Restorations ...

At Marcos Heritage we pride ourselves in being the leading experts in Marcos restoration from the original wooden chassied cars right through to the last of the cars built. We undertake all forms of restoration large or small, and you can find a selection of our restoration work below.

1967 Marcos 1500 Wooden Chassis

This car has undergone extensive chassis work included reflooring and redecking, carried out by the owner to a very high standard and as per the original construction. We were commissioned to complete a sympathetic restoration but retaining the car's patina. This included full paint removal, fibreglass repairs and repaint in the vehicle's original colour - Marcos Artic White. The majority of the upholstery was retained but headlining and carpets were replaced. We carried out a full mechanical assessment and replacement of items where necessary.
       
       
As a result of the work and attention to detail undertaken, we sold this car on behalf of our customer for £21,000.00

 

1969 Marcos 3 Litre Wooden Chassis 

This car has recently undergone minor restoration. The car was purchased last year as a going concern in need of various works. The car had undergone various forms of restoration over the years, some of which seriously detracted from the originality of the car. The work carried out included removal of all non period appendages such as spoiler, racing mirrors, and wheels, total mechanical check over, replacing joints, bushes etc... as necessary, minor chasiss repairs to the rear bulkheads and axle aperture, and fitment of the correct rear axle. The original fitment wire wheels were reinstated, as were the correct period bumpers front and rear.
The car was returned to virtually original specification and correct detailing. This enabled us to offer the car for sale as one of the most original 3 Litre wooden chassis cars available at the time. This was reflected in the sale price obtained of £20,000.

 

1995 Mantara

The body was removed to reveal the extent of the corrosion. A new chassis was built to the original specificaions from the original jig, galvanised and powdercoated to the customer's specification. The new chassis was built up and the body refitted using all new parts where necessary. The interior was completely refurbished to include new leather upholstery,  steering wheel, a new elm dashboard complete Magnolia faced gauges, and a carpet set.  Paintwork detailing, a new hood and new wheels finished off the restoration to bring this stunning Mantara back to showroom condition.

 

3 Litre Volvo 1971

This vehicle had been off the road since 1986. The current owner having owned the car back in 1970's, bought the car and comissioned Marcos Heritage to carry out a full ground up restoration over a period of 6 months. No expense was spared, and the vehicle was transformed. Works included a new galvanised & powdercoated chassis, engine overhaul, complete re-trim, complete  mechanical overhaul, full respray, all to the original specification.
Shortly after the rebuild the car was Overall Concourse Winner at the MOC & CMI Club meeting at Shugborough.
This is arguably the best 3 Litre Volvo out there.

 

 Martin V8 Wooden Chassis

This vehicle was a unique build commissioned by one of our customers. It underwent a complete restoration including chassis repairs, upholstery and a full respray.  The car was converted to accept the 3 Litre Martin V8 Formula 1 engine, from the 1960's, resulting in a very interesting one off Marcos.

 

3 Litre Metal Chassis 1970

We carried out a complete ground up restoration on this vehicle including a new galvanised chassis, front and rear screens, new upholstery set, new bonnet, complete respray, refurbished wheels & new tyres, just to name a few of the items, restoring this vehicle to superb condition.

 

1995 LM 400

We removed the body from this LM to reveal a badly corroded chassis. A new galvanised & powdercoated chassis was fitted, the body replaced and all furniture re-fitted. We carried out a full respray including fitting Armourfend paint protection film to the bonnet. Only 14 LM 400 models were produced by Marcos, and this one owner car with new chassis and paintwork is almost certainly one of the best.

 

1988 Mantula Coupe

This Mantula went through a transformation including a new galvanised chassis, complete respray, front and rear brake upgrades, engine turned dashboard & push-button switch kit, new wiring harness, rear light conversion, full leather upholstery kit, Minilite wheels, and fitment of a 285bhp John Eales 4.6 V8 engine, making it a very desirable car.
