CAR Magazine's "Marauder" Marina Estate

Post by locost_bryan » Wed Oct 08, 2014 3:16 am

Been reading a fascinating 8-page writeup of CAR magazine's Marina Estate project. CAR did one estate using mostly ST bolt-on parts, and their own body kit. BL then did another, as an upmarket "shooting brake" in the Van den Plas mould (looks lovely).

Wonder if either of these cars survive, or if CAR's body kit ever made it to market?

No, neither still exist although one was reported to still be about into the 1990's...
