This Bob Harper creation still intrigues me and the price includes reversion to RHD apparently, he was a very clever talented chap.

It's a 1975 chassis but has the 3.9Ltr power unit fitted from 1990 when it underwent the conversion.

I have seen a green Mog with a boot fitted by Bob Harper but never the DHC conversion. It does look good & different.

Very nice. However, a bit like Land Rovers there is a lack of driver's elbow room.
Harpers did some interesting work on Morgans.

I remember seeing it at one of the Mog meetings just after Bob completed it. The quality and finish was outstanding.

I agree - in this shot it looks ok but has a side exhaust fitted (maybe the flattened/grounded rear tailpipes tell a story) so not sure when that was or maybe they are using library pictures in the advert. These are off the Snobmog site.

This is arguably the definitive +8 coupe as built by MMC. Created for Jane Morgan.

Then re-built - notable for it's auto 'box.
