Dutch Mini Marcos looking for new owner - and engine

Some cars are turned into miniatures, but it can be the other 'round also. Take Marcel van Eenennaam's Mini Marcos, which was build up with the famous Corgi Mini Marcos model in mind using a paint colour that the Americans call 'Candy Apple Red', white striping along the sills, head lamp covers and eight-spoke alloys in silver.

The car came by on these pages before when spotted at the 2016 IMM (click here and scroll down). It showed an intriguing bonnet bulge at the time, giving breathing space to a chunky twin Weber set-up to fuel a 7-port head. However, that set-up is gone now and Marcel is planning to sell the car sans engine. He is working on a lovely new project and wrote to me: "I am selling it since I simply have no time for it within the next year or so. But if it won't get sold, I'll store it and keep it." Do you have a spare engine and like the car? Then see its ad here...

This is a smart looking Mini Marcos Mk4. It's empty behind that big bonnet bulge though

Correctly registered as a Mini Marcos GT and on Dutch plates, the car is now for sale

If Marcel's Mini Marcos rings a bell, it may well be because of this Corgi model!
