Very nice colour combo, not seen a satin finish to the dash in a Roadster before

It looks very elegant and stylish! Congratulations! Also a great color combination. And as an extra a picture of you in the window when shooting the rear of the car.

When you say "Rolling Chassis", is it because in the states you can't buy a complete Morgan due to regulations, you must first buy a rolling chassis & then have the dealer fit the power train in the car?

the "Satin" finish is wonderful. I find it to be non-glaring and is a subtle upgrade to the dash. I did consider, painting the dash same as exterior, then it would take away from its vintage heritage.

Hello Stefan,

- the wheels are 6.5" X 15"

- 16" would have been a nice option, but was not offered at time of ordering.

- the black wheels keeps with the overall color concept I was aiming for.

Thank you for the greeting and input...

Sir John,

You are correct, due to USA regulations, the only way around the red tape, is to purchase the "Rolling Chassis" and mate it with a factory engine and drivetrain in the USA. It requires quite a bit coordination and knowledge by the authorized dealer (MorganWest) to get it back to factory specification.

The end result, is just like when it rolls off the factory floor in Malvern.

I have wanted one for over 4 years, but never found one to my liking. So the opportunity came around, and moved on it with Dennis Glavis, who is quite an enthusiast of Morgans at MorganWest.
