Got one smile

1972 4/4 - has had a partial resto, but from what I could see from all the paperwork at Allon White, the woodwork is still original. Still, even if it isn't, it's still from the factory when my Grandad was there.

Pick up a week on Saturday.....

My Morgan

Thank you - the price was VERY attractive (especially with full dealer back up) and I thought better to buy with an approaching winter, than in the spring when 'open tops' become more desirable smile

Excellent.
When you check the wiring, you may find a heavy brown wire leading from the starter relay on the nearside bulkhead that disappears behind the dash and reappears on the offside at the fuse box. The fusebox (if original) will only have 3 or 4 fuses fitted. Check the brown wire near the starter relay has a circuit breaker or fusible link fitted. If not, fit one soonest. You might find a photo or two on here of the modifications I did to my '76 wiring in that area.

Most of all, have fun with the car. 4 seater X-flow prices have risen quite dramatically since I thought about looking a few years ago. smile

Congratulations that you have got such a personal car!

It is a very emotional thing to drive a car that perhaps is a (little bit) build by your own granddad!
