Ginetta G4 (1961).
Fantastic sixties racecar with round tube chassis.
A genuine round-tube Ginetta G4 is a very competitive car in historic racing. It is extremely fast due to its lightweight construction, and it sticks to the road and corners even better then many Lotus racecars. We found this fantastic car in Denmark, where it was used for historic hillclimb racing. It is equiped with a 1700 ccm Ford Crossflow engine, with dry sump, accralite forged pistons and an A6 camshaft. It has a stage III head, treated and balanced conrods and a lightened flywheel. The power is approximately 150 bhp, for a weight of 465 kg ! The engine breaths through twin Weber 45mm carburettors, and has a 4-in-1 exhaust system. The gearbox is a Ford Cortina close ratio box in combination with a Ford Anglia rear differential. Gearbox ratios are 2,51/1,64/1,24/1,00, and the diff ratio is 3,54. It has adjustable Spax shock absorbers, front disc brakes with Girling 14LF calipers and rear drum brakes.
