Autobodies 2


Autobodies started producing body shells for the 7`6" Ford Pop chassis in 1958. Their first two were identical two seater coupe's but with a different grill. The Mk1 having a Jaguar C type grill while the Mk2 had more of an E type style grill with the headlamps on the front of the wings.

Then in 1960 Autobodies announced their last body shell, the Autobee Pacemaker. This had more modern, but radical styling and was their attempt at a four seater. Again designed to fit the Ford chassis it is thought that about thirty were built in the two years it was available.
