Thanks Andy,
I'd had that thought at the back of my mind ever since I saw the SLR for sale advert. Good info.

Regards

Very much agree with thoughts on price. flag

Not sure what they sell for presently but I think an F40 would be a much better way of spending that amount of money. spend

Or a 911 RS, Carrera GT, McLaren SLR etc etc...

If I was buying something from that era I would be more tempted by an XK150, Healey or E Type.

Regards,

Robert,
I very much agree with your last sentence and while I don't want to stir things up here becuase veiws on issues like this are essentially personal, perhaps the following actual example might be of interest.

Tomorrow, a mate and I aee going to have a look at a Porsche 356 coupe which he is thinking of acquiring It is, in those well- loved words, 'a minter' ( I've seen it already,) and is available for an amount which is very considerably less than SLR4 and has been looked after rather than restored

I accept that there can be no 'like for like' comparison here not least because of the rarity value of the SLR and the significance of the SLR in Morgan history. As a couple of people have said, the market will decide but I really do wonder whether the very large price differential is justified all the same.

Regards

GLLHG,

Thanks.

That sounds like an interesting purchase.

I think the 356 is a fabulous looking car - hope it works out well tomorrow. flag

Would be interested to hear how things go.

Robert,
Yes, if its all kosher it should be excel1ent. This is a 1963 356C,T-6. it has the SC engine, 4-wheel disc brakes, and 12-volt electric system. if it matches up on the details, it should be the dogs'

Cheers

I love the 356 in pretty much all its forms; although the Speedster and the Carrera are the pinnacle for me.

I have vague memories of a lot of Lawrencetune TRs at the time including some with streamlined bodywork. But its a long time ago and my memory disappeared along with my hair and waistline.

I know who to too, big collector!!! All I'm saying is that he is in the Power Torque Morgan Challenge so that narrows it down for you.
