The Marcos 1650 followed the 1500 in 1967 being unveiled at the 1967 Racing Car Show.
The engine for these cars was developed by Chris Laurence prior to the introduction of the 1600 engine by Ford. The 1650 was a bored out 1500 cross flow engine, balanced with a different camshaft, with twin Stromberg carburettors and other modifications.
The engine developed 120 bhp as opposed to the 85 bhp of the standard Marcos 1500. The 1650 engine proved to be a little fragile but filled the gap before the advent of the 1600 crossflow engine from Ford.
