Lot 2: 1981 Morgan Plus 8 Chassis – Engine – Body R8947 - .Now more than a century old, the Morgan Motor Company was formed by H.F.S. Morgan in 1909 with the construction of the first Morgan motor car. Hand built on the simple tubular chassis with a Peugeot 7hp vee-twin engine, the power-to-weight of the Morgan Runabout three-wheeler proved to be exceptional. Attributes of the marque that continues through to the present day. Morgan released its first four-wheel vehicle in 1936 while continuing with three-wheel production until before the Second World War. Following hostilities Morgan used Standard mechanicals including the Triumph TR four-cylinder engine through to the release of the Plus 8 in 1966. Using the Rover 3.5 litre all-alloy V8 engine, the Morgan Plus 8 proved to be highly popular with waiting lists for new cars quickly extending from months to years. The last Morgan Plus 8 was produced in 2004 and was followed by the traditional roadster style bodywork, but fitted with Ford Duratec engines. BMW V8 powered cars followed. The Morgan Motor Company with its 160 employees currently produces in excess of 1,300 cars a year at Malvern, Worcestershire in the traditional handmade fashion. The sports car styling has altered very little over the decades and each example is unmistakeably a Morgan. Today the waiting list for a new Morgan is approximately six months. This 1981 Morgan Plus 8 is finished in Royal Ivory with Connaught Green guards and is fitted with the alloy Rover V8 in its 3.8 litre guise driving through a Rover five-speed gearbox. It is believed to have been sold new in Japan to a member of the Australian Diplomatic Corps and after 13 years it was shipped to Australia. During 2006 and 2007 the car received a body off rebuild that included a paint refinish, new upholstery and wet weather gear. The mechanicals were also attended to and it was fitted with adjustable shock absorbers all round. Despite being extensively used and enjoyed by its owner, including a trip around Australia, the car is also a concourse winner and has been voted the prettiest Morgan Plus 8 in Australia by other marque owners. This car offers traditional Morgan ownership along with effortless touring. Certainly a car to be used and enjoyed.
