1965 Other Makes


This 1965 TVR Griffith, is a series 200, with its original HY PO Ford 289CI 271 HP V8 engine and a 4-speed top loader transmission. Only about 200 were built and very few with the HY PO engine. The Griffith is approximately 1400 lbs. sports car with a tube chassis, a fiber glass body, independent suspension and Ford V8. This car is extremely fast and very rare. I’ve owned this car for approximately 10 years. It has been to numerous car shows and has taken 1st place. This is an early Griffith 200-5-006 as you can tell by the side grill vents. The original headers and exhaust have been replaced with a stainless steel exhaust system by the previous owner. It has a gear reduction starter, which is smaller than factory, which was also replaced by the previous owner. It has spax shocks all the way around and it appears the springs are also newer. It still bears its original TVR rear. The front ball joints are new and still bears the original radiator and kenlow fans. It has an early dual-point distributor, new front brake pads, original VIN foil & a master cut-off switch was installed by one of the previous owners. The car was painted Mercedes silver (DB180) by the previous owner and the interior is red. The bonnet badge shows patina and it appears to be the original. The odometer reads 11,670 but I do not believe it to be true. The tachometer is the proper Faria tack. The inner fender wheel well has been signed by Mike Mooney, Dick Monnich & Roger Teck. Mike Mooney has written a book called “The Griffith Years”. It is a history of the Griffith motor cars 1963-1967 and beyond. It is an excellent book to obtain He has captured the history of the Griffith motorcars from 1963 to 1967 with behind the scene details.

The last Griffith (serial #200-6-074) that was on Ebay sold for 50K needing complete restoration and chassis repair. These are extremely rare when they are available. Thanks for looking!! J
