That's a good price for a glass body car

Yes, strong money.

'Truly as close as it gets to the real thing', though?

Fibreglass body, aluminium engine block??  Correct options are available...

That car originally had the "COB 427" reg number. It was built by Jim Blackburn at American Speed Specialties and at the time, they probably were the best replica available aside from Hitech Motorsports of Arizona (not to be confused with the later Hitech of South Africa).

Quite possibly, but it's being advertised now - and there are one or two cars on this forum that would fit the bill a little better!

I wasn’t attempting to validate the claims Roger, they’re clearly considerably wide of the truth. 😁

No, I didn't think you were!  Whoever's advertising it needs to get a bit more up-to-date with what's out there as that could be seen as a bit misleading.

I think its called 'Advertising license' ... a bit like the adverts for 'Cillit Bang' or 'Vanish power' 🙂

You mean Vanish doesn't work like they show in the adverts?
