Yep it’s not Marks car but very similar and it’s not Hills car unless it was modified later in life. If some has an article on a Speedwell car in Autocar sometime in ‘66 it would help I.D. the car.

Hum, I have seen that pic before, and has already been said the article in on the main MK1 site.

TBH, as it is July 66 publication, I had always assumed that it was probably my car, which was bought by Speedwell in early 66 which had been slightly rejigged with the addition of the Restalls, a more dished steering wheel & a PH pedal. It certainly went through a number of changes while it was owned by Speedwell, there are a number of differences I have spotted between the Motorsport & Speedwell pictures. However, spotting the Small circle under the speedo does make me wonder (a bit). I may try & get any other photos from the shoot, which would presumably tell us more.

Looking at the dash liner it looks to be a Green or Grey car. I wonder is it this Speedwell car that JD classics sold a few years ago.

The door check strap and fixing look rather dark for a green or grey car.

Twist pile carpet is a bit too early for Mark's car.
