Picture of the Month – April

Gilbern Chevrolet V8

Gilbern were never adverse to providing one off  modifications to meet individual customers requirements, but one remarkable survivor is the ex Ken Wilson V8 GT pictured at the recent HRDC test day at Goodwood.

Factory built by Gilbern in 1965 to special order for racing driver Ken Wilson, this one off competition car was fitted with a 4.7L small block Chevrolet V8 engine.

The car had a relatively short competition career before disappearing for many years, but has now been restored and prepared for historic motor sport.

As others have asked, could this have been the Gilbern answer to the AC Cobra?

About the Club

The Gilbern Owners Club was founded in 1969 by Martin Ingall, our President, when the cars were still in production. In November 1979, with the expansion of the Club’s activities, it was decided to incorporate the Club as a company limited by guarantee.

The Gilbern is a specialist car that attracts people who are interested in the vehicle they drive. Experience with other makes where the manufacturer has ceased production shows the importance of an owners’ club in the maintenance of the marque. Without this interest and support, the general condition of the cars may decline and spares may become harder to find, with a consequent potential drop in the value of the cars.

Our objective is to ensure the continued existence of Gilbern cars by encouraging interest and enthusiasm in the marque. We provide a range of technical services and organise activities and motoring events to bring together Gilbern Owners and enthusiasts.

One of the Club’s major objectives is to ensure that no shortage of parts occurs which would render a member’s car un-roadworthy or unusable. With the help of a wide range of suppliers, we have been very successful and most essential components are available.

A monthly magazine, Welsh Rarebit, together with this website are the main forms of communication with our members.
