He cut the doors down as well,I thought it would detract and not add value.

- you have really upset my neighbour now doh

I have seen these photo's before and whilst I admire the skill involved ,I'm afraid it just doesn't work for me visually.

Funnily enough, I did consider some LED circular driving lights in new 'brake cooling ducts' as on the GTN's - but common sense (unusual ,I know) and cowardice at punching large holes in the bodywork prevailed ooo

Bye the bye Kev., I hope your post re. 'Door Droop' was not a euphemism for any other potential problems of a more 'personal' nature...... innocent

Might look better if he blanked off the original headlights.

I've nominated Kev for a Morgan Awareness course instead of fining him for Marque stupidity.

This was for sake at Great British Classics (or similar) for ages.

I just think it’s an absolute abomination and beggars the question WHY?

I can't help but agree, it's not pretty is it!

Now the lights, I've often wondered if anyone had put spots on the front of an Aero? Now I know and as bad as the headlights are and they don't seem any better on the S4, I think it's a case of put up with them and eat more carrots. carrot

It looks reversable, I could live with the cut down doors maybe....

It looks like a cartoon car and that it is about to talk any second. Pug ugly I think.

I saw it just after it was completed at the Buxton Mog event. A clear example of 2 + 2 = 3.

It might be an optical illusion but that grill looks a bit damaged.

I always thought those headlights were an appalling design fault. Perhaps they would look better swapped and moved to the outside of the mudguards.

Love the Clarence look

Love my S2 with its "individual" look but that's not what I want to see on my drive. Each to their own.

Agree. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but it looks like a kit car to me.

I believe the original doors are part of the sale, so perhaps the original cowl is as well and hey presto reversed.

If I recall correctly, this Aero was originally marketed as The Ultimate Roadster - there are various old threads on it (you can search for them) - and the comments don't seem to change much.

The cut-away top doors were trialled by a few after market companies but Simmonds took the car the farthest with this particular Aero and modified various other visual elements.

Here is one of those threads, when only the rear was visible: Ultimate Roadster / modified Morgan Aero

Well the only positive about the rear view picture in that thread is that you can’t see the front

Does my bum look big in this ? Ah well my dear...it is a small bathroom after all innocent

I guess it makes sense back then.

There was a new modern handling chassis and v8. People liked the trad styling more than the newer cross-eyed number.
I guess Morgan eventually answered it with the Aero based Plus 8.
