Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 11/07/18 07:23 AM

Thought I should migrate my BaT posts as I have just realised my entries in For Sale & Wanted are in contravention of the rules of that forum (item 7).
It is good to keep in touch with price action in an important secondary market.


I think this will sell very well - A big V8 in the USofA

2002 Morgan Plus 8

(I should state for good order that I have no connection or financial interest in the BaT service)

Did not meet reserve - Best Bid US$54,388

Very surprising. The auction commentary indicates there are a few of these on offer but just aren't moving which I find even more surprising.

This one is at $56,000 with bidding time left, so if $15,000 buys a good one it would still be a bargain if one shipped it back to the UK.

Looking at it again, and at the prices being asked for similar 190 SLs, I think the ad has missed a zero. Typical prices for a good example of this vintage have been around €130,000.

1934 Supersports €95,000
Posted By: Tony Quinn

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 20/10/18 07:01 PM

It's about three times the market value. The black and white photo came from an entertaining article in the MTWC Bulletin of about 1970 relating to a purported Yorkshire Road Race which was in fact a spoof, but which fooled a lot of people at the time. The article referred to the engine being tuned by Chaffinch Motors of Far Headingley, a firm that I understand was completely made up but which is blindly reproduced in the current advertisement! Such is life.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 26/10/18 08:10 PM

Given that it does not have the usual pre-2014 fixes (another c.$9000), they are on the verge of over-bidding.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 26/10/18 08:31 PM

The seller removed the Reserve at the last minute, but the winning bid of $36,000 was way too high. The buyer must be putting quite a premium on provenance.

I forgot about the additional 5% ($1800) buyer's fee, which one commentator has indicated has been avoided as buyer and seller have dealt outside the BAT auction. When we see future auctions, we need to add that on.

This auction got a little nasty in the end judging by the commentary.
Seems like the seller did not get his reserve so took the US$36,000 to be done with it.

Oh well...

Interesting to note that the last 5 Morgan vehicles offered on this site have failed to meet reserve. Sign of the times perhaps?

1998 ? Plus 8

This one brings some contention over providence as it was built in 2000 but listed as a 1998 apparently to avoid the "Air Bag" compliance issue according to the interesting pre auction commentary - not sure how they got away with that....

Looks like it has the "New" 2014 chassis and other up grades according to the seller....
Posted By: M3W55

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 14/11/18 10:07 PM

Not so sure. Tick for bump steering but when the seller talks of a new post-2014 chassis I wonder if it means the chassis brace (which is not the same as a new chassis) retro-fitted to early examples? And no Centa Drive, steel drive sprocket, or cooling fan. The buyer will probably have a few Dollars to spend notwithstanding that it only has (effectively) delivery mileage on it.
Posted By: M3W55

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 15/11/18 08:53 PM

I stand corrected. Having just looked at the selection of early M3Ws for sale on Hemmings, there are several at $40,000 (and quite a bit more); some with all the upgrades; others perhaps not. So let's bet on this one reaching a minimum of $38,000.
Posted By: M3W55

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 20/11/18 11:09 PM

2013 Morgan 3W


The vendor tried very hard to push this one over the sales threshold. It did not meet price expectations but I suspect this is a classic case of knowing what you are buying. Good to see plenty of references to TM for advice and that the new owner is already here.

Love the comment by one experienced owner who's mantra on the Morgan 3 wheeler appears to be;

"Buy one of these.. drive it like you stole it… fix it. Repeat"
Posted By: M3W55

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 23/11/18 07:08 AM

I see the seller had advertised it on Craigslist for $34,000, which (incl commission) is what the BAT buyer paid.

When the Delorean was developed they made enough parts to build 35,000 cars but only sold 9,000.

The remaining parts stock now resides in the store of the Delorean Motor Company in Houston, Texas.

You can still get about 98.5% of all parts required to build a new Delorean with 90% coming from NOS held in Texas and the remainder are remanufactured items in the aftermarket which is very active.

Engines were Volvo, transmission - Peugeot, brakes - Jaguar & Cortina so plenty of supply.

Parts are reasonably priced. Shipping is expensive but prompt with great service provided across Delorean dealers in the US, UK and Europe. Interestingly, DeloreanGo based in the UK is a major supplier of parts which are cheap by comparison because the Pound is so weak and they will ship for free over a set order level.

Take a quick look at the interactive parts identification and order site of the Houston office.....

That Bugatti is stunning.

Earlier this year, I broke down outside a rather lovely manoir in France. While I was waiting for the recovery people, the elderly owner showed me his Type 35 and Type 52 that he had restored himself. For a few minutes, the buggeration of my machine going phut was forgotten while I drooled over those beauties. Sadly, he would not let me have one as a courtesy car for the week.

