Ginetta Cars is a racing and sports car maker based in Great Britain. They are particularly located in Garforth, Leeds, West Yorkshire. The company was founded by the four Walklett brothers, Douglas, Trevers, Ivor, and Bob in Woodbridge, Suffolk.

The brothers’ first product to be sold is the Fairlight, a body shell made for the Ford 8 chassis. This is made from a glass fibre and was sold at £49. But Ginetta’s first car is actually the G1, which was not meant to be produced publicly. This was based from the design of the Wolseley Hornet six.

From Yorkshire, they moved their location to Witham, Essex in 1962 and then operated their factories in Ballingdon Street between 1972 and 1974. After this time, they decided to go back to Witham and stayed there until 1989. The four brothers divided themselves into several divisions to equalize the labor.

Trevers was assigned for designs, Douglas for management, Ivor for engineering, and Bob for sales. When they all retired in 1989, they tried to sell the company but it was not a success. It was then purchased by a group of enthusiasts from all over the globe, led by Martin Phaff.

Ginetta’s first car is the G2, which has a tubular type chassis and aluminum body. Only 100 units of this was made. The next car made was the G3. This, on the other hand, has a glass fibre body and was released in 1959. The G4 was released in 1961.

The G4 is powered by the Ford 105E engine and is made out of glass fibre GT. The G2 and G3 were actually built for competition while the G4 is more likely for everyday use but can still be competitive in races. Over 500 of the G4 were made until 1969.

Ginetta’s success pushed through over the years until they were able to execute their own racing championship matches.
