1965 Ginetta G4, #0189
This car is now for sale! Scroll down for more info.
Starting life as a 1000cc road car in the U.K., G4 #0189 was completely rebuilt by us and a 1700cc Ford Crossflow engine was installed. Usually driven by Michael Clifford Sr., the car has been competitive in VRG Group 2 and SVRA Group 8 alongside big-bore machinery like Ford Mustangs, Chevy Corvettes, and Porsche 911s. In the right hands, this car can be as fast as a mid-engined sports racer like a Lotus 23 or Elva MkVII!
