I understood the S1 was used as the base for the GTN and the suspension had adjusted settings ? Always happy to be corrected by the chief spanner.


Just time to rent a thimble more petrol before dinner.

Who you calling a spanner….? cheers

They didn’t have modified suspension or bigger brakes despite the marketing…: x

One of my absolute favourite cars, they do seem odd in the for sale world though - I guess as Morgan is such a niche mark, and this is a niche of a niche!

11/11 was up for sale a few years ago, sat around for over 12 months with very little interest and in the end didn't sell. When I showed some interest it wasn't met with much enthusiasm by the dealer either. I hope this one sells more easily. cheers

It did sell, I almost had it to have one to keep and one to drive! It lives in Malvern now and sometimes comes over to mine so the two can go out for a drive :-)

I don't mind if mine doesn't sell, I have another car I want to buy so need to free up some space. The Flaminia is for sale as well and whichever goes first will make way for the new one.

I hope it doesn't end up across the pond like many others.


I have had an enquiry from a collector in the US but until it is 25 years old it is almost impossible to get federal permission to permanently import into the US . Even at 25 years old it might be difficult. So staying in Europe, Asia or Australasia :-)

Good to hear it did find a new home, I hope the Flaminia sells first!

Might get to see a picture of the two GTN's then.. wink

Here are GTN number 10 and Number 11. I have the soft top fitted in this picture. Hard top is back on now.
