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.
One of the more popular engine options for Marco was the Ford V6 3 litre engine which was also used by Scimitar, TVR and Ford themselves. The 3 litre V6 developed some 140bhp which gave the Marcos excellent performance and made servicing easier in the UK.
