The first car, the G2, was produced as a kit for enthusiasts and consisted of a tubular frame chassis to take Ford components and aluminium body. About 100 were made. The G3 was introduced with glass fibre body in 1959 to be followed by the G4 in 1961.
The G4 used the new Ford 105E engine and had a glass fibre GT style body and the suspension was updated to coil springing at the front with Ford live axle at the rear. Whereas the G2 and G3 had been designed for competition the G4 was usable as an everyday car but still was very competitive in motor sport with numerous successes. Over 500 were made up to 1969 with a variety of Ford engines. In 1963 a coupé was introduced alongside the open car and a BMC axle replaced the Ford one at the rear. On test the car reached 120 mph (190 km/h) with a 1500 cc engine.
This superb Ginetta comes from a major single owner German collection and prior to this resided in a Swedish and a UK collection. Testimony of which is shown in various old MoT’s and their Swedish equivalents, which can be seen in the cars file amongst other paperwork. Obviously, the whole car was carefully restored, its engine has been rebuilt and today it presents itself in superb all round condition, a recent test drive showed, that it also drives as well as it looks.
Noteworthy is that the car comes at No Reserve and presents an opportunity simply not to be missed.