I like them too OZ, under- rated and mostly unloved in UK. There are several coupes lying around in my area, but they all rot from the bottom up, any I’ve seen are too far gone to be worth the bother.

The convertible is very rare here and doubt there could me many left worldwide, if it’s a good as it looks, it’s a bit of a bargain. Not much servicing done though and 15” wheels look tiny on a car that size.

ewn, one of our local car club members has a hard top version in the same colour configuration. Looks & drives magnificently and purchased at a good price. Rust and lack of maintenance are the enemy but a good "fine climate" example I think would be a great find.

I suspect there may be an after auction deal to be done here. Still represents value around that price.

YOU WILL LOVE THIS NO-NONSENSE 101-YEAR-OLD LADY

A Car Salesman's Nightmare...

She won’t buy a new car until she has worn her old one out and it is still in new condition, after all it is only 85 years old (the car that is, oh, the lady... she’s 101!)

This lady’s car is a 1930 Packard. What a pleasant and spry lady she is!

Take note in the video that she lays a shop rag on the running board to step onto when she gets in and out of the car. Then after she is in the car, she leans all the way down to the running-board to get the rag.

She is in great physical and mental shape for her age. The car is not bad either!

I started to rofland said to swmbo thought she was bragging about her boobs and yes I would love to help her clean her car .

I don't think it's a real Aeromax. It looks like an S1 that has been converted to look like one. In any case, it looks really rough.

That Alvis is nice. I could be tempted by one of those little Austins.
As for the "Aeromax", looking at the photos at first I thought it had been pranged - poor panel fit, sidepipes are not equal, no speedometer poor interior finish on trans tunnel and so on. then I cam to the BMW V10, and laughed.
Some years ago (and I expect he may be along sometime) Cerealsurfer mentioned (here on TM) a V10 Aero that was up for sale - various panels in carbon fibre etc. I suspect this may be the same car, moved on a little further. TBH it looks a bit (?lot) of a mess...

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 29/01/19 03:45 PM

I don't think that Brightwells should be calling it an Aeromax.

To be fair, in their description, the clues are there, "Unique one-off Aero 8-based special; 500bhp BMW S85 V10 engine; AeroMax coupe coachwork; interesting history; awesome!" but it should surely be described as a Morgan Aero Special or some such.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 10/02/19 12:01 PM

The Mercedes is a beautiful car in a beautiful color and obviously in a very good condition. If a reader opinion also complains that one does not see a photo of the area door, rocker panel, fender in front.

But what I want to say is, I admire this car and I have respect. But this car would never be a must have for me. I'm just too young for that. Mostly the classic cars are sold best, which are not older than the adolescence of the buyers. Exceptions confirm the rule, then there are most old rich collectors.

Or it's a light and sporty car like John's Ulster, where the driving fun is timeless.

Re the AeroMax.

It turns out the auctioneer is a certain Matthew Parkin (Brightwells head of classic motoring) who many of you will no doubt know from his Morgan days. I suspect they have a bead on the Heinz 57 AeroMax.

I have known this car and owner for most of my life (see my comments on both under the name Rikky_Von_Opel in the BaT auction).

This really is a great car for someone looking for a good solid driver. As mentioned in my post I have not seen the car in some time but know that it was running and driving last year. If anyone would like me to go for a visit I would be more than happy to do so.

Best,

Brian

Looking around the door areas this will be a complete rebuild job, I would guess the ash frame has suffered on this one. All doable but needs a lot of money factoring in IMHO.

That looks interesting it appears they have removed the horrendous looking spring arrangement on the front bumper with overiders (witness black holes).
The P6000 tyres will be out of date by now I'm surprised they missed that, they stopped producing them a while ago now.

Dennis Glavis has no less than 3 of these Anniversary models in stock but they have the dodgy looking sprung high bumpers fitted.

Nice car. The photo on the lifting platform...I am not a specialist but I would have chosen the cross beam of the transmission for the lifting arms in front. At least I was glad that I could give the workshop in Udine, Italy instructions where to put the points when they had greased the front axle.

SOLD US$38,500

The Vendor paid US$ 43,250 to buy it on BaT in September 2018
After he paid commission, transport and rego fees as well as his own modifications he probably had US$ 47,0000 + into the vehicle

An expensive exercise to drive 350 miles in a year

But hey, he had fun.....
That's the way the market is


Yes - the new buyer did quite well.

Surprised to see the speedo only goes up to 85mph. I thought its quoted top speed was 110, but its performance certainly belied the racy looks.

Quite right M3W55. The "D" was not known for its performance. While the engine and gear box are beautifully matched in the 5 speed version, 130 bhp was just not going to cut it even back then. It was one of the reasons the car sold never once the initial hype settled down. I'm not sure what the real top speed is and I have no intention of trying to find out but she is a fantastic car of the freeway at 110 kph.......

