1965-1974 MARCOS Mini-Marcos specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
An cottage industry of specialists had emerged making the humble BMC Mini do things that its creator, Alec Issignonis, had never imagined for it. The Mini-Marcos was one such car, combining a lightweight low-drag fibreglass monocoque with the front-wheel-drive car’s drivetrain and suspension. It proved a successful combination, not only dynamically, but commercially, too – and when Marcos folded in 1971, the Mini-Marcos continued in various guises, and arguably inspired the Midas of the 1980s. The original has plenty of appeal, though – and good examples fetch strong money.
