1965 TVR Griffith Series 400 with its original Ford 289ci 271hp V8 and a top loader 4 speed transmission. Only about 60 were built and very few with the 271hp engine. The Griffith is a 2. 00 lb. sport car with a tube chassis. fiber glass body. independent suspension and a Ford V8! Extremely fast and very rare. The car has been stored indoors most of its 51 years and has only racked up 2. 75 actual miles. Most of the miles were on the ¼ mile drag strip as this car was purchased new and drag raced the first few years of its life not being licensed for the street which attributes to the solid condition of the chassis. It retains all 5 of its original wire wheels and tires! This is a running driving survivor with only 2. 74 miles on the clock! That's 2. 00 miles not 24. 00! The car was originally light blue but the original owner wanted competition orange so he had the dealer paint it before delivery.

 

 

The Griffith was the creation of Jack Griffith. a Ford dealer on the east coast who was campaigning a 289 Cobra in SCCA road racing when he got the idea to put the Cobra 289 V8 in a TVR Grantura MKIII. A British sports car weighing in at 1. 50 lbs. and with 271hp it made for a Cobra Killer on the track. Thus the Griffith was born and Jack worked a deal with Ford to provide the engines and TVR to import Grantura's with modified chassis and no engines or transmissions to his shop in Syosset. N. Y. where he installed the 289 Ford V8 and 4 speed transmissions.
