1970 Ginetta G15 Sold - £POA

A rare opportunity for G15 enthusiasts is presented with the purchase of this car. This Ginetta has had only one previous owner since it's purchase in 1970 and has been used as a road car. The original purchase receipt, build instructions and detailed maintenance history are included with the sale. Over the years a few adjustments have been made to improve performance but the main principle has been to keep the car as close to original as possible.

An electric cooling fan has been added and the original 875cc sport engine was replaced with a 998cc Imp sport “Rally” engine, a factory optional extra. This change resulted in increased torque and a power output of around 70bhp.

The car has also had a rebuild; reinforcing plates were welded to the imp rear subframe of the chassis as well as the installation of a new transaxle. The body of the car had it's original paint removed by hand prior to a respray. Additionally a high efficiency radiator was fitted, the lower chassis tubes were treated with waxoyl and the cylinder head machined to receive Wills rings gaskets.

As with many classic cars, work has been needed to keep this G15 in good road worthy condition. It is a pleasure to say that any additions, rebuild works and upgrades have made it suitable to road conditions in 2012 while keeping the look and feel of a real classic.

A really pretty and useable British kit car from the greatest era of kit cars in the uk.
