Marcos 3000 GT

Marcos 3l GT 1969 for sale

There were only just over 100 Marcos cars built with the 3L Ford V6 in a steel chassis and not many of these were left hand drive. From what I have heard it was 5 cars. Marcos took the steering from Triumph, most of the other components where British Leyland, MGB or Ford. Rear axle is Ford Capri, and front is Ford Cortina.

Exterior: It is said by the previous owner to be in the first paint. This is not easy to prove on a fiberglass body, but from the looks of it this could be true. It is not a perfect paint anymore, but very presentable. Rubber and glass etc. are all in good condition. It is rolling on the original factory magnesium wheels.  This is the model that was made with a steel frame and the frame is also in a very healthy condition.

Interior: The interior in these cars were vinyl and cloth on the seats. Inside the car is still all original and in good condition. Also, the wood panel and all instruments are in very excellent condition. The driver’s seat is always fixed in a Marcos, and instead you have a large knob where you can adjust the entire pedal set. And the car is suitable for tall drivers. 2m is not a problem. A cassette radio is hidden in the glove compartment. 

Engine: The 3L Ford V6 is said to be bulletproof. This one feels very powerful in this little light car. Also, it gives out a great sound from the twin exhaust. Engine bay looks very original. This is a Golden Seal blueprinted high compression engine that was new when fitted in the car at the building date.

History: Even though this car is year model 1969, it was for the first time in traffic in 1988! And from 1988 until today the car has covered a mere 11,200km! I do not think there is any other Marcos out there more preserved than this one! All inspection documents and invoices of regular maintenance are neatly collected in a binder together with important letter correspondence with Jem Marsh the founder of Marcos cars. Also, in the documentation is the receipt for Marcos stage III kit. The car was first sold to Mr Catwell in U.K but before it was assembled, sold back to Marcos. Mr Holmqvist was the Swedish importer of Marcos cars at the time and also working for Marcos racing division bought the car and took it to Sweden. After completion here it was used as a Marcos demo car and Jem Marsh (founder of Marcos) has been driving this car during the club meetings here in Sweden. It was later passed on in June 1997 and had a few owners until we got the car in January 2017. It comes with full documentation to support the until today driven km of only 11.200km!
