2002 Morgan Plus 8

From a deceased estate. 1 owner and just 8,032 miles covered in this super 3.9 V8, heating and stereo system fitted

Amendment - Bidders please note, This car did start, run and drive when it arrived and was moved for photos/video but now it will only turn and not fire - we believe the fuel pump fuse/relay has failed.

Coming to us, rather sadly via a deceased estate this Morgan has been in the hands of just one owner and covered just 8,032 miles from new, spending much of its life tucked up in storage.

Dating from Janaury 1st, 2002 it boasts the powerful and popular 3.9 Rover V8 mated to 5-speed manual transmission and is finished in cream with brown hood, matching light brown leather interior piped cream with walnut dash, stereo and heating.

With so few miles covered and much of its life spent in storage, its unsurprising to see but a few stamps in the combined owners manual/service book, two by Morgan at 1,265 miles in May 2002 and 2,725 miles in August 2003 then the last by JM Auto Repairs Ltd of Swansea at 5,656 miles in July 2010. We also have 4 old MOTs showing little mileage was covered between tests and the current clean MOT which runs until September 2021.  There is also an old V5, Deposit confirmation letter from the initial order and a service invoice dating from May 2002 for £318.

The car looks the part sat on its wire wheels with big bore twin pipes poking out the back producing that unmistakeable V8 rumble and the famous, classicaly elegant lines of old.  An unusual opportunity to acquire what is almost, an "as new" Morgan Plus 8 in classic colours without the 'new car premium' and traditionally long Morgan lead time at an enticing estimate.
