Default Space Frame Mystery

Hello everyone

Recently I became a 'proud owner' of a space frame (taken in as part payment against a debt)

I was led to believe that it was Cobra 427 tube formed frame which apparently is much stronger than a box section frame.

In general, the Cobra Club forum members fell about laughing saying that 'no way' was this is Cobra 427.

One member suggested that it would make a good hanging basket - cheeky beggar! though finally someone did come up with the suggestion of posting a thread on this forum for a more valid expert opinion.

Am I gonna be in luck?

I've attached a couple of images.

Can anyone shed any light and if so... how much could it be possibly worth?

Cheers Guys

Pics of chassis in question







Although it's not a chassis I recognise it does have the basic feel of a Cobra chassis (albeit made with scaffolding tubes ) but I wouldn't class it as a space frame, too basic and not enough bracing.

And no apparent mounts for the diff and rear suspension...

The rear section makes it look like a very heavy glider.
