This is one of the best examples
of “power meets workmanship” in the automotive industry. The E.R.A. 427 S/C
is widely known to be one of the best built and engineered performance cars
for the money.
This is definitely no Shelby
American CSX4000 Continuation Cobra nor one of the countless Mustang donor
E.R.A. Automobiles have been some
of the most sought after cars in the industry over the last 22 years, and
for good reason. Engineered from the ground up to be the most solid racing
chassis available, they produce less than 50 hand-built cars per year.
The body and chassis were built
by ERA while the engine and transmission addition was designed and completed
by Baldwin Design and Performance in 2001. This E.R.A. 427 s/c (Model #575)
is built for show and go. Some of the many highlights of this automobile

The car has been used primarily
for shows, club rally events and promotional display for a new Dallas
Automotive business. It is also the featured car of the 2003 Ghost in the
Machine artprint. The car is in incredible condition with only 1300 miles
and is appraised for REPLACEMENT value at over $90K. It is blindingly fast
and will standout from all others in any show.
Check around and you will find
that E.R.A. Automobiles are scarce and bring top dollar. .