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 03/11/19 07:30 AM

Days of the "double nickel" speed limit.
I vaguely remember all cars in USA had speedometers that did not have any markings above 85mph. Can't remember what was on my hire car in Portland Or back in the early 80s.
So could be failing memory! oldgit smile

You could well be right Graham but I do know you can buy an after market speedo with a max of 95 MPH. The movie car was modified that way so it could show 88 MPH ( then you were going to see some serious shite......)

I would have thought someone would have liked it, maybe Hawaii is too small and getting it shipped and registered elsewhere is too hard.

Ebay recommended this to me https://www.ebay.com/itm/2018-Morga...3914127?_trksid=p2385738.m4383.l4275.c10 Interesting to look at and i am sure someone will love it but I can't afford it and if I did I would not chose it because I don't like the gearbox or the colour or the steering wheel on the wrong side.

This was an odd one. The winner got it for $40,000, having overbid by $11,000 two days ago with no-one bidding since. We don't know what the reserve was, but he might be thinking he was too generous. It's still a good price for the US though.

Looking at the bid history of the buyer it appears he likes the low to mid price Ferrari's and Mercedes that he can pick up cheap and "flip".

This time he miss priced the car and got tagged. Expect to see this back on the market somewhere soon....

This was an odd one. The winner got it for $40,000, having overbid by $11,000 two days ago with no-one bidding since. We don't know what the reserve was, but he might be thinking he was too generous. It's still a good price for the US though.


Looking at the bid history of the buyer it appears he likes the low to mid price Ferrari's and Mercedes that he can pick up cheap and "flip".

This time he miss priced the car and got tagged. Expect to see this back on the market somewhere soon....

To be fair the argument of "they all do that mate" could be applied if the screen/roof seals have not been maintained. Oh and around the door leading edge. Oh and bottoms. Oh and around the leading edge of the door front screens. Well you get the idea. Or if the screen was not fitted correctly.

The screen especially can lead to water getting in behind the dash which is what could flag up like this I guess. As S2/America only has a seal across the top and bottom so this is an issue. Unless the owner left it by edge of a river or in a puddle overnight?

Wow those VW kombis amaze me with what they fetch now, I got one of those multi window ones not long after leaving school for $200.00 NZ which is somewhere short of 100 pounds . It could hardly get up steep hills except in first with its wheezing 1200 cc .
Still I see a few restorers here specialising in them and even a Morgan dealer in the UK has done some, one of my nieces had three split screen ones as wedding cars, so they do appeal widely. The most amazing collection I stumbled across was about 10 years ago at a surf carnival -Manly beach Sydney superb Restos with all period accessories.

I found it interesting to read the comments on the 59+4, that section seems to attract "educated" Morgan comment, kinda like a discussion group as opposed to an auction site..? (-:

I note it has a TR engine which attracted interest. No more than a few months ago while once again trying to clear out my garage I gave a Morgan engine (ME engine number) and some All-Fin brake drums to a pal of mine who likes to mess around on eBay, I think he had little interest other than the sort of comment similar to that which appeared on the 59+4 thread... I think the engine ended up being scrapped... I guess those that value our old cars and related junk, are becoming fewer by the day....?

If last years MOAVII was anything to go by then a less than perfect Aero 8 is not the way to go. There were two Aero 8s on the rally and they were the ones that had the most mechanical issues both being towed on a number of occasions with one not completing the event. They were well looked after Aeros that had been fully maintained and prepped for the event.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 07/04/20 01:37 PM

I was strongly interested in getting that car, I thought it would go in the 45-50k$ range and would afford me the opportunity of a finally getting into aero ownership with the undrstanding that I could experience some higher running cost during the first few months. Much to my surprise it went way above that. I talked to the owner (very nice guy) and his mechanic/electrician. The amount of money spent on the rebuilt of the car was incredible, north of 40k. Pretty much everything electronic was changed but the wiring loom: started, alternator, EWS, ECU, dash instruments, windshield wiper motor, window motor. All drivetrain was checked, clutch, TOB, pressure plate replace, gearbox and transmission opened, all bearings replaced.
What baffles me is that I was apparently the only one from the 7-8 people willing to drop 45k or more on the car to pick up the phone. at the end I think the seller got a great price for his car, and the buyer a good deal if everything works out ok.

That's around A$86,500 on a straight currency conversion so about the current Australian market.

It always saddens me when the vehicle description includes “..... is now offered on behalf of the late owner’s estate.....” as this beautiful Morgan’s description states. You know that this was the owner's pride and joy, ordered exactly as he wanted and with the photo build record documenting his car being built per his desires.
With only 16k miles in 22 years it is hardly broken in, but here’s to hoping that the owner had a huge smile on his face for every single one of those miles, and I’d be willing to wager that he did. Hopefully this vehicle will go to someone who will love it as much as it appears the previous owner did.

