A very original Tony Marsh trials special

This car is one of three built some time in the 1950's by Dellow's unofficial works driver and six times British Hill Climb champion Tony Marsh . It has a tube space frame chassis and a light aluminium body which looks very typical of the period (think early Lotus!). It is powered by a Ford Ten sidevalve engine and what I believe is a Morris gearbox. It is riding on 17" Ford wheels which give it the ground clearance necessary for Trials work. I am no expert on this activity but a quick look at the Association of Classic Trials Clubs website at
www.actc.org.uk/index.htm will tell you a lot about the sport if you are not already involved. The very informative site lists 35 events this year and as far as I can see this car falls into Class 8 "Non Production Cars".
To help you get in the mood the car comes with a most evocative video
made up of films of some of the activities of the Hagley & District Light Car Club during the 1950's, '60's and '70's which includes shots of Tony Marsh driving this car as well as many other facinating amateur motor sport events of the period - the video is a real gem for enthusiasts. This Marsh Special looks to me looks like a lot of historical motoring fun for not very much money!
