After a number of years of development and enjoyment, Dad is putting his 1965 Ginetta G4 up for sale. The car has been driven successfully with VRG and other groups at VIR, Summit Point, PIRC, Lime Rock, and elsewhere. Aside from adding water, it's been prepped for use at its next event. I've included some photos and details about the car below, but if you'd like more info please visit http://www.michaelsvintageracing.com/1965-ginetta-g4-0189 or give us a call at (845)226-4979.

I love the lines on these cars, it would make a nice little street car I bet but the engine might be a little too hyper for that. I see it has a concentric clutch release, how reliable is that? I thought about going that route with my own car.

Believe it or not, the engine is very smooth even at low rpm. It would definitely not be an ideal street car for many reasons, but I wouldn't list the engine as #1!

We use annular throw-out bearings on a number of the cars with very good luck. Longevity is good for race cars, but I can't necessarily say how that would translate to road use vs. the original setup.

Here's a video demonstrating the car's pace. After starting from last place at NJMP's Lightning circuit, the car slices through a field of 911s, 2002s, Datsun 510s, and Mustangs to take the overall lead. It turned 1:15s along the way, and that was before some effective suspension adjustments performed later!

I live very near NJ Motorsports Park. Never been there for vintage racing. Will need to check that out.

Due to family issues on the buyer's part, the car is still awesome, still fast, and still for sale!
