GORDON KEEBLE (1964-1966) CAR HISTORY

Car review on GORDON KEEBLE

The Gordon Keeble sounded like and should have been an ideal recipe for commercial success: cheap American V-eight muscle combined with Italian styling and British chassis know-how.

First seen in 1960 as the prototype Gordon GT (and inspired by the Corvette-powered Peerless created by Jim Keeble and John Gordon), the Gordon Keeble didn’t go into faltering production until 1964, renamed GK1. With a 300 bhp engine from the Chevrolet Corvette, the Gordon Keeble, with its glassfibre body – the prototype was steel bodied — was devastatingly quick, good for 70 mph (li2 kph) in first and nearly 140 (225) in top. In fact, so lusty was the torque, the gearbox was nearly superfluous. Handling was good too, with a DeDion axle at the rear and a complex space-frame chassis of square section providing grip, balance and a good ride although the unassisted steering suffered from too much kickback. The simple, restrained four-sealer coupe shape with its elegantly slanted twin lamps was the work of a 21-year-old Giugiaro, then chief stylist at Bertone, who later to moved on to Ghia before finally setting up Ills own studio in the late 60s.


By 1965 only 80 cars had been built as the fledgling company battled with component supply problems and under-capitalization. Had the factory — based at Eastleigli, Southampton, on the site of the local airport — been able to build the cars quickly enough, there was no doubt the Gordon Keeble would have been a success, if only because it was under-priced. A further 19 were built under new management in 1966, but to no avail, and the company closed its doors that year. Today, 90 Gordon Keebles are still on the road.
