Hello everybody,

I introduce myself as new to this forum.
I have always been passionate about cars. I grew up in an r5ts, fiat ritmo abarth, lancia delta hf turbo, I learned to drive on a 309 GTI 16.
My first car was a 1978 vw beetle, then a peugeot 106 rally 2. Then a xsara picasso for an everyday car.
My pleasure cars were a 1974 mgb gt v8 which I sold quite quickly because I wanted to taste something more muscular: a tvr chimaera 400. It's a very good car, pleasant, comfortable and efficient. I sold it to get back in search of a B GT V8 to install my children in the back (they were small .....). I sold it in the spring.
I found my Plus 8 in the Netherlands. Go by plane from Paris and return from Amsterdam to the south of the Paris region by road and in the pouring rain....
This is a 1991 Morgan plus 8, first hand. I must have the +8 which has driven the most in the world 450,000 km in 30 years by its owner!!!

Goodbye

Laurent

Hi Laurent ... lovely looking car ... I'm not an expert but it looks nicely unmolested and original to me ... let us know how you get on with it (pouring rain not the ideal first trip!! 🙂)

As long as the car is really well maintained high mileage is not a problem.

Looks like a nice example. Is this injection with no catalysts? 1992/3 was the year cats became standard in UK , but i think export models changed earlier.

Welcome to the forum Laurent. How unusual a high mileage Morgan, and it looks as if fresh out of the factory. thumbs
I hope the sun shines on you for your next extended trip. There are a few high mileage Morgans in the US and Canada, thus your highest mileage claim might be challenged.. smile
