This is a sill pic from the Elvis movie Spinout . I know he drove a Cobra in the movie but this is not a Cobra . Anyone know what it is ?

If memory serves, it's a modified (most notably the rear wheel arches were opened up, and rollbar and windshield added to look more like a Cobra) fiberglass Microplas Mistral kit-car body (on who knows what chassis). Originating in England, licensed spinoffs were made and sold in sunny California by Bud Goodwin's Sports Car Engineering as a "Spyder". Goodwin later went on to found Fiberfab. Another version of the Mistral was made in Cali by Track Kraft as the TK-102.
