I expect Budster will be along in a minute to refute these scurrilous allegations about Stanley's ancestry.....
Did someone mention my name?
Basically, the Runabout was specified as follows;
A reduced number of bonnet louvres, normally just 10 each side to the rear of the bonnet.
Cloth facings to the seats.
Vinyl, rather than leather, covering the inner panels.
Painted wire wheels.
Fixed seat backs.
Some have full bumpers, some don’t.
Some have tread rubbers, some don’t.
Some have a 9 stud hood, some have an Easy-up.
Some have a painted dash, some have a vinyl covering.
Some have a glove box, some don’t.
Some have exterior door handles, some don’t.
So, typically Morgan.
The black top Zetec engine is a cracker, lots of torque for a 1.8!
The reduced louvres mean no panics of flooded spark plugs, when parked on heavy rain!
I have owned mine for 14 years. I bought it on the basis of the newest car I could afford for my budget. Since then, I have made just a few upgrades Connolly leather seats and transmission tunnel - (£450 from a friendly trimmer, by leaving the seats with him for a few weeks during the winter); Motolita steering wheel; S/h walnut dash.
42,000 miles later I absolutely love my 4/4 Runabout (or “Poverty model” as once described by a member of TM)
