Just two owners from new; 15,050 miles; great spec; huge service
history - much of it factory; lots to like
This impressive two-owner Plus 8 was delivered in the classic livery of Connaught Green with Stone upholstery piped green. Morgan's most popular combination. Its first owner also used his pen freely to tick lots of option boxes, as shown on the original factory order form, and more extras have been added since.
Supplied through SGT in Taplow, Berkshire, it was first registered on 4th September 1999. Its first owner was to keep it until 2016, by which time it had only covered 7,800 miles.
Extras ordered from the factory included chrome wire wheels, a walnut dashboard, extra tread rubbers on the wings, radio prep, leather upholstery, sports seats, carpeting to the chassis rail, full rustproofing; taller four-seater screen, black mohair hood and tonneau and of course door handles!! The original bill of sale shows that it cost £38,000.
SGT cared for the car for the first few years, Mole Valley Morgan selling the car to its new owner in 2016 for £40,465.
Mole valley undertook its next service later that year (£1,441), subsequent care being undertaken by Mark Baldwin's team at the factory in Malvern.
They saw it in 2018 by which time the mileage had increased to just 10,025, in 2019 at 12,017 miles, in 2020 at 13,613 miles and shortly after for a set of new chrome wires (£4,438). An overheating issue was sorted in December 2021 (£1,362), its most recently recorded service taking place at 13,907 miles in May 2021, just 1,150 miles ago.
Other subsequent additions to the car include a leather bonnet strap, mesh grille insert, wood-rim steering wheel, sidescreen bag (blue) and a luggage carrier. The headlights have anti-dazzle deflectors which suggest some Continental motoring, a task for which the car would be eminently suitable.
With it's low-owner, low-mileage status, this well-specc'd Plus 8 offers exceptional value. It's recent extensive servicing back in the hands of the factory and it's fresh wires only enhance it's appeal.
