....and I've just noticed that the price has been dropped 4k from when I looked at it.
Great value.

Was at Williams last week. and she is beautiful.

Oh yes built by the Master! Not only is the front sorted but the rear suspension is trick as well no cart springs!

She also has provision for a removable roll bar and it just so happens I have a unused competition roll bar to fit right in going cheap I was going to adapt it for my Sport but haven't!

I looked at it but didn't like the damaged car concept and Williams offered me a rubbish trade in.

I also worried about residual value when I sold it.

Thats my view. If Williams are having difficulty selling it, imagine how difficult it would be for some one like me. grin2 Anyone want to buy a old catd car? gloomy on the other hand if it was a 'car for life' then it wouldn't matter.. thinking

It is a lovely car. love I may have to go and take a look.

To put another slant on this damaged car concept..

Would any one bat an eye if She was 'fully renovated'.
IE. New chassis as the old one was rotten, Front suspension ladder, replaced rotten timber new alloy wings, body panels, rebuilt wheels, paint, other worn out parts..
What is the difference if parts are damaged or rotten as long as they are replaced, Morgans are designed to be rebuilt that's why they are a true eco car.

Is TOK on the original chassis body work wheels or is she a renovation/recreation of the original?
I would not stop to think twice to buy her, race, rally if i had that sort of money!!

How many old Morgans have been totally rebuilt/restored, is this why so many old Morgans survive because all the parts are replaceable in a different way from say a modern rot box with no chassis?

Is it Cat D/C?

A damaged car will always have a story no matter how well the repair work was carried out.

It says in the description: 'bought it as a cat D insurance write off as it had a small front end knock'.
