Dare seems to be the logical choice "Christ, they designed and made the cars in the first place, from memory the Walklett's were at the opening of your factory (LNT) so I assumed the two parties are in conversation with each other? They even make Ginetta's.
Well, that's my two pennies worth anyway.

thanks for the update lawrence, and i'm sure we all understand.. the moulds/jigs seem to be safe for now, which is good news, and hopefully access to them for owners of older ginettas will be sorted out...

Without the knowledge and advice from Dare my g4 would still be unrestored. It makes sense if both parties are willing for lnt to have a suitable agreement where dare can support the older models from parts to restoration

It's a Lotus 23B with extended arches.
Incidentally the purple car no.39 and the green car no.41 on the cover of Trevor Pyman's book are the same car.

Hello folks,

I'm currently working with the Walkletts to put together a compilation of photographs of Walklett conceived Ginettas.

We'd like to see anything: Road or competition. In period, from today or anything inbetween.

If anyone has an image that they own the copyright to and would be happy to be used, with an appropriate credit of course, then we'd be really pleased to receive it. The idea is that they will hopefully, eventually go on to a web site.

My email is sam@paul-stephens.com or if preferred they could be sent to Tom Walklett : enquiries@dareuk.com

Many thanks in anticipation.

Sam
