<STRONG>1993 Morgan Plus 8</STRONG><BR><BR><EM>A lovely Plus 8 with 44,500 miles on the clock; fresh MOT; handsome spec in black with black leather; lots of nice history; a very smart example<BR><BR></EM><SPAN style='FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: "Arial",sans-serif; COLOR: black'>Premiered at the 1968 London Motor Show, the Plus 8 was developed by race engineer Maurice Owen and Peter Morgan in the small development shop at the back of the factory in Malvern.<BR><BR></SPAN><SPAN style='FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: "Arial",sans-serif; COLOR: black'>Handbuilt in familiar Morgan fashion on a strengthened version of the Plus 4 chassis with aluminium over ash frame coachwork, its swooping bodywork looked as traditional as ever but gave no clues to the new model's extraordinary performance. Weighing&nbsp;less than&nbsp;1,000kg and with some 160bhp and 190lb/ft of torque on tap, the Plus 8 immediately became Britain’s fastest-accelerating production car, sprinting to 60mph in a shade over 6 seconds with a top speed of 125mph.<BR><BR></SPAN><SPAN style='FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: "Arial",sans-serif; COLOR: black'>Constantly improved over the years, it received the Rover LT77 5-speed all-synchromesh manual gearbox in 1977 and in 1983 gained Bosch L-Jetronic fuel-injection which raised power to 190bhp and made it quicker to 80mph than the contemporary Porsche 911 Turbo. Things got even better in 1990 when the engine grew to a 3.9-litre with added torque. Combining Vintage-era charm with Cobra-like grunt, it was in such high demand that at one point the waiting list was over six years long.<BR><BR></SPAN><SPAN style='FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: "Arial",sans-serif; COLOR: black'>This most attractive black on black Plus 8 was delivered as a new car through Libra Motive in 1993 – according to the Chassis Record on file. The owner clearly liked black, as not only was the car painted black, it had black leather and black Rivenhood, tonneau and sidescreens, head rests and&nbsp;a galvanised chassis&nbsp;as well as&nbsp;the charming listed option of door handles!<BR><BR></SPAN><SPAN style='FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: "Arial",sans-serif; COLOR: black'>The sale of this car happened not long after the infamous Sir John Harvey Jones visit to the factory in 1991, so premiums were to be had on a new car. Its first owner kept it for six months, its second owner for 18 months and its third for about three years….the car being acquired by our vendor back in 1998 from Lifes Motors in Southport with 16,300 miles on the clock.<BR><BR></SPAN><SPAN style='FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: "Arial",sans-serif; COLOR: black'>Although there is no mention of it on the build record, by now it was sporting a walnut dashboard, Cibie spot lamps, a stainless luggage carrier and Union Jack badges, all equipment still with the car today.<BR><BR></SPAN><SPAN style='FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: "Arial",sans-serif; COLOR: black'>The accompanying service book shows seven stamps to 16,465 miles, its current owner then&nbsp;mostly using A D Garages in Garstang for its regular servicing according to the multiple invoices on file. There are a further 18 of these (25 services in total), the 2016 invoice indicating a mileage of 42,962 miles at this time.<BR><BR></SPAN><SPAN style='FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: "Arial",sans-serif; COLOR: black'>Further to this, there are 25 old MOTs on file, showing that over the last few years its mileage has been minimal – a house move dictating its reluctant sale. It was given a fresh MOT just before the sale which expires in May 2022 with no advisories, a job which entailed freeing off the rear brakes and fitting new shoes – all sorted.<BR><BR>We have spotted the usual cracks around the headlight pods - a perennial issue with the model, but the car remains presentable.<BR><BR></SPAN><SPAN style='FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: "Arial",sans-serif; COLOR: black'>This is a particularly attractive Plus 8 which still has under 45,000 miles on the clock. It has been well serviced throughout its life, well cared for and driven some 100 miles to the sale. <BR><BR></SPAN><SPAN style='FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: "Arial",sans-serif; COLOR: black'><EM>For more information – contact matthew.parkin@brightwells.com<o:p></o:p></EM></SPAN> -Sale Date: 19/06/2021 10:00:00 -Sale Name: Classic Cars & Motorcycles Auction -Sale Location: Easters Court, Mill Street, Leominster, Herefordshire, HR6 0DE

