Exactly, it's why I would choose a different options list for my (fantasy) CX car, I also wouldn't have considered a car the colour of Tarka until I seen it, now I would, it's stunning.

Might not look as good on a plus four though. sherlock




They seem to have made a few bronze new plus fours which look interesting ! thinking

All Morgans are 'traditional' - i.e. part of a long established tradition. I was very glad to move from my Roadster to the 8 - all the good points amplified and all the bad ones eradicated.

Wires wouldn't work beyond a certain engine torque... you'd have a driveway full of coat hangers. smile

at least one of the last Roadsters had this version too


It doesn't look like the fuel filler is lockable, according to the Owner's Manual:

Not sure I'd like to dangle a fuel cap onto my shiny paintwork, always remove the wire, I suppose. Just have to carry an old rag to stuff in the hole for when I drive away and leave it sitting on top of the pump doh
