1965 Ginetta G4 #0206

This 1965 Ginetta G4 was the first G4 to arrive at our shop in 2008; it inspired our other drivers to look into Ginettas and resulted in three other G4s joining the stable! This car spent most of its life racing in Europe at famous tracks such as the Nurburgring, Spa, and Silverstone. It was shipped to California and raced for a few seasons by Tony Ingram before being purchased by its current owner, Hervey Parke. This is one of the more photogenic cars in our shop; the large Union Jack on its nose really attracts attention! This car is a competitive medium-bore racer, racking up wins against cars like Ferrari-engined Cooper Monacos!
