1971 Morgan Plus 8

With One Family From New


Amazingly this early Plus 8 was in the ownership of one family for 47 years, with a no-expense spared restoration recently conducted to a very high standard. The restoration was extensive and started with the car being stripped down to the bare chassis with all metalwork was media-blasted and powder coated. The ash frame was restored and minor sections replaced where required. The front and rear wings were have been replaced with beautifully hand-formed light weight aluminium units, manufactured by specialist Techniques. The Morgan was then reassembled with re-conditioned or replacement components as appropriate, such as petrol tank top (with new fuel lines), a new larger and more efficient aluminium radiator, braided oil cooler pipes, new Wilwood brake calipers and restored rear brake drums. The electrics have been completely renewed with a new Morgan loom, and an engine immobiliser with a fuel cut-off switch behind the seats. The interior of the car has been completely re-trimmed by a renowned classic/vintage car specialist with top quality carpets, door trim and a restored leather-covered dashboard. The seats were rebuilt and upholstered using top quality leather from the Netherlands and finished with red piping. A new red Mohair soft-top was fabricated also with a matching spare wheel cover. The car has the original Morgan Motor Company alloy wheels, refurbished with new tyres fitted all round. We understand the engine has had a full service and runs smoothly and cleanly.
The Plus 8 is finished beautifully and drives extremely nicely. Finished in its original Ivory White with a Wine red leather interior, and with 56,000 miles recorded, this is by far one of the nicest Morgans we have seen in a long time.
