The company "famous" for building cars in the 60's (and 70's?) with wooden chassis were Marcos. But I have never heard on one with an A Series engine - they tended to use Ford or Volvo as I remember.

Cheers, Robin

Thanks for your reply.

A business partner of mine has the vehicle , together with the moulds and we are just trying to piece together the info we have.

We were originally told it was a Boxer but has Altea on Dash.

Understand originally a two man company which folded due to lack of funds after building a few cars which were raced at Brands
