Shirley Shirley Mk2

1959 to 1960 

The Shirley Mk2 was a development of the Mk1, the redesign most prominent in the nose section. Like a lot of specials of this era the Shirley was based around Ford Popular (upright) models which provided the chassis and mechanical components. 

The Shirley Mk2 was available as a 2 or 4 seater (bodywork simply cut out of the rear deck to accomodate the extra 2 seats) and also with a hardtop (extra 35 GBP) and full opening doors. 

The 1172cc Ford sidevalve was the engine of choice (as it came with the donor) Wheelbase was 7' 10" with a 4' track for the 4 seater and 7' 6" for the 2 seater. Bodyshell prices were around 90 GBP. The sale of Shirley bodyshells seemed to fizzle out around 1960.
