THERE IS SO MUCH INFO SEE THE PICTURES AND ORIG ORDER SHEETS
LETS GET TO THE MEAT AND POTATOS, SHE RUNS AND DRIVES LIKE IT WAS DESIGNED. THE ENGINE IS SUPPOSTLY 400 HP AND THAT IS ALL YOU NEED IN THIS GIRL IF YOU WANT TO DRIVE IT. THE AC SYSTEM WORKS - WHEN YOU SLOW DOWN 30 MPH OR LESS GET STUCK IN TRAFFIC NOT SO GOOD.

WIPER ARM AND BLADE ARE WITH THE CAR I JUST DO NOT KEEP IT ON. I HAVE BEEN OUT IN THE RAIN 2 TIMES COMING BACK AND GOING TO A CARS AND COFFEE AND WITH RAINX ON THE WINDSHIELD YOU JUST DON’T NEED IT.
ALL LIGHTS AND GUAGES WORK AS THEY SHOULD. EMERGANCY BRAKE WORKS, AND PLENTY OF MEAT ON THE BRAKE PADS.
CAR WAS ORIGIONALLY YELLOW AND OVER THE YEARS AND SINCE IT HAS BEEN DRIVEN NUMEROUS ROCK CHIPS WERE PRESENT.

THE PAINT STILL SHOWED WELL BUT I DECIDED LAST YEAR TO DO A COLOR CHANGE TO GUARDSMAN BLUE USING DUPONT CHROMABASE AND THEN 5 COATS OF CLEAR WET SANDED TO 4000 THEN POLISHED OUT. EVERYTHING THAT COULD HAVE BEEN REMOVED WAS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE WINDSHIELD AS I CONTACTED ERA AND COULD NOT GET THE THINNER WINDSCREEN SO WE DECIDED TO LEAVE IT IN. IT WAS TAPED OFF CAR WAS PREPARED AND PAINTED. THE MOLDING WAS THEN LIFTED AND PAINTED UNDERNEATH. IF I DID NOT TELL YOU- YOU MIGHT NOT SEE IT.
I HAVE THE ORIG ERA ORDER CHECK SHEET AND ERA ASSEMBLY MANUAL.
JUST TIME FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO ENJOY IT.

Hey mate. Your add doesn’t make a lot of sense. Its says it comes with a small block Ford motor, then says it doesnt come with engine and trans. Are you offering it at the base price, and then a second option with everything listed? Or its base lrice plus extas total cost only? Photos would also help buyers make decisions.

He put a link to 185 pictures in his very first post.
If I understand post 6 correctly, he was trying to say what the base car, plus options cost in 1992.
"The GT40 option list from 6/92 this was the original paperwork that came with the car and everything that the original owner checked off "
Then on top of that he purchased a motor and transmission also. That is my take on the ad. I could be completely off however. I'm sure he will chime in soon.

as I said the ERA gt40 option list was from 6-92 and was what the orig customer checked off when he was having the car built. So go to the orig and first posting with full description and there is a link in the first posting and here it is again . you might have to copy and paste it. And it does have a motor and trans

And the cost back then is why ERA stopped making the gt40. Per the owner of ERA peter they just were not making any money on the cars.
