I've seen this car in person, several times and it always stops me in my tracks. I'm a sucker for a Ginetta G4. One of the prettiest cars ever IMHO.

I found on of these for a friend to buy for vintage racing in the early 80s before they were worth anything. After a couple of years he sold it for hat now seems ridiculoulsy cheap. The car had non-stock front suspension and it turned out to be a factory race car set up with (IIRC) Formula 2 style front end and a 9,000 rpm 997 cc MSE screamer Cosworth.

Didn't have the heart to tell him what it would be worth in later years.

In reply to wspohn:

Was that the guy who ran Ace of Suedes? For some reason his name escapes me, he had Astons, and Brabham BT21 (I think).

There were two, one run by John Maycock and one (the car I spoke of) by John Jordan.

This Ginetta G4 Roadster is prepared and maintained so nicely by Eight-time SCCA Runoffs Champion Kent Prather. This G4 Roadster would be the dream of many people and fans. Really great work and amazingly maintained. Well, the buyers would need a really good and reliable firm for 100% safe delivery of the G4 Roadster. Once my aunt hired auto shipping Norwich offered by Connecticut Auto Transporter for her car delivery and found it a reliable firm. This would be a good suggestion for safe car delivery for the Ginetta G4 Roadster.
