To be honest it doesn't matter to me what the answer is as I was simply providing what I thought was some useful information based upon my chassis number to add to the debate.

Robert


I think that about 100 chassis numbers weren't actually issued. I haven't heard of an Aero with a chassis number from 500 through to 599.

The Aeromaxs have a subdivision of the Morgan chassis numbers - this includes the word Aeromax and also clearly states the production number from 1-100.

I believe, iirc, the original idea was to cull a block of 100 numbers from the Aero 8 chassis number run to use for the Aeromaxs; however, they seem to have deviated from this idea with what I mentioned above.

I have to speak with the factory on Monday, so I'll ask the question.

That makes sense.

Can we bring this list of Aero chassis numbers up to date with the newest models purchased. As Shooter has said, I don't believe the 500-series of chassis numbers was used, and we certainly don't have a 5-series chassis on the TM list. read

Looks like this one may need an answer from the factory. Can we resolve this for Simon

June issue of Octane states "Morgan expecting to build its 1000th example in the next few months."

Marketing license I wonder? If it is the case it does mean that one version of the aero will be far rarer than the others. Not sure which though. innocent

No probelm Jappo - Our little banter has certainly started some thinking of the number of Aeros acturally made. innocent

Dear friends,
You may know already that the production of the Aero is or about to be stopped very soon.

Does anybody know how many cars were produced ?

Looking forward to reading you on that subject.

Kindest regards

JP

Hello All

In the TM list there are also no Aeros in the 200s. Just coincidence?

Cheers

Anyone know where I can get the different car dimensions from...I have a seriously short garage and I think the S3 onwards might be a little bit longer after the front end re-design ?

Hi All,

My first post. Just thinking if I was to get a Morgan it would be and Aero of some type.

BUT, can you have then with a manual Beemer box or can an existing one easily be converted away from the (I think standard fit Beemer 6spd Auto). Not a fan of anything changing guy but me.
