Details

  • Make: Griffith
  • Model: Series 400
  • Year: 1965
  • Location: Millersburg, OH
Griffith chassis 400-5-031 is one of the most award-winning restored Griffith motorcars. The chassis number and car have been authenticated in the official Griffith Motorcar Registry. The owner of this very rare Griffith brought the entire vehicle through an extensive restoration and it has garnered several “First In Class” awards. One of only 59 Series 400 models built, this Griffith, based on the TVR Vixen body style design, was meticulously detailed and brought back to a better-than-new condition. Following the restoration the Griffith has been stored in a temperature controlled environment. This spectacular Griffith has been shown at many of the annual Gathering of Griffiths and TVRs at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Vintage Grand Prix and was featured as the fine example of the Griffith models in attendance. The engine is a fully restored 271 hp Ford 289 High Performance powerplant backed with a Ford top loader 4-speed transmission and the original Salisbury IRS differential. The complete interior has been restored to the original factory style and all instrumentation is period correct. This motorcar, weighing in at only about 1900 pounds, is an absolutely breath-taking example of one of the fastest cars built during the 1960s supercar era.
