1965 TVR Griffith 200 "Cobra Killer" SOLD

Super rare, authentic and a well-known Griffith 200. Very early VIN 200/ 5/ 007 and original low mileage example(13K miles). Few owners and some very nice and expensive upgrades. One of the very few “Refrigerator” cars with large side vents. The car is in a nice running and driving condition, and everything works. The original heater motor is restored but not installed. Trust me, you do not need a heater in a Griffith.
