Very cool find, Richard. I agree that this is a special car. If I were in the market, this one I would prefer to a CX and safe 30K.

Agreed about the affordability, a lot of (low mileage) car for the money. These were attracting pricing if not sales approaching £100,000 more not so long ago.

B&C had a Speedster in that colour which I test drove - ultimately leading me to buy my +8. Unfortunately I am a bit too tall for the Speedster and didn't fancy a mouthful of wasps and flies every time I took it out. smile

But it's a lovely design, just right to my eyes.

Lovely car!
But any talk of it being better than the Plus Six is misguided IMHO.
The CX platform is in a different league to the old ali chassis on that car and I wouldn't buy it on those grounds.
There really is no comparison between the handling of the two cars and everything else is basically what you want it to look like

Indeed, a Speedster is going to be a "it's how you want to look" choice - but I'm not sure the CX car will be the nicer car to drive.

While Aero & CX chassis are leagues ahead of Trads, I doubt there's much difference in the chassis abilities between this Speedster's Aero chassis and a CX Plus Six - the CX might have a theoretical edge, but it'd be lost to being that bit harder to exploit. I reckon you'd have less confidence in the Six - losing it somewhere between the Six' well-known difficulties under acceleration making it hard to consistently get the power to the road, and Morgan's preference for trad-style suspension setups. In contrast, the auto box suits the V8, encouraging progressive power delivery without surprises.

And of course an SSL suspension improves both cars. :-)

Thankfully, there are enough rooms in the Morgan Mansion for all tastes.

It's never been about which is better because Morgan is a cheeseboard with Marmite dips.

I found the cheese I like best. If others prefer different cheeses, I really don't care. I wouldn't even try tasting the Marmite dip.

With Dave W on this, I really like it and know that it would be a hoot to drive, black upholstery no good out here but at that price compared to a CX wow.
