Took the plant tour not to long ago and was impressed with the CX but disappointed with no manual transmission now that Morgan says they will add one to one of the models I have renewed interest.Now all I need is to be able to buy in the US does anybody know if that’s in the plans?It would certainly help with increasing the sales.

SAE I haven't read anything about this happening - I guess Bill Fink and Tcherek and/or Denis Glavis should be able to give you a steer on this being your dealers out there.
Lets hope they can bring them to you it's a big Morgan hungry market out there and the Plus Six is all automatic thus far.

Initially they said that there were no plans to enter the US market. I think the cost of meeting US type approval regs is prohibitive. Apart from other considerations they may have to fit airbag and submit cars for crash testing.

If you are really interested you should contact the US agents for an answer.

I think Morgan will test the European Market first. If they need the U.S. Market to meet their sales goals they probably will look for ways to enter the U.S. Market, but if they don't they won't.

If the Obama "300 vehicle continuation" exemption ever becomes live then it might be a route in, but otherwise I doubt it.
The cost of getting the S2 Aero into the USA, with 11 cars destroyed in crash tests, was never recovered from the sales.
I was told it effectively doubled the cost of ever Aero made.

The other approach would be a factory in the USA, making CX cars....
the new owners have the funds to finance that if the business plan made sense.

The San Francisco Morgan dealership is closed. Bill Fink died in a house fire about 2 years ago and Tcherek said she could not continue the dealership herself.

I have placed a $1,000 deposit for a Plus Four with Dennis Glavis, the southern California Morgan dealer.

In a recent email communication with a Morgan factory rep., he said they anticipate delivery of the Plus Four to the US late summer or early fall 2023. They are dealing with EPA, DOT, NHTA and CARB compliance. I was in the scooter business, importing scooters from India and China. Working with those agencies is mind-numbing complicated.

My impression is that Morgan is serious about bringing the Plus Four to the U.S.

I told the rep. that I heard stories about Morgan production being so slow at one time that people died waiting for their turn in line, and I hoped that would not be my story.

Were it not for the efforts of Bill Fink, I suspect that ever increasing safety and emission regs from the 1970`s on would perhaps have denied imports of any Morgans to the US ...?

Interesting on the new US timing as it was going to be 2022 rather than 2023 maybe it is proving harder than they thought.

I do see they have the Super 3 in the US so at least the dealers now have something to sell.

For a time they did ship Morgan’s to with engines and gearboxes to be fitted there to get around the rules. This it was called the Roadster 35 or something. The whole premise was that the car was a replica of a classic I doubt they could do the sale
For a CX car.

One should think that CX-models could be imported as turn-key cars under the replica rules. After all, the Plus Four resembles the traditional Plus 4 as long as you don't look under the car. The number of cars imported will then be limited to 325 cars a year.
