This one is being offered at a price reflecting condition for a 2007 car which may suit someone on here.

Why don't BHM do it themselves? Worth another 15K retail fixed? 🤔

Looks OK to me. I wonder how bad the hood is?

Looking at Peter's pictures it looks like you are right, none of that work will be cheap to remedy.
Personally I would steer clear of it as if that's what you can see I wonder how the rest of the fairly fragile bits have fared as it looks unloved - you could end up needing a season ticket to SimonH's place..

Lincolnshire, the hilly bit!
I called BHM this morning because i thought it might be something i could have a go at, the list of visable faults are...
Full respray needed, there is corrosion in many different areas, some bad scuffs and a poor attempt of a repair and paint to another area.
Hood needs replacing
Drivers seat worn but repairable
Wheels badly curbed but could be restored
ABS light on
Power sterring leak
Air con not working
There is also no Morgan service history , the servicing that has been done is by a local garage with the emphasis on economy.
There could be any number of hidden faults underneath .
If you were buying to keep the car i think you might just break even,but to resell for any profit would be a big risk in my opinion

Hmm, definitely a bit of a risk. You'd need to be prepared to do a lot of work yourself to make this a worthwhile proposition. Once the engine is sorted it would make an awesome Rat Car though. Remove as much silencing as you can, forget the unneccesary stuff like aircon, and brush paint the lot in matt black.

She needs a full factory reconditioning, new hood and re-spray, reconditioned wheels and based on the "wear items" on my 2014 Plus 8 with close to the same miles, a SSL Suspension workover.
As it is a manual the clutch may need replacing.
There is a nice car there, but not at that price with all the work to be done, when there is a virtually identical car at Williams for £65,000
