Street FIATurn-key (minus) Cars from ERA

ERA sells kits, not complete cars, but we can assist you in your car's construction - all the way to a finished vehicle if you supply the drivetrain  The car is custom built to your specifications.   There are also several experienced builders around the country who will do a good job.  Inquire.

Our "base" turn-key is listed below, options at the bottom. Many other variations are possible.

When we do install a customer-supplied engine, etc, on a complete kit, we road test about 100 miles.  While we certainly don't recommend it, we've had customers drive from Connecticut to the west coast straight out of the factory!
