Marcos 3L Volvo 1970

By the late 1960's Marcos had replaced its wooden chassis with a more conventional steel unit. Fortunately it stayed with the original swoopy, aggressive styling which had helped to establish the marque in 1964 and this body-styling remains in production today. Standard mechanical specification now included front disc brakes and an overdrive gearbox.

As well as being available with a Ford V6 Marcos also offered a coupe model powered by a Volvo 3 litre unit. The Volvo engine was a straight six unit (as opposed to the Ford V6 engine) and measured 2978cc. Like the Ford engine this model had plenty of power and was a far cry from the original Cortina engines used back in 1964-68.
