In 1964 the car became available as the 1800S with a cut off, square back (called a ‘Manx tail’ after the similarly tailless breed of cat) and round rear light clusters from the Ford Cortina. After a stop in production in 1965, under Martin Lilley’s new ownership the car reappeared in 1966 as the longer MkIV.[3] The MkIV also featured better trim and a larger fuel tank.[5]

Approximately 300 cars were built (estimated to be 60 of the Series III, 30 of the Series III 1800, 128 of the 1800S and 78 of the MkIV) before being replaced by the Vixen.[3]
