As might be expected the car is a 289 Cobra replica, Ladder Frame chassis, MGB running gear, Rover V8 engine / box. Nice car, not too difficult to build, can be built to a tight budget if necessary ( ca. 7000 on the road?). Kits start around 2750, with various permutations thru" to: High spec. complete cars on the road for around 28,000. ALSO the source of Daimler Dart Kits and restoration Well worth a ring
