Picture of the Month – March
This months picture shows Gilbern Genie G.1014 on its maiden trip in Westchester, Ohio following full restoration by Club member Daniel Davis.
This early Genie has returned to the road after being laid up for many years, originally equipped with wire wheels it was converted to Gilbern alloys by a previous owner in the UK prior to crossing the Atlantic.
Although Gilbern were keen to develop an export trade and a small number of GTs were supplied in left hand drive, company finances and limits to production capacity meant that few cars were actually supplied directly to overseas buyers.
Over the years many Gilbern cars have made their way to overseas locations far from their birth place in the Welsh Valleys.

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.
