1973-1978 GINETTA G21 specifications Classic and Performance Car

The more upmarket G21 reflected Ginetta’s ambitions in the wake of the collapse of the kit car market. The sleek glassfibre body was fitted over a new backbone tubular steel chassis and a choice of Sunbeam Rapier H120 or Ford V6 engines meant that there was real power on tap. The two-seat coupé wasn’t offered with an opening rear door, and in the wake of the MGB and Ford Capri, this seemed like a oversight – but despite this, most of the 170 built were sold as complete cars, and not in kit form.
