Description

The Ginetta G15 was a British sports car made by the Ginetta company in Witham, Essex between 1968 and 1974. The car was initially available only in kit form but later some factory built examples were available. It was launched at the 1967 London Motor Show.

The body was of glass fibre and was mounted on a tubular steel chassis. The engine and four speed transmission were taken from the Hillman Imp range and were rear-mounted driving the rear wheels. The suspension was by independent coil springs at the front and rear with the front steering/suspension derived from the Triumph Herald. The first few cars retained the Imp rear cooling radiator but tended to overheat so in 1969 a Mk ii version with front mounted radiator with electric fan was fiited instead which cured the problem. The Mk II also had a revised dashboard and improved seats. A heater and windscreen washers were optional extras.

This Ginetta G15 is presented in very good overall condition and is finished in traditional with Ginettas, in orange with black interior. It comes with Cosmic wheels and is not track prepared which is unusual compared to other examples. A pretty and fun British sports car.
