Griffith chassis # 400-5-007 is a very special car. Owned by the current owner since 1967, this vehicle is an authenticated Griffith by the Griffith Registry.
The engine is a blueprinted 289 High Performance 289 fed by a set of dual quads. In 1966 the original chassis was replaced by a custom-built chrome-moly chassis reputed to have been built by Holman Moody in North Carolina and stamped with the company identification.
The body was moderately customized by the original owner and is impeccable in its appearance.
400-5-007 was used by the video production company for the video entitled “Bat Out Of Blackpool” a definitive program outlining the TVR-based Griffith and TVR Tuscan automobiles.
During the two-day video shoot the car was driven by the original Griffith Factory test driver, Mike Mooney, who is shown in the accompanying photographs standing next to it behind the original Griffith factory on Eileen Way in Syosset, Long Island, New York.
