||This is a Greeves
model 63C, QUB Griffon. Doctor Gordon Blair of the Queen's University
Belfast (QUB) worked on the Greeves 380 engine to improve performance -
mainly by improving the cylinder porting and exhaust system. The
380's power was increased by 6.5 bhp to 44 bhp. The orange fiber
glass metal flake color was named "golden glow".
particular QUB was manufactured in December, 1972. The manufactures
plate contains and interesting statement, " THIS VEHICLE DOES NOT MEET
FEDERAL STANDARDS AND IS MEANT FOR COMPETITION PURPOSES ONLY".
||A close up of the
1975 race decals still on the tank. The top one is from the Gila
Bend Grand Prix and the lower one from the Rockinstraw Grand Prix.
The tank has some desert rash on the top left and will need cosmetic conservation.
I would like to find a good replacement, let me know if you have one for
sale. Of course it must be very reasonably priced - i.e. cheap.
