I’m reluctantly selling my Marcos TS250. Far too many toys and projects and I’ve been “advised” the number count has to go down!

I’m advertising the Marcos and my factory prototype Marlin Hunter. The one that goes will be the first one that sells. I’ll keep the other.

This Marcos is extremely rare, only 6 made I believe and I think only four are still in the country. So, if you hanker after a TS250 I doubt you will see another for a long time! This one is the “Green One”.

I guess if you are looking at this ad you probably know the history of the marque and this car. But if not, the TS250 was launched by the last incarnation of Marcos as a “user friendly” sports car. More information can be found at - details above.

I bought it just because I thought it was beautiful.
I bought it as a “garage find” in 2019. It had been off the road since 2014 Since then I’ve changed the fuel pump, filters and some of the fuel lines (the reason it was consigned to the garage). Overhauled the brake calipers, new master cylinder, handbrake cables. I’ve gone through all the earths and all the electrics work. The aircon doesn’t blow cold but guess one can forgive that given it’s been sleeping since 2014.

The car now runs really well, engine and gearbox are as sweet as anything. There are no knocks or graunches from the suspension.

The car has done just under 19000 miles which is supported by the online MoT history. To finish it off it needs new tyres, although lots of tread the tyres are old and flat spotted from when it was standing. Structurally the chassis is in good condition, had a bit of surface rust here and there which I treated but absolutely solid. The car could be MoTed as is but I think it would be shame not to sort out the scrapes on the paint and the stone chips. The wheels also have a fair amount of curbing, but perfectly restorable.

Difficult one to price so I’ve advertised it as offers in excess of £10,000. If it floats your boat I doubt there will be another one along anytime soon. If it’s the one I end up keeping I’ll put it in with a classic car restorer to sort out the paint, etc and finish the recommissioning.
