Midas Bronze- 1980

Midas Bronze- 1980

In 1965, Marcos Cars Ltd. produced a Mini-Marcos coupe with Mini running gear and a fiberglass body and monocoque. It was based on a design by Paul Emery and was sold as a kit. Although they shipped cars to the United States, they could not be sold for street use due to new emission laws. Marcos folded in 1971 but former Jaguar engineer Harold Dermott took over production of the Mini-Marcos in 1975. The company designed a new Mini-based coupe – the Midas Bronze. This is an exceptional vehicle for a kit-car. The fiberglass is of the highest quality and it houses a Mini front subframe, a steel rear beam axle and a BMC engine. The interior trim is comparable to most mass-produced cars in its price range. Many consider it a fabulous little car with no close rival. Midas suffered a factory fire in 1989 and was forced to liquidate.