BARGAINS John..? I wonder what evaluation process you might be using..? Even pre-Covid-19 there were quite a few questions in my mind relative to the evaluation of ICE car market values as the result of possible changes in legislation relative to climate change..?

The whole idea of classic cars as some form of investment seems to be a tad risky, and as for Morgans, it seems the young have little interest in them..? Given the likely age of the average Morganeer.. it looks to me that there may be a degree of re-evaluation required, IF there might have ever been a need or plan that the value tied up in a Morgan may in time be released for other purposes...?

I suspect the sad story of Morgans and other classics coming to market as the result of any of the three "D`s" and the desire being to then turn hardly used toys back into cash, is one that seems likely to grow with time as the Covid effect begins to be REALLY felt, add to that the baby boomers such as I loosing their grip on the perch. and while I am no economist, I think markets work on a base line of supply relative demand..?

If on the other hand the possibility of falling value presents an opportunity to upgrade one`s classic car, and with no concern relative to the amount of cash involved in the process, then that may indeed be regarded as an opportunity, even if it seems possible the classic`s market value might seem likely to fall further still. perhaps even becoming deemed worthless in the market...?

Though having acquired that classic for a bargain price, when do we imagine we might be able to use it on the road..? Perhaps that matters not a jot, if like so many other classics it provides pleasure enough to have it just sitting in the garage, as so many such machines seem to do.... My own included..?

I expect a process of the re-evaluation of much may begin if not immediately, then perhaps sooner rather than later..? However there would seem to have been perhaps a 10 year build up of momentum in the classic market and others, which Covid-19 may have some potential to put the brakes on to some degree, if/when a somewhat more basic level of priorities may come to pass..?

Yeah, it`s being such a cheery chap that keeps me going.... laugh2

It is reassuring that after a sluggish start, as is the case with BaT it got pretty spirited at the end. Hopefully the new owner will change the steering wheel....

Well, the stewards did a swab and came back with the expected response of "nothing to see here".
Even if there was, you can bet they would not publically acknowledge it.

I can’t imagine that the finish on that bare aluminum is as it came from the factory. Looks more like someone got tired of polishing it to keep it nice and shiny and took an orbital sander loaded with 180 grit and went at it.

I think it would be a nightmare of a project and a huge investment in time making it look decent at anything closer than 15ft away. Just one person’s opinion of course.

I assume that the factory would be starting with mill finish aluminum which would have a considerably smoother finish than what is currently on this car in order to polish it for £8030? It wouldn’t surprise me if the cost was 2-3x to bring this one back *if that is what the new owner intends to do.*.

Perhaps he (she) likes it like this, or perhaps they felt it was a good starting point for primer and paint? Who knows, just seems like very strong money the way it is. Congratulations to the buyer for getting what they wanted in any case!

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 09/06/20 09:11 PM

Looks like they had gone over it with a coarse 3M pad to flat it off as if to prepare for painting or maybe they like that look, it must have sat for long periods to have such low mileage and need all that hydraulic stuff replacing.

I never rated MGAs until I sold my Bv8 to a guy with one.

It was a 1600Mk2. Perfectly restored. He took me for a run over the Yorkshire Wolds on a perfect summers day. It was hugely impressive. Tight, no rattles, quick enough to be fun, and a lovely exhaust note.

That single experience changed my views completely.

It went for $14,000, the same price that Wheeler Dealers paid for theirs. After a refurb, it was sold for $35,000 (and values may have risen since then). But their £6,500 profit did not include labour costs, which would have been substantial.

But is it just me, it's condition just looks "too perfect" over restored? Perhaps it's a reaction to what I see when I look in the mirror, a lot of natural patina!

Spot on David, this Alfa is glorious but I suspect it has been restored then detailed to within an inch of its life.

Money the vendor won't get back even at the current price.

A quote from the auction sales pitch - the car remained with a single owner in North Carolina from 1996 through 2019, and during that time garnered awards at Amelia Island and Radnor Hunt, among other concours events.

