I’ve specced my new Roadster with my dealer, Richard Thorne for a February/ March build date.

My last Roadster was black with stainless wires so I’ve gone for a completely different look this time- Dove Grey with Mulberry trim, walnut dash, black wires and traditional 9 stud black mohair hood. I’ve also added the Baby Doll valance and wing mounted sidelights. No wing treads this time but I’ve opted for heated seats which I think are worth the cost. I’m getting the black pack but deleting the black surrounds on the headlights. A few other extras as well which I may have to finesse over the next week or so if the cost spirals out of control!

Now I can relax after many weeks agonising over colours!

Sounds great although I saved upwards of £500 by having my overriders, grill and headlamp rims powder coated silk black by local company for £70. Added superior black wipers and arms as well. Food for thought maybe [Linked Image]

Dove Grey with Mulberry trim must look fantastic. I don't know if I've seen this combination before. It will be classic and lively at the same time. Dove Grey is a beautiful color that I would have on the short list, if I ever bought another Trad Morgan.

Another thought...I always wanted to do a factory tour. I forgot until when this tour is closed, I have to find the thread again where Graham told us. I hope that after the reopening I can still see how a classic Trad is built.

Thanks chaps.

Yes, I did wonder about the mulberry trim but a few dealers demos have been specced in this combo and Mulberry is not too bright. Imperial was another colour I considered as its a reddish brown. Honey would also look good.

Really envy you having the pleasure of choosing those options for a new car. I’ll have to enjoy it vicariously👍

My car is the last new Morgan they are supplying, sadly.

We should have a Talk Morgan factory visit in when the new visitors centre opens in March next year. maybe get a discount for a TM block booking?

There were 17 in my group when I did the tour any I was the only Morgan owner!

+1 for Dove Grey. Oakmere have a Plus 4 in Dove Grey/Mulberry. I much prefer black wheels
