1966 TVR Griffith Series 200 with its original Ford 289ci 271hp V8 and a top loader 4 speed transmission. Only about 200 were built and very few with the 271hp engine. The Griffith is a 1,400 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 for almost 40 years and needs a complete restoration.

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 1,450 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.