Here is a quote from the auction commentary
Jul 4 at 9:34 AM
Rhayner 613
I had a 74 260Z which I bought new and owned for 10 years. It was metallic green with tan interior and I loved it more than my then wife, lol. I can’t be sure but it probably handled pretty much the same as a 240. By todays standards it’s rubbish, but compared to the British competition at the time it was a dream sports car. I miss it and it will always hold a special place in my memories.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 04/07/20 04:51 PM

The Nissan restoration cars are highly sought after and hence the price. Mine is a 1973, Rich I'd love it to be worth a fortune but its a strange market with the prices always being talked down by those that own the cars. It doesn't seem like 5 years but it's probably getting on for that. I keep thinking of selling it as I don't use it much but then got out for a run in it and change my mind.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 07/07/20 10:02 PM

The Lotus went for much more than the AM. Were it not for the imponderables of the possible limitations of internal combustion engines, I would keep my 2007 Elise with Cup 240 Exige wheels and Komotec Rotrex loader for a while. Under normal conditions these are the classics of the next ten years. If the Elise would be my main favorite, I would not care and I would ride her a lot with fun in it. But since my 4/4 is the main fun car, the Elise will go in the foreseeable future.

In Italy they're known as a "Topolino" because that means a "little mouse". The same name, "Topolino", is used for Micky Mouse and is also the tittle of a children's Disney comic periodical.

Mouse grey does seem an appropriate colour laugh

What a coincidence! We saw an XK150 Roadster on a trailer when we were on the Autostrada today. It has racing numbers and two names (driver and navaigator?) so probably they were using it in classic rallying. I doubt actual racing as it had no roll bar etc.

I wanted one of those years ago. The frame flexed a bit under any circumstances (I think one road tester described it as having a hinge in the middle) grin2
That engine will need a bottom up rebuild if it has not been run, unless the new owner only intends it for static display.

Somewhere I had a copy of a comparison review of the then available 750s. Interestingly the Moto Guzzi 750 Sport had the highest top speed of 205 km/h but the speedometer registered 200 km/h. The Honda and something else which I don't recall had speedometers that registered 200 km/h or slightly more but actually achieved about 195 km/h. The comment about the Kawasaki triple was that it probably had a higher potential top speed but none of their test riders was able to find the limits because the bike went into a terrifying tankslapper at speed because of the poor quality of the frame and "cycle parts" (ie forks, steering bearings, dampers, etc.)

In Australia, and probably elsewhere, they were known as the "widowmaker". Often riders found that the brakes were so poor that they could not slow down at the end of a high speed run on a long straight and finished up decorating the countryside scared

This sale was of personal interest given my Grandad owned and loved his 1926 Type 40 which he purchased in 1932.
The first photo shows the car pulled out of the garage for sale in 1977.
Grandad died in 1952 and the car sat in the garage till that sale.
The Bugatti Owners Almanic has the car listed as one of the most original Bugatti's in Australia at the time.

The second photo shows it with a new owner and clearly renovated, sadly without the Elephant statue hood ornament.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 05/09/20 08:39 PM

Do you guys ever bid on any of these auctions ?

I must confess, I have developed a bit of a habit of buying art online at auction. There are 4 British painters whose work I collect. I have them logged with sites that flag up when they have work being sold at auction. I think I've been pretty successful at it, my wife is ok with it, and my daughter reckons I have a problem and should get help.
Posted By: ChrisConvertible

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 05/09/20 10:24 PM

I imported a Nissan Silvia from Japan, I owned the car for 18 years and it was great fun to drive so was worth it. However the import process is very complex and expensive and you really want to get all the permits etc. organised before the car leaves the other country, cars arriving without the permits must be stripped for parts at the wharf and never used as a complete car.. So I have not bid on any of these cars and probably never will. Both the Bugatti and MG boat tail have the steering wheel on the correct side for Australia so more tempting but I have a Frontline based MGB project going to keep me entertained car wise without worrying about the hassles of importing cars.

There are separate rules for pre 1949 cars but whether a 1924 Bugatti built in 2014 counts as 1924 or 2014 would be debated, I could lose and I doubt it would pass 2014 ADR rules. Would the 1949 MG count as pre 1949, to me pre means before so not equal or greater than.

I do look on Reverb for guitars but also not bought any mainly because I haven't found something that falls into the i really want to have category. Also a good friend is a luthier and some of the repairs he has had to do on guitars on Reverb advertised as good condition does scare me off a bit.

Pandy, the problem with bidding at these auctions from Australia are our regulations and distance. To import a vehicle to Australia you need to get an import approval first so it is unlikely you will get that in time. You could take the risk, buy the car, have it stored and take your chances with the authorities. I acknowledge you would probably get approval for most of the vehicles on BaT however the import regulations, while not insurmountable, are significant and potentially expensive.

My interest with BaT centers on the wide range of vehicles submitted to an auction process that provides excellent price discovery and tends to draw an extensive log of commentary, much of which is interesting and offen well informed.

Not to mention the costly Asbestos inspection every car now has to have. That didn't exist back in 2002 when i bought my Silvia.

As long as you are just playing with money amounts you can afford - there is nothing wrong.

Maybe from the States ? The side repeaters and the higher level rear bumper makes me think that might be the case.
Posted By: +8Rich

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 10/09/20 01:47 PM

It has the 4 seater windscreen which all the States marketed ones were fitted with too.

