The Ford GT40 was an amalgamation of British-American design and development that won the 24 hours of Le Mans 4 times. The initial results were less than stellar, however, Henry Ford was determined and he knew a fellow named Carroll Shelby. The rest, as they say, is a wonderful chapter in automotive history.
ERA has been manufacturing kits of legendary cars in New Britain, Connecticut since 1981 and is well known for their attention to detail and dedication to the originals they duplicate.
This ERA GT emulates the true intent of the GT nomenclature by being a true touring, or “street legal” automobile as well as being “track ready” for club meets that include the epitome of top of the line horsepower and handling. It’s not for someone who’s shy.
It features a one of a kind power plant that begins with a 351 Ford block covered with Gurney Eagle racing heads and topped off by 4 very large Webber carburetors. It was all assembled by an engineer-designer-inventor of some note who was dedicated to perfection. The result is stellar, the opportunity awesome.
