Stanley is the 2003 4/4 I have owned for 11 years and c40k miles. Though lacking in a few louvres, it makes up for it with a bog-standard black top 1.8 Zetec engine, that has shown a clean pair of heels to more than one TM member.

"Poverty model!!!" - Who needs exterior door handles anyway?

budster

Ah! So now we know the secret: no louvres and no door handles = improved aerodynamics wink

The standard model has the aerodynamics of a brick, Stanley has the aerodynamics of a brick with round corners.


Oh dear! What have I started? hide

Two options to reduce drag.........
Less (h) air resistance bu shaving your head or aearing a swimming cap.
Catch a shark and use the skin as a cover ( no dolphins will be harmed by using sharkskin)
hide
A messy option is to smear eel slime over the car..... shocked2

Narrow bodied 4/4 = reduced frontal area = drive wink

When I was with Jays, we measured the comparative width of the tubs (excluding the wings).
My 4/4 is 2" narrower than his Mk2 Roadster, when measured at the rear of the doors.

This also has the added advantage of having to sit very close to tlLB

If you fit that badge to the front of your Morgan, you will lose approximately 0.1mph in top speed. Is it worth it?
