What a drop dead sexy car. Way out of my price range, but it's always nice to have a dream car in the back of one's mind ;-P
Re: 1965 ERA Ford GT40 #2066

Mixed production. The earlier cars were steel (p76 of the assembly manual REV 4c/2013). If I remember correctly what Peter of ERA told me, after 2077 the remainder were made with a stainless steel sheetmetal chassis in semi-monocoque style in place of the steel. A stainless 400 material. I own 2087. Hope that helps.

I talked with Peter this morning and his recollection for the change over was #2060. The newest owners manual was revision 4C done in 2013. There were some changes made in #2077 and later chassis hence the update.
