Marcos 1500

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. The front seats were fitted to the rear bulkhead, the driving position had to be adjusted by altering the pedal box position (with a small wheel under the dash).

The Marcos 1500 used a tuned version of the Ford Cortina 1500 engine. This model was slightly underpowered and was quickly replaced by an improved 88bhp 1600 version.