The higher front "absorbed" bumper has been dropped and the holes either filled in or the spots are covering the holes, the former I hope.

Is it also possible that Joe wasn't the most recent owner? Maybe he sold it Stateside and it came back via someone else....?

I was thinking of buying a Burton and had a test ride with a preowned car.
Interesting car (you can also get a simple hood).
The Burton has a nice shape. But the engine sound.?. rofl wink

So I payd three times as much for a better looking car innocent

Hmmm. I wonder......

I remember a client of mine in the 1980s in South West of France, RAF Battle of Britain pilot Rex Furneaux, telling me about a Graber bodied Bentley drop head he had once owned.

Rex was a nice old stick, full of stories about his time in the RAF, and his business career after the end of hostilities. After the war, he went into property development in London, and IIRC owned a club or two. He owned a succession of fine cars, including a Graber bodied Bentley drop head. He ended up selling the car to Lonnie Donegan, who begged him to let him buy it. He said he always rather regretted letting it go.

I don't know how many Bentleys Graber bodied, I wonder if this one could have been Rex's.

I was over-optimistic. Sold for $330,000. But note this comment on the site: "Seems this was at the “bought back because it was underpriced” level of a year ago, after selling for 550k a few years earlier? So basically at the charity’s cost?"

I have a feeling that the reserve was $75,000 and that a deal was done between the seller and the highest bidder. With works Suffolks going for c.£67,000 in the UK (when one can find them), that's a good price. They are lovely vehicles and I would get one like a shot if the right one came on the market.

I must pay more attention to this thread as I almost missed this post.

A lovely engine for a 4/4 but a crazy price.

I bought my 2.0L crate engine in 2018 for about 1200 US Dollars but I already had a Librands manifold so need to add say another 800 USD for that. 2000USD in total tops and I get as much power as that engine up to 5600 RPM. And more torque.

It is true that the last few horses cost a lot more than the first few horses but nevertheless that is still a lot of money to pay if it is for a road car which will spend most of it's time probably below 6000 RPM.

If it is for a race car then I think it will need more power than that to be competitive.

Adding throttle bodies would cost about another 1500 USD or so and would add some more top end power but do nothing for the mid range torque.

Ok, so it has an uprated clutch, special sump, modified water rail, special BDA style cam cover etc but even so ????

As I said, a lovely engine for someone but overpriced. Not sure if that exhaust manifold would fit the 4/4 without a lot of chopping.

Crikey. That's pretty bitchy.

To be fair, the description is a little confusing, as the headline describes it as a Sedanca Drophead rather than a Sedanca Coupé, then in the text it is described as having a 3 position soft top (which it has not).

Sedanca means a car that can be open over the drivers head, but hard top over the passengers. A 2 door Sedanca Coupé is what would probably be described nowadays as a Targa. The irate would-be buyer is perhaps not familiar with the Sedanca body style. Some (as in this case) were built to look like a DHC, whilst others (such as Simon Taylor of C&SC's) the hard top over the rear section is clearly just that. The cognoscenti will have no trouble recognising this car for what it is.

Despite the terminological inexactitude, it looks like a decent car. The irate response seems rather over the top.

And the commentary got a bit nasty to boot.....

Here is the last entry:-
I’ve had better cars run over me, and a drophead coupe is a drophead coupe. When you refused to drop the top, you lost our confidence in your faux landaus. Good luck with the cognicenti you’ll find at Amelia. If you ever get over fifty thousand again, you’ll be a lucky fella. Trying to put one over on the Bat community is not the best of ideas. And the shame of it is that we don’t forget very easily. Let us know how much this drophead brings you at Amelia Island.


Crikey. That's pretty bitchy.

To be fair, the description is a little confusing, as the headline describes it as a Sedanca Drophead rather than a Sedanca Coupé, then in the text it is described as having a 3 position soft top (which it has not).

Sedanca means a car that can be open over the drivers head, but hard top over the passengers. A 2 door Sedanca Coupé is what would probably be described nowadays as a Targa. The irate would-be buyer is perhaps not familiar with the Sedanca body style. Some (as in this case) were built to look like a DHC, whilst others (such as Simon Taylor of C&SC's) the hard top over the rear section is clearly just that. The cognoscenti will have no trouble recognising this car for what it is.

Despite the terminological inexactitude, it looks like a decent car. The irate response seems rather over the top.

Nice summation Giles, thank you. BaT does get a bit heated on occasions...

Watch the BaT auctions from time to time. There are some bargains from a European perspective, not worried about the LHD as do (did) loads of miles in my +8 on the continent. Even at 30% uplift for tax and shipping there are some good buys.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 07/02/21 08:28 PM

It refers to recall and warranty work, so that would include the chassis brace; but sprocket, Centa Drive, steering, cooling fan etc would have to be fitted. the chassis should be in good shape as it has barely seen a road.

