GINETTA G15 COUPE

2-door 2-seater sports coupé.

Smart little road car from Walklett brothers of Essex, using Rootes Imp Sport engine/transmission/rear suspension in tail, Triumph Spitfire wishbone front suspension and steering rack, and sturdy fabricated tube and sheet chassis. Good for 90mph, even 100mph at times, with excellent 40mpg economy. Looked  good, handled well, and was a useful club racing car into the bargain. All but early G15s had radiators up front (others overhead!). Sold as kit or built up, hence suffered with VAT in 1973-74.
