The first time I saw an ERA GT40 was at SAAC11, Dearborn, in 1986, and I was immediately impressed at just how good it was. Then, one turned up at Watkins Glen in 1989, and on first seeing it I thought it was an original, until the left-hand-drive steering position gave the game away. Later, I went to the factory to see them being built, was even more impressed, and wound up driving their big-block demonstrator through the streets of New Britain, Connecticut. Wow, what a car!
Well, this small-block version has come on the market, and isn’t it superb? It has a 450BHP 302 Ford Motorsport motor, a ZF gearbox, JWAE-style wide bodywork, rust-proofing and undercoating, air conditioning and a very full specification with just too many features to detail here.
