    Not a pro, just trying some forensics... the distance from the door seam to the rear wheel arch is about half an original Spider's. That plus the vent window frame appearance leads me to believe it is a Southern Roadcraft recreation. How'd I do?

    Neither real spyder or conversion Daytona. Replica of some sort.

    Thanks, that's what I initially though, but the interior looks awfully real until you get the details:

    Not a bad version of a Replica. I've/we all have seen worse, I think.

    Yes reckon it is a Southern roadcraft one too. The EG Autocraft ones look better (the company also converted some real Daytonas Berlinettas into Spiders). You can normally tell an Autocraft one is a replica from 20 feet away, a Southern Roadcraft from about 100ft.
