ERA began work on this FIA Cobra in 2003 (#2092) and shipped in September of 2004. ERA supplied everything on this serpent except the engine and wheels/tires. They also bonded the coachwork to the (black-powder–coated) chassis.

The car was completed and titled in 2005 and has 9,100 miles [14,650 km] on the odometer… all on the street.

These fine moto photos were captured by Steve and his son Grant, using Grant’s Canon EOS Rebel T3 and its standard 18–55mm lens.

24 October, 2018: you can mark my gorgeous E.R.A. 289FIA SOLD! It’s going to a new stable and a very lucky new owner way over in North Carolina. And many thanks (from both me and my son Grant) for your site’s photography tips. Our good photos played a big role in getting the responses we received, and in the resulting sale of our Cobra.
