As it seems we have a few polishers amongst us that also have a fondness for shiny things how about this one ?



Or maybe this one grin2.



I really like the short screen - not too keen on the rollover bar though.

The wrapped porker not keen on at all. I would take the Mog and polish it daily.

I would prefer the Mog to have just the bonnet and cowl polished with the body and wings painted

I have seen a couple of Morgans with a different coloured cowl from the bonnet and in my opinion it doesn’t work visually. I think the cowl should be the same finish as the bonnet, whatever colour it is.

Looks like the bulkhead is also painted in a grey

I am wondering if anyone has a photo of the German registered fully polished +8 they could post?
I saw it in 2014 at Le Mans Classic, but don’t have a photo.

The bench seat would be a nice option, an easy and reversible retro fit too. My Caterham came with both seats and a bench, I prefer the look and feel of the bench.

It’s rarely mentioned and I think the lack of publicity is a missed marketing opportunity, but Morgan must be the only manufacturer who offers fully polished body as an standard optional extra. If I recal correctly, it was about £10k, which for what it is, is pretty reasonable.
Brands such as Ferrari, who offer bespoke options, charge £10k extra for what they class as a special colour.

I dare say, you could order a new Morgan unpainted and spend the rest of you life polishing yourself, I wonder if anybody has done that?

The partially polished Mog is not my cup of tea
and the Porker is a true example of bad taste.

The porker puts the c into it (cwrap) for me. Just a lottle bit to loud for words. I like the effect that the bonnet panels being naked/polished gives as a contrast.
