Default Only 190 in USA for sale

Stumbled across this on Youtube, only posted yesterday. ZT190 sent to US for cold weather testing has resurfaced after being in storage for 17 years and is up for sale. Only 2205 miles, no mention of a price. I am guessing its a company called Schrader Performance that's selling it, that's what the YT user name led me to, although there's no mention on their website. https://www.shraderperformance.com/

Wonderful automotive history, it belongs in a museum in Britain, the Americans know nothing of these cars.

Unlike most Americans, I believe that Shrader Performance know quite a lot about the cars, how about a MG260 with 1000hp? For those who do Facebook:

It's a very nice car, I saw it in the flesh at christmas when I went over, he also has the grey ZT-T 260 that he replaced the original Mustang engine in with a Coyote 5 litre job, knocking out well over 500bhp at the wheels (his aim is 1000bhp) I'm hoping to see it at a drag strip over there, he also has a ZT-T in Typhoon, I took a few photos while I was there but trying to post them here has been problematic to say the least.

Several cars were abandoned in Minnesota as they were there for winter testing when MGR went bust. 75's and MGFs. There was an SV-S at Roush for supercharger testing and a ZT-T somewhere else. A friend of mine bought a couple of the 75s several years ago, and the SV-S is in safe hands with an enthusiast. Schrader's main interest is with ZT-T260s of which I believe they have two, including a supercharged Ford Coyote engined dragster putting out almost 800bhp. I think they got the V8s into the country listed as parts by removing the engines before shipping.
Myself, I have the only ZT-T in Canada although there are several 75s, one being a tourer, probably 40-50 MGF/TFs and one SVR in pieces, a project in progress.

It would be intereting to find out who has true legal ownership, not just that they have physical possession.
