Very nice looking cob for sale here http://www.motorzoneuk.com/
Not sure about the "original AC chassis"or just what "finished by Gardner Douglas" means (doesn't look like a GD from the steering wheel) still nice though.

That is not a GD AFAIK, it is using a Sierra steering column, and the roll bar is completely wrong. Look more like a Sumo to me.

A GD body wouldn't fit very well on a ladder chassis either, mounting points would be interesting.

Doesn't have the usual internal door handles either.

Bit iffy to advertise something, which it's not. Be like advertising this as a Ferrari.....

Its not a sumo - handbrake and transmission tunnel look wrong. Roll bar mounting to far back.
Dashboard suggests its a Southern Roadcraft.

certain bits of it do resemble a southern roadcraft, sorry Robert but I disagree ref steering column, it looks like early Jag to me, same as on my southern roadcraft.
Handbrake position seems odd though, on the SR they are mounted on the side of the trans tunnel but on the drivers side normally. Body does not look like an Sr looks more Pilgrim in shape to me. SR literature refers to the chassis being close to the original so it could be a southern with a pilgrim bodyshell, I believe they are interchangeable fairly easily.
