looks very tidy and well looked after - only the interior lets it down a little , but easily sorted.

Will watch with interest.....

It does look tidy. Has a few had repairs to stated 'minor' damage on front wings but done by main dealer so don't think it's too much of an issue. Also has play in steering rack - a known early wear item. Also a chip on the windscreen out of line of sight, but you can't get the screens anymore (I had the last one!). So I agree a tidy car, maybe not the best of colours but nice that it's low mileage & one owner. My feeling is it should be making around £45K but any less will be perhaps a sign of nervousness in the current economic climate. Bear in mind there is a 5%+vat buyer's premium on top as well

Good considering she is not young!

Given the turn in the economy it will be interesting to see where it does land.


Everyone loves a Morgan. Even me, unless it's broken again.

The interior leather on seats, sills and steering wheel suggests more wear than 23k miles IMHO.


Cheers, Paul

Considering the very unfortunate timing to be having an online auction end with the way the financial markets are behaving at the moment, bidding is looking surprisingly lively, especially when the buyer has to pay 5%+vat on top

I agree it looks very worn, but the MOT history seems to support the indicated mileage..... confused2

In fairness the sills are not worn the leather tends to crack because of the water ingress, the bolster will get worn if you are certain age and wear jeans and not forgetting a run out for some is 5 miles three times a week instead of a 150 miler on a weekend. Sold mine a bit too cheap I think but no regrets. If it goes around the forty mark its the old plus 8 money don't quite get it its chalk and fast cheese....

With online auctions relying on photo's and descriptions there is always a bit more caution to valuations (that's my experience) so feel the price achieved on here may not reflect the actual valuation. Having said that wouldn't be suprised if it makes over £50k with premium (would be 3 to 5k more if spring).
