Hi Richard,

So nice to hear from you again!  It's been quite awhile, hasn't it?

I will forward details to Craig as you suggest.  

My hope is to find an interesting Mk1 that is race-prepared, or (even preferably) a dual-use car that is also road registered.  Ideally a car with early competition history may turn up, but I'm open to all possibilities.

I recently joined Facebook and did indeed join the Marcos Mini group there a few days ago.   Should I post something there as well?

Best,
Andy

Hi Andy,
Make sure that Craig Smith has the details for the Winter Magazine ( editor@minimarcos.org ).
Are you in Marcos Mini on Facebook?
Richard

I'm actively looking for an early Mini Marcos to purchase.

I hope to return to historic racing after many years away, and a Mini Marcos, or (alternately) a plywood early Marcos are of special interest. áFully-built cars are preferred although a project would certainly get my attention as well.

Some of you may remember me as a prior owner of "Elmo", chassis #7073, the ex-Elmhorn/Troberg car from Sweden:

Please feel free to contact me through this website. áThank you! áI look forward to your reply.

Best regards,

I would guess the one nearest the column might be hazard warning light switch, I've seen one that looks like that it has a light in the end and it pulls out to activate. Something like this https://www.sheridanmarine.com/product/chrome-pushpull-switch-led. The other could be choke.

This is the dashboard I got in my Mini Marcos.
The picture is from a MM advertisenent about 1967-68.
I have the ignition key and the long toggle switch, but what are the two other black knobs for and from what car do they come from? It is definetly not from a Mini.

After several years of searching I found and was able to buy a former racie Mini Marcos that was never raced.
The car is a mk 2/3 from 67/68 and was standing in a garage after a tragic death of Mr Salomonsson who started a Mini Marcos factory up in the north of Sweden 1967. He managed to import and build 4 cars before he died in a sea accident.

This car was after some years bought by the former racing driver Johnny Lundberger, he was one of the two Targa Florio drivers 1967, and the car was built to beat the world record of the flying kilometer for 750 cc cars. The engine is a really special 970 Cooper S with smaller bore and a aluminium cylinder head.
Sad or good for me the transporting vehicle broke and the E6 road in the south west of Sweden opened up for traffic and the car was stuffed away.

The car will get a 1493 cc Cooper S engine with Salisbury diff as soon as I have gone through all the brakes, bearings and clutch. I will also put in a new old style Cooper S wire loom. Nothing has been used so mostly changing some rubberseals and some derust and paintjob. The old BRG paint will be left. The car has a real roll cage and the  original seats and wood dash.
