They have been listing these for quite a while now. Some of the parts are reproduction.

Depends on your wants and likes. It's a tribute to the original Super Marauder set-up and may be more refined and tuned: re-cast intake, re-cast air breather, re-cast fuel pump, etc. The carbs are FE style so the air breather base is semi-circular instead of full circle like the original. From a hardcore purist's perspective it's completely incorrect and, by the maker's own admission, the design and dimensions of the re-casted components were intentionally altered to presumably circumvent copyright infringement. A prospective buyer should be well-informed about these systems before plunking down that kind of money. If someone wants turnkey, this is the ticket. If someone wants an original Ford-authorized, Stroppe-designed, Moon-casted setup then it will cost a little more but with some luck and years of searching it is possible to assemble an all-original system for less than $10k.
