This early Griffith example was one of the first 15 cars built by Jack Griffith in the USA (a copy of the title is available,) and in 2019 underwent complete restoration and race preparation by Griffith guru, Nigel Reuben of Nigel Reuben Racing. I am 6’2” in height, and great care and attention have been taken to ensure there is plenty of space inside the car for taller drivers.
Competing for the first time in June 2019 saw the Griffith win its class in both races at the SPA Summer Classic.
Prepared to the very highest of standards and in excellent condition, the bodywork was finished in Old English White and features a single black painted centre stripe.
