The Shirley Mk1 was a kit car produced between 1958 and 1959.

The Mk1 was the first bodyshell to have the Shirley name. Like a lot of specials of this era, the Shirley was based around Ford Popular models which provided the chassis and mechanical components.  

The Shirley Mk1 was available as a 2-seat open top tourer with full opening doors and elegant bodywork giving an air of aerodynamics. 

The 1172cc Ford side-valve was the engine of choice (as it came with the donor). The Wheelbase was 7' 6" with a 4' track. Bodyshell prices were around £90.
