MISSING NAME : Pete Schömer Contact : email@example.com Location : England WANTED - Stolen Marcos GT1800 racecar. Taken form my lock-up in North Vancouver in the early 1990's. The RCMP Police have a open case on this thieft. I ask anyone if they know the current location. I still retain the original V5 registration and Brass ID plate. Car ID is #4046L and registration is MYU 616D. I purchased this car from Jen Marsh direct in 1989. I have full proof or ownership.
Just a quick note to thank you for including my abandoned Marcos restoration in your classified section. The first respondent got the details from this site and purchased it so it has now found what will hopefully be a good home. If it's at all possible could you please remove the advert to avoid anyone else still thinking that it's availabe. Thanks again for the help and for a great site. Luckily I've still got one Marcos so I shall continue to be a regular visitor. Cheers Gary.and something to beware of...
I have had a few enquiries from your site, a sale was secured this last weekend to an enthusiastic lady, who had been a previous Marcos owner. I also had several scam type approaches offering to pay more for the car to cover transport costs from overseas sources, requiring bank details for transfer of funds, my reply was always thanking them for the interest but stating that the car was for sale on a cash only bases and that I would not become in involved in shipping arrangements. They never followed through. Sellers take care. Regards Martin Endsor.
I had another seller contact me to warn of suspicious activity.
There is a man [name removed] offering to buy anything and offers a stupidly high price without seeing the car, he offered me £19k for mine but it was all a bit strange and I suspect he is trying to con people as he wanted to pay by bankers cheque thing (sorry can’t remember it’s proper name) and to take the car straight away. There has been a huge number of thief’s of these recently so it may be wise to put up a warning about taking them and allowing them to clear before releasing the car.
Thanks for the feedback and remember, there's no charge for selling here (although any contributions are welcome!) , although it may take a little while to get your ad online!
Always check here when looking for a Marcos as all the money you pay goes to the owner; there's no middle man!

FOR SALE New kit Marcos Mantula V8 IRS coupé
Partially constructed and improved using components of the very highest specifications by a qualified design engineer working at Jaguar Cars Ltd:
I ordered a complete kit to build a Mantula coupé with Independent Rear Suspension from Marcos in 1989. I specified a number of special features: Although it is a coupé, it has the stronger Spyder chassis, it has fully adjustable suspension wishbones and a "half-leather" interior; the parts habitually exposed to direct sunlight are of Ambla material of identical shade to the leather. I also specified the very rare (1 of only 5, I believe), and very expensive, Jack Knight steering system (the standard car suffers from two major steering defects: excessive 'bump steer' and non linear steering response).
I started to build my Marcos when I was a design/development engineer at Jaguar Cars Ltd. I moved to France to work for Citroën in 1994 and I left my Marcos in England.
The Marcos is now near Lyon in France and I no longer have the time to finish my car.
I have improved nearly every aspect of the car.
My car features fully adjustable suspension geometry: Camber, castor, ride height and track width at the front, and ride height, camber, toe in, and track width at the rear.
In addition to the stronger chassis of the Mantula Spyder, I strengthened the body structure. The roof features a composite shear panel supported by reinforced pillars.
The aspect of the car has remained unchanged but the modifications provide the strength of a roll cage without the intrusion (see photo 3).
The braking system now comprises a brake balance bar.
The standard fuel tank is ridiculously small. I designed a new fuel system comprising an additional aluminium fuel tank located above the differential.
This additional tank communicates with the main tank via aluminium tubing. The main tank was modified to ensure that nearly every drop of fuel could be used and that the fuel gauge would measure the total fuel contents.
I attach some photographs of my Marcos.
As you can understand, a lot of work has already been carried out but a lot of the work is not visible.
Some of the work that illustrates my attention to detail that can be seen:
Photo 3 Sun visors trimmed in roof lining material.
Photo 4 Additional aluminium fuel tank above the space for the final drive (differential) unit.
Waxoyl dripping from inside the chassis tubes (all were drilled to provide a drain for any water and Waxoyl was liberally applied).
I am not surprised to read of the “disappearing chassis” of standard cars.
The black finish at the rear of the chassis is a coat of liquid rubber. I also applied a thick coat to the underside of both wheel
arches to avoid having problems with star crazing of the GRP due to stone impacts. Sound insulation will also be improved.
Sound insulation further improved using polyurethane foam to seal between chassis sheet metal (NB Spyder chassis) and transmission tunnel and inside the sill cavities.
At the rear, one of the aluminium tubes connecting the two fuel tanks.
At the front, the fuel tank vent tube (in copper, just behind “aeroquip” brake line) from a proper fuel tank vent valve [no resistance to letting air in (to let fuel out) but a few psi are required before vapour can vent to the exterior (reduces fuel loss)].
>Photo 5 Air extraction system at base of the rear windscreen to vent cabin air to this low pressure zone of the exterior thereby avoiding “steaming up”, improving cabin ventilation (if air cannot escape fresh air will not enter, even with a fan), and allowing driving with the windows closed under normal conditions.
Liquid drains from this area (spilt fuel and water). The plastic tubing has not yet been fitted.
Reinforcement of the body around the gas struts (to avoid stress crazing).
Reinforcement of the body using aluminium plates around the hinge plates (to avoid stress crazing).
I spent over 4000 hours building the car.
The Marcos factory workshop manager came to see my car and said that he had never seen a Marcos built to such a high standard...
I have over 100 photographs of the build process and a lot more information. The original receipts, build notes and of course stamped chassis plate are all included to enable the car to be registered.
Viewing is highly recommended and welcomed. Easyjet offer cheap flights to Lyon. I am able to deliver the kit to you anywhere in Europe.
The kit is complete (there are even some duplicate parts) and everything required to build a new Mantula is included except engine, gearbox, final drive (differential) unit and wheels.

NAME : Jim Carpenter Contact : Location : USA Telephone : 360 790 8219 This is a one of a kind Marcos Cosworth race car. This machine is fresh from Europe where it participated in several hillclimb and rally racing events. It was built as a race car by MSE, an engineering company in Belgium and is the only one ever produced by Marcos with a Ford Cosworth 4-cylinder turbo powerplant engine. Incredibly, the engine creates over 400hp with only 2.2 liters. All of the other Marcos race cars produced have small-block Chevrolet engines. With the lightweight front end (thanks to the smaller engine), this car has phenomenal performance. The gearbox is a robust 5-speed unit that shifts easily. All of the racing for this example took place in Europe with a 2004 Touring Car series whre it placed 3rd for the year behind Porsche 993. It was sold 2 years ago to a driver from Spain. He then proceeded to race the car in a Spanish hill climb event where it took first in its class. Included with this car is a big spares package consisting of extra body panels, spare parts, and wheels. This car is a unique, great looking, turn key race car with spares to boot – all available for less than most cars of it's class. Everything is in working order and it needs nothing but a new, caring owner for its next set of adventures I am asking $95,000 and I am open to offers or a combination of cash and other cars Placed : May 2010

All work is top quality. It comes with a lot of unfitted parts ie. harnesses and dash facia panels.
