Yellow Ginetta G15I was actually the original owner and builder of Genevieve, bought brand new from Ginetta as a kit.  The registration reflects the fact it was first registered in Lanarkshire Scotland.  I and my brothers built it on my father's farm, Hamperhill near Braidwood in Lanarkshire and I had it for about ... more here

Hi Des,

I had a look at some questions being asked in this page:

Tony Blunt asked about G15 replacement chassis: I know that Mark and Tom Walklett built one last year and in the process they re-made the jigs to build others if asked.  Contact the Walkletts at DARE: +44 (0) 1621 869199

Dave asked about changing dimensions of rear side windows: simply DON'T do it!  The small rear side windows, as also the external door handles are characteristics of the Mk 2 G15 ...

Matteo Panini should contact the Ginetta Owners Club registrar, Trevor Pyman for this kind of questions (I did it now, let's see what happens) or maybe contact me directly as we share some good friends here in Italy as well.:)

Richard asked for G16 window frames, also for this he should ask the Walkletts as they still build them ...

Also for G27 panels, they should ask the Walkletts they have plenty of moulds in their garden, and many parts are interchangeable between models.

Saluti, Luigino Masarati

I am working on a G15 at the moment.  This one has the tiny rear side windows like this.  Because the car is stripped I have been asked to modify them before a new headlining is to go in.  I don't know if all G15's are DIY modified or if they altered the mould for the larger windows.  Is there a template available?

I have recently purchased a 1972 Ginetta G15 from Doug Franklin of Telluride, Colorado, USA.  Mr Franklin purchased the car from Adrian Bone of the UK inYellow Ginetta G15 November of 1988.  At that time the car was shipped from the UK to New Jersey, USA where Mr. Franklin lived at the time.  The car was built/owned by George Ritchie of Scotland prior to Mr. Bone.  The chassis # is G15-0346.  The car was the 1983 Scottish Hillclimb Championship car.  The car is pictured in the Ginetta G15 Super profile.  Mr Franklin raced the car in Autocross races for a very short time before blowing up the motor.  Mr. Franklin disassembled the car at that time and it sat until I purchased it.

I have inventoried the parts and am in need of some missing bits.  Do you know if there are any stock seats or seat frames available?  I have purchased a race motor built by Alan Peterson of Seattle, WA USA.  It is an R21 cam motor with dual DCOE carbs but I do not have a header/intake.  Mr Ritchie had the car set up with SPAX shocks.  Are any of these available?

A G4 nears completion in the workshop, Norman's Cosworth G21 will be here for work soon, as will Zane's G15 just as soon as we can get over to pick it up.

The turbo G32 goes up to Scotland next week and Dave and Nina's G21 is coming down as it is sold to a guy in Germany.