Being Propane will have dramatically lowered the price along with some of the aftermarket work done, I also wonder whether the location of the front indicators and no front bumper would pass some local jurisdictions.

I imagine the reserve price was $35k, if they had lifted the reserve at $31k I bet they would have got more than 35k.

OZ 4/4 , some nice pictures. It's good to see the speedo in the 2 tone MOG not giving an accurate reading when starting off. I thought it was only mine that did that!!

Also I love the fact that some of the cars have been long term ownership, the E Type since 1974 etc. I remember seeing a chap who had a 1930s Austin and inherited it off his Dad. The sad thing was he had to get rid, or at the time was looking moving it on, as no one in his family was intreasted in taking it on.(80/90 odd years ). I find stories like that very sad.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 03/04/21 09:18 PM

I drove a few P6 Rovers in the seventies. They have a real armchair floaty feel and are a pleasant drive. I once had to drive one to a workshop for attention. The four speed box was so badly worn that there was no gate. It was literally a spoon in rice pudding, and was a real challenge to find any gear!

BaT is unique in that you can follow the auction commentary which is usually interesting and informative. You are right Nick in that it has a U.S.focus but it is the purest form of a market where you get true market activity and price discovery.

It is certainly a better restoration base as this one here
Nevertheless, the red fourseater looks even worse than my Morgan when I started with the project. Whoever buys the car - a complete restoration is most likely required.

A better choice would be this fourseater from Siegburg

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 21/04/21 08:38 AM

Of course, the better car is the better buy. But if someone wants to save a Morgan himself, or wants to realize his own ideas, then the red one is interesting.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 12/05/21 04:41 PM

A friend of mine restored a DB5 before prices went stupid. I had a drive in it, and it went very well, but the brakes were very period.

Overall, and you know I like period harshness, it was hard work and lacked the Wow factor, except for those seeing it from the outside.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 12/05/21 04:48 PM

I'd much rather have the V8 power and looks of the later DBS these old one's don't do it for me but the price will doubtless be crazy as a lot think they are the DB's.

I remember Neil on here relating his ownership of one of the earlier cars as pretty underwhelming.

You would need a lot more information on the Aero rear brake situation and the subsequent damage to the bumper and wing, it also looks as if the cowl could be distorted having absorbed some of the impact.
The post Covid cost of spares is going to be a huge wake up call for such projects.

The Duct tape on the roof is not very alluring either.

Unless you can do all of this yourself it isn't viable no matter what the vendor might be thinking.
I shall watch with interest.

Just spotted this having spotted that Copart have a site just off the A1 and looking to see what they did. I was initially looking to see where sewage treatment plants were.

The LF-A was a very limited edition low volume model. It was easy to confuse with their cooking coupes.
They have become quite an underground hit.

If it had a horse or bull on the nose it would have a 1. on the front of the price!

Never even seen one, on the road or in a collection. What a waste.

There is one at the Lindsay Fox museum in Melbourne Australia.

When you buy one (well bought one as they are not available any more) you get assigned a personal mechanic that I have been told will travel the world to service your car whenever required. Very few mechanics world wide are LFA trained. Only 10 LFA's were bought to Australia and all sold to private collectors, my son (a Mechanic at Toyota) told me that a work mate met the Australia LFA mechanic on a training course once and thinks he is the one guy to personally look after those 10 cars. Some of those cars have changed hands in Australia for over $1M AUD so that price is pretty much spot on.

PaulyG, There is no doubt the issue of tribute, replica, or continuation cars is a contentious one. My Auburn is a 1968 build from fiberglass molds with original fittings taken from an original 1936 852 Auburn Boat Tail Speedster. A reasonable condition original in Australia would cost in excess of 2 million Australian dollars. Mine was a fraction of that and provides the benefit of modern performance and reliability with beautiful classic style.

Nice engine but those alloy wheels don't suit it IMHO, and that wooden dashboard is definitely not an improvement on the original.

In the 80's I had a boss who ran one. Cool as a cucumber. 635CSi was when the styling was approaching it's best for me. The IL6 was just creamy. The ride soft by modern standards but just so smooth and comfy.

Some of the UK prices for Japanese sporty motors are getting amazing, a Tommi Makinen Lancer EVO at Silverstone for example, there is one in the carpark by my office in mint condition, he paid $20000.00 NZ$ that is about it here, and as for Subarus - the special Imprezas are as common as muck here.

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 11/08/21 06:56 AM

Interesting the way that it seems some Japanese cars are increasing in value. I suspect it is just part of an evolutionary process..?

