I am pondering returning to the fold, but with an extra wheel this time. So please advise me: +8 or +4 (trad)? And what is the most desirable specification for either of them?

Try both and see what suits you! You will probably get conflicting advice here as the +4 owners will promote their p&j's as will the +8 owners!
You won't be surprised that I would suggest the +8!

You really need to try both, and bear in mind that no two will drive the same anyway.

The most desirable spec is in the eye of the beholder so even that is elusive. Colour, wheels, spare or not, hood design and colour, interior are all variable, so you just need to find a Morgan you like, then buy it.

And include Roadsters.

And I would politely suggest considering a Plus Four. They are brillo
I’ve also heard said in some circles that a shade of red called Bentley Velvet is the best colour you can get and raises the most smiles on others faces…😇
Glad I could help

More fake news above. The best colour is cream body with dark blue wings. Best for everything.

I had no choice, I’d always wanted a plus 8 since 1970. Would have made no difference if I’d been offered a brand new one or an old plus 8. Plus 8 it had to be.


94 plus 8 in Westminster Green - I think!
