I have had the "pleasure" ???? of driving one of these in it's proper home, i.e. across farm land and ploughed fields and I have to say it was awful.
I can't imagine why anyone would spend a lot of money on one then drive it on the road ,however I guess it's a case of what ever floats your boat!!

I quite enjoy not having my kidneys displaced in one - It could always be that we have become more discerning after all an all weather Morganista is hardly what I would term "soft".

Admittedly, my IIa was an awful lot better with 4 paving slabs in the back, it gave the suspension something to do. And it was best not to try to do more than 45mph.

I drove one many years ago when I spent a week helping a friend set up his prawn fishing business on the West Coast of Scotland. I seem to remember being able to turn the steering wheel 90 degrees either way with it having no appreciable effect on the front wheels. Maybe it was just that one.

+1.

A Series IIa was my daily driver for a couple of years in the eighties, one of the most fun cars I've ever had and one I regret having to sell.

Nearly bought my first IIa back soon after I bought the first Morgan. However, while the chassis was the same the body had been replaced with a SIII. Just wasn't the same...