It seems us baby boomers have our interests and value set which differs from the younger folks by way of cars and much else. I suspect we are of our time just as the 20-40 year olds of today are of a different time, and in that regard they have been subjected to a whole different set of media influences...?

The arrival of a new young neighbour with automotive interests brought the rumble of a Nissan Skyline to my ears. As you might expect we made contact and the chat was automotive related... Pleasantries exchanged relative to each others cars, but in truth I was about as interested in his Nissan as he was in my Morgan.. OK so it had all sorts of chrome kit under the bonnet and carbon fibre distributed around, but it did not fire my imagination, and left me somewhat curious, and the main reason for my curiosity was that he suggested this Skyline might be worth £200k...!!! Also he apparently has it booked in at a cost of circa £10k to have the underside "detailed"..a task for which the company are fully booked until Summer next year.

Mightily confused relative to this set of plans and the evaluation thereof, I remembered that he spoke of a series of movies which it seems some of the now 20-40 year old generation were greatly impressed, and seem to have created an autoculture all of their own. The movies entitled "The Fast & Furious." Ever keen to learn I sat down to watch one such movie.... Yeah, well, not my cup of tea for sure, but it seems there may be quite a generational shift in old car values as the result of the young having their own and a totally different set of values...How that might work out with ones current "investments" I leave consideration in that regard to investors, whereas it seems best to enjoy what we can while we can.. ?

This is a rebuilt write off Gary that has had a thread of it’s own in the Aero section, it first appeared as a straight advert on the same site back in January but with no insurance details declared. So we made sure no unsuspecting TM’er fell into the hole.

Good pick up Richard. Thanks for keeping this on the straight and narrow.....

Still not sold at £53,500 "Reserve nearly met" statement - this has rumbled on since January now so we'll see where it pops up next time grin2

Oz, I have no idea whether my observations and the imagined effect might pan out as I expect. I kinda hope to be proven wrong given I have just splashed out on an ICE driven sports car..!

I visited two open air car park club gatherings of late, one for the classic car brigade and the other Porsche related, both were 99% attended by baby boomers. I often watch the TV Show "Bangers & Cash" where the recurring theme would seem to be built around mature individuals who`s pension pot may be dwindling somewhat and decided to cash in their "Classic," or indeed it may be the widow clearing out the garage of the dear departed and the auctioneers are there picking up the machine to transport it to their premises for the next auction, where again the majority of bidders seem to fall into the baby boomer category..?

Using no more than logic it seems to suggest that evolution will ever plays it`s part...?

I always think it is such a shame that a car gets driven less than 200 miles a year for 16 years, doesn't even get the engine warm!!!!!! Looking at the trim on the dials and the wood finish I don't think it has been that well cared for during it's long periods of non use.
Posted By: Lordofthewings

Re: Bring A Trailer - Morgans & Interesting vehicles - 23/09/21 06:58 PM

The car is located in Hurricane (the local folk pronounce it “Her-ah-kun”), about 300 miles south of Salt Lake City, and about 400 miles east of Bakersfield in California where I worked. It's a predominantly dry area, but apparently has only been located there since the summer of this year. I'm guessing the car was stored outside for part of its life. The woodwork looks pretty good to me, but there is corrosion in the engine bay, and the dial bezels certainly look like they have had some damp damage, possibly from when it lived in Florida. Plus there's some expensive wheel kerbing, and swirl marks in the paint.

I am always surprised with these replicas that they are able to legally use the Morgan logos as it has nothing to do with Morgan, surely this is misleading.

They are not: "Old" Morgan didn't seem to worry about IP protection, but "New" Morgan may not be so relaxed.

As Peter (Lord of the Rings) said, why?
The swing axle rear looks wrong, but it probably rides quite well.

The answer, of course, is the price. A Morgan like 4/4 for £12,000. Someone will bite.

Looks like more interest in a Morgan rally car...

Would be a fun drive .... but not a lot of '1960 Morgan' left in there.

Reminds me of the 'Harley Davidsons' so often advertised .... S&S motor, custom 5 speed tranny, custom frame, aftermarket forks, wheels and brakes ... not a single part seen the inside of the Harley factory, but still sold as one.

The Mog still has some 'original' bits so not quite as bad

How do you get to call (and register) this as a Morgan Plus 8 when it has a 1.8ltr 4 cylinder?

Not a lot of love for this one. US$U 10,000.00 bid with 1 day to go......

Just seen this. MMC should have the fake pulled from the auction. An abomination. And it's on a known Chassis number.

I must say they have been very cheeky with the marketing of this but it is registered as a Morgan so they claim.

SOLD US$ 10,000.00 but the auction commentary got very heated....

One of the last comments is my favourite: "With this car, you can attend events at seven different car clubs".
