1965 Griffith 200

Posted: 13 August 2022
Serial #: 200/5/169
Price: $125,000
Location: Southern Delaware
Contact Info: Thomas Uss
Description:
I've owned this car for approximately 47 years. It has been to numerous car shows and has taken 1st place and a best in show at a local foreign car shows. This 1965 Griffith, is a series 200, (SN 200/5/169) with its original Ford 289CI engine (now sporting much more horsepower) and a 4-speed top loader transmission. The motor was built to HIPO plus specs by the original owner. This car is extremely fast and very rare. It has Spax shocks up front with the heavier Tuscan springs and still has its original TVR rear. Mona Lita steering wheel with custom made Griffith Badge. It also sports a rare factory luggage rack.I have the original take off's, plus a complete TVR rear. I also have a few hard to get items, also, some not so hard, not installed. Plus original Griffith Club newsletters from the 1970's etc.

The car has an older, on frame, nut and bolt restoration, at that time the engine was taken apart and new seals and rings etc. The car was painted in the original Regal Red. The cars finish is starting to show its age with a few chips and cracks; in addition, to some cracking over the right rear wheel well caused by the car falling off a jack stand. The car has been garaged 99% of its life.

I am the third owner of the car and it was prepared for racing by the first owner. The original cam was replaced by a High performance cam, solid lifters, and larger HIPO balancer, 12.5 compression ratio pistons and period correct 2 4's on a Cobra low rise intake. The original dual point distributor and proper spark plugs are in use. The car has less than 25,000 miles which reflects the mileage when I purchase it at 16xxx. It also has the proper Faria tack. Most of the other gauges are original and working. The cooling is now through a custom made cross flow aluminum radiator with puller fan. The car is very fast. The last car sold a few years ago, at an online auction sold for $135.000, check the latest prices at Hagerty. Cars like this do not come up for sale very often.

This car is a must for any collection. My very fair price $125,000.
