1977 Morgan Plus 8
Click to enlarge
In a world of sensational Morgans, this must be close to the top of the list.......
ONE OWNER SINCE NEW.......owned by serious collector, experienced owner/driver, and maintained at a very high level.
For much of that time, was used as a daily driver and runs and drives better than new. 10,000 miles ago, the original 3.5 liter Rover all alloy engine was replaced with a similar unit but of 4.6 liters (and rebuilt/prepared by a top professional in the field). Needless to say, this is one very fast car. Especially due to its light weight all aluminum body.
Engine is fitted with an Offenhauser manifold and Weber 4 bbl carb. Coupled to a five speed transmission. Of the MANY updates and improvements, all make for a far better car. Gemmer steering, dual master cylinder, stainless steel exhaust, oversize disc brakes, negative camber front end with Koni shocks, outboard rear shock system, IF one knows Morgans....these are some of the best items than can be fitted to a Morgan.
For use, comfort and enjoyment, has a folding windshield, Brooklands racing screens, newish leather upholstery, has been converted to wide chrome wire wheels (with new high speed Michelins) AND comes with its original alloy wheels, two tops (one black, one brown), two tonneaus in the same colors, luggage rack, tilting adjustable seats, Kenwood stereo, and ON AND ON AND ON.
Clearly, no expense was spared on this car over its over forty year history (all with the same loving owner). And the result is a classic Morgan than can be driven as an alternative to a contemporary car.
As one who has continuously owned Morgans for 44 years, have never seen a Morgan quite like this car. Fast, reliable, and with classic lines that can't be duplicated by any modern car.
