427 OPTIONS 

*Note!  These are kit options only.  Most items are not available to the aftermarket.

tan seatWe can supply just about anything that you need to complete your kit.  Everything that's listed in our required parts list is available from us.  If there is something that's not on the list, please ask.

We will also make every attempt to accommodate special requests. If you are not mechanically inclined, or are short of time, E.R.A. can do anything to help make your assembly job easier. Many people choose to have us create a "roller". We install the suspension and permanently bond the body on at the factory.

At the right are some custom tan seats with green piping we did for a  potential "street car."
