Back in the 1960s, a man named Jack Griffith challenged the might of Shelby and his AC Cobra by making a British sportscar named Griffith 200. The Griffith gave the AC Cobra a true run for its money.

The car that you are seeing here is the third Griffith factory development car, bearing the chassis number 200/5/002. This is the only Griffith that featured a Ford 260 V-8.

While this car was kept by its second owner for 50 years, it just wasn't there to warm his garage. He kept his car in good running condition.

Locking hood latches have been put in the car alongwith restored rear seats and tinted rear windows. There are also several modifications to the engine like an Edelbrock Streetmaster intake, upgraded radiator fans, MSD ignition, Cobra aluminum valve covers, a Jaguar differential, and an aluminum fuel tank.

RM Sotheby's claim that "this is among the most historically significant extant Griffiths". Fancy owning one? Click on these words to check the full listing of the car
