I had a similar search last year.  I got a couple responses here from people selling some older wheels, but the prices weren't far from full retail on new ones.  I did eventually find a set for 50% off new, but I ended up having to restore them anyway due to shipping and other damage ):

My advice - unless you find something you like in person (and can verify proper fit and trueness) and can avoid shipping them pay the price for a set of new ones.  I suggest giving Bob a shout at Vintage Wheels as he knows/understands all the backspacing and fitment issues for the various Cobra replicas and will sell you a proper set of wheels.

These wheels are awesome - even on a 427 car.

FYI,

The FIA wheels were the first wheels to be used on 427 Cobras.

New and old wheels dilemma is known but some times you are lucky and some one has a set for 10 years laying in the garage not knowing what to do with it: sell it to me :-)
