Canada once had it's own Cobra's. Ford gave the nod, and Ford dealers stocked and sold them. They weren't made by Shelby, and so may be considered a replica, but they were a fully turn-key production car.
Known as the Aurora GRX Cobra.

Actually there were three variants of the Aurora: the GRX, the Mark II, and the 302SC which had a Corvette-style folding soft top.

I know a guy who owns the very last Aurora ever made, a 302SC in dark blue with tan leather interior. It's for sale if anyone's interested.

Brian, When we were down at Laguna Seca, did you see the one that was in the Cobra corral?

That's not to bad a price actually. The red one for sale, looks just like an original slabside, other than the interior changes.
