"Like the lobby furniture in a cheap '90s office building" is exactly right! It reminds me of that 90's plastic laminate color found in doctor's offices~

Great Post, that one's easy smiley Mark Two Ford Econoboxes (since we can't use their real name). With them all being two doors and looking like bare, fresh from the body shop, shells I would speculate it might have been taken somewhere like Ford AVO and they're destined for Motorsport purposes ...

I just did a search for Ford escrot shells (not same spelling obvs).

I remember seeing an Irish shop that had racks and racks of shells, ready to be turned into forest missiles.  It seems like any time you see someone with a nice MkII, it's Irish.

I wonder if the availability of new shells will make the originals cheaper, or more expensive.

 

These are both new cars!

 

About $150k US for a full mad spec MkII with Millington Diamond engine, sequential gearbox, etc.  Which isn't bad considering that a gennie MkII built to the same spec might be worth almost double that.

 

I remember when Motorsport Tools started making MkII shells, they were advertised as £7000 on their website. I was deeply considering it (figured probably another $4000 in shipping expense) BUT.  To build a kit car and register in the US would generally require an engine from the model year you were claiming the "kit car" to be, and gosh Cosworth BDAs are thin on the ground here.

1975 Jameson Merlin - 27 liters / 1760 hp,  and comfortably did 186 mph right after completion. (I'm thinking it didn't have a choice with that hp) Why it looks like this is left to the historians.

Edit: I mean, look at it. It's like an automotive version of Yacht Rock.
