thier website.
Look up ERA 289.
