Marcos 1800 1965 FRear three quarter view

Marcos first produced its classic 2-seater coupe way back in 1964, hard to imagine that this basic body-shape is still being produced, although in much modified form. Marcos took the unusual step in using laminated plywood for its chassis construction and GRP for the outer body-panels.

Another unusual feature was that the front seats were fitted to the rear bulkhead, therefore the driving position had to be adjusted by altering the pedal box position (with a small wheel under the dash). The Marcos 1800 used a 1783cc Volvo four cylinder engine as used in the Volvo P1800 coupe and shared the same two seat coupe body with its Ford engined stable-mates.
