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 https://www.michaelsvintageracing.com/1965-ginetta-g4-0189 or give us a call at (845)226-4979.

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!
