Offered here for your consideration is ERA2124, one of the most unique ERA 289 FIA cars in the US. For the past 6
years, this car has served as a realization of a dream, however, it is time to pass it on to its next owner. The car you see here has been a joy to own over the last 14K miles and has been the focus of
admiration among many enthusiasts within the global Cobra community. It has been a SAAC 37 Replica Class Winner,
ERA display car at Carlisle, a winner of many local shows, an occasional autocrosser, canyon carver, and road
tripper. The lovely thing about this car is that it is so sorted and comfortable that one can just hop in, buckle
the harness, turn the key, and go – no matter if it’s down the road for some ice cream, or to a destination
across this beautiful country.
The time with this car has been pretty well documented in an ownership log that is located on ClubCobra. Simply
type ERA2124 into any search engine and it can be found. Please feel free to contact me to discuss the car any
time. I have all build records and receipts as well as a few spares. Now on to the specifics and features of this
Toyota/Lexus Woodland Green Metallic with Lamborghini Yellow FIA nose stripe and removable vinyl number circles
Fiberglass, reinforced, 289 FIA body fitted over ERA’s supremely-engineered steel frame
The car is fitted with an easily-removable LeMans Hardtop that copies those originally present on two cars that
raced in the 1963 LeMans race. The top has been replicated and is used currently by most every 289 cobra racer
running in the European Historic series events such as Goodwood, Spa, etc. This car has also been modified such
that the trunk lid is split just behind the top and hinged to open backwards just as the cars were that raced
LeMans. The trunk lid also features the storied suitcase bumps which provided clearance to meet FIA regulation
back at that time. To keep out some weather and extend the driving season in colder climates, a set of side
screens are also included with handmade and quilted storage bags.
Front Brake Cooling Ducts and Cibie driving lights round out the front of the car.
ERA’s 289 FIA side exhausts in high-temp black bring the thundering V-8 music to your ears. The exhausts contain
silencers, however, they allow just enough noise to not be too obnoxious while maintaining the sense that this
Cobra means business.
Fully carpeted and finished interior with door pockets, drop—center dash, glove box, and Stewart Warner gauges.
The center gauge stack also includes a period 2-5/8” 10psi fuel pressure gauge to round things out. The
transmission tunnel is topped with a 289 street car replica T-handle shifter. Seating includes one Kirkey Vintage
Race for the driver’s side on adjustable sliders, and a full leather 289 “street seat” for the passenger
crafted by noted Cobra restorer, Dave Wagner. 3” 4-point harnesses by Crow are fitted to keep you planted in the
seats. There is also fresh air vents, a fire extinguisher, and battery cut-off switch behind the passenger seat
for added comfort, safety, and security. Underneath the dash hidden away from view is a 12-V power socket for
charging a GPS or Phone during larger trips. Two steering wheels are included, one wood-rimed wheel fixed to the
steering column, and another suede-lined Sparco wheel that is detachable through the use of an additional steering
shaft that can be changed out of the column.
The 347cu in stroker engine is fitted with a Skat Crank and aluminum pistons and topped with many period-correct
features such as the ERA 289 coolant expansion tank, stamped steel valve covers with high-rise breathers, and 48
IDA weber carburetors personally set up by Jim Inglese at SAAC 37 (he was very happy with the way the car drove).
These beautiful sounding webers are fed through a mechanical fuel pump/regulator up through a period race fuel
distribution manifold and “octopus” cloth braided fuel lines. Spark comes via Pertronix Flame Thrower
distributor, electronic Hall Effect ignition, and wires. Controlling all the engine breathing is a set of Dart Pro
1 aluminum heads and heavy duty roller rockers actuated by a hydraulic roller ca
