Rod recently mentioned his Marcos on Johnnie Walker's Sounds of the 70s. Sadly, his lasting memory was of the speakers not being secured and hitting the windscreen when he braked.

Then he moved on to a Lamborghini.

That was the Adams Probe 16, built by ex-Marcos designers, the Adams brothers.

I was fortunate enough to own the last GT to be assembled before the factory closed in 1972.

My car was the last of the 12 that used remaining supply of Triumph 6 cylinder motors.

These were taken in 2004, shortly before I sold the car to a chap from Germany who exported it. I've not seen or heard about it since.

Yet another car I regret selling, especially for what I sold it for!

Long shot I realise, but any info on my late brothers Marcos GT greatly received. It was a steel chassis Ford V6,so I'm guessing H or J plate. The picture was taken in Broadstairs,Kent. He had to sell due to fuel price hikes /Suez crisis around 1973.

Martyn-123 is yours that spec with Triumph Spitfire bonnet locks ?

Hi,

Yes a 3.0V6 version, very little history other than sat unused for 30 years