<STRONG>1949 Bristol 400<BR></STRONG><BR><EM>Only 4,500 miles on rebuilt engine; current owner&nbsp;10 years;&nbsp;various useful upgrades including overdrive gearbox,&nbsp;electronic ignition,&nbsp;servo brakes; maintained regardless of cost; a really lovely example all round<BR><BR></EM><SPAN lang=EN-GB> <P dir=ltr align=left>Considering that only around 400 Bristol 400s were ever made, mostly for the export market, and that there are currently&nbsp;perhaps fewer&nbsp;than 50 still UK registered today, it is quite remarkable that Brightwells have successfully sold 10 of them over the last 15 years, including two in our last sale only a few weeks ago. We are thus well placed to know a good one from a bad one and we can confidently say that this particular example is right up there among the best ones we have seen. <BR> <P dir=ltr align=left>Dating from 1949, not much is known about the early history of the car but documents on file suggest that it formerly bore the Bristol-issue number plate, LHY 376, and was resident in Northumberland by 1974. At some point thereafter it made its way to Belgium where it reputedly spent some time as part of a museum collection and where, in 2011, it was treated to a rebuilt engine, a replacement cylinder head and a brake overhaul at a cost of 15,577 Euros, as documented in photos and invoices on file, the engine currently fitted&nbsp;being the later, more powerful&nbsp;85C type rather than the original 85A. <BR> <P dir=ltr align=left>The following year it was brought back to England by respected Bristol aficionado and dealer, Alastair Hacking, who immediately sent it to marque specialist Spencer Lane Jones for a thorough check-over and to address any faults. As it turned out, the car was in remarkably good condition and needed very little attention, as confirmed in a detailed three-page report on file. A new set of tyres were fitted, some repairs made to the brakes and the front suspension plus a couple of other minor jobs at a cost of £1,781. <BR> <P dir=ltr align=left>Our vendor acquired the car from Hacking in July 2012 and sent it back to SLJ for some further improvements including getting the brakes uprated with servo assistance, a new master cylinder, detailing of the engine bay, fuel pump rebuild, new engine mounts, attention to the charging system, repairs to the exhaust, chassis cleaned and painted and a new Perspex rear windscreen, the cost for this lot coming to £4,385.<BR> <P dir=ltr align=left>During his 10-year ownership the car has continued to be maintained regardless of cost, the bulk of the servicing being carried out by licenced aero-engineer Richard Kimberley of Essex with numerous invoices to document the work done. This has included the fitment of overdrive on top gear for more relaxed high speed cruising, Aldon electronic ignition, spin-off oil filter conversion, carburettors overhauled, new leather gaiters to the front suspension springs, regular servicing plus much else besides.<BR> <P dir=ltr align=left>As you can see in the photos, the car is in lovely condition throughout and we are told that it has only done around 4,500 miles since the 2011 engine rebuild. Starting promptly and running beautifully as we have moved it around on site, with good 50psi oil pressure, it also has a 2015 valuation letter from Bristol specialist Andrew Blow stating that it had an insurance value of £75,000 – we told you it was a good one! <BR> <P dir=ltr align=left>On offer here at a fraction of that amount, it also comes with a technical guide to the overdrive gearbox and a copy of an original Bristol 400 maintenance manual. What more could you want? <BR> <P dir=ltr align=left><EM>For more information contact James on 07970 309907 or email </EM></SPAN><A><FONT size=3 face=Calibri><FONT size=3 face=Calibri><SPAN lang=EN-GB><EM>james.dennison@brightwells.com</EM></FONT></FONT></SPAN></A> -Sale Date: 19/06/2021 10:00:00 -Sale Name: Classic Cars & Motorcycles Auction -Sale Location: Easters Court, Mill Street, Leominster, Herefordshire, HR6 0DE
