It could well prove the death knell for the pure collectors and not the drivers, they become worthless if you remove the potential drivability innocent

I hadn't thought about that but it's a good point with recent trends.

Well given that 95 out of 100 were ordered with Automatic gearboxes would indicate that this is / was the preference for this type of car which is a tourer drive. I thought I would have preferred manual but now having the auto have found it does suit the Max which has a different personality to the more wild manual analogue S1 in my experience so far...but both are like dating a supermodels camera
The Max love was and still is the first car I would buy if I won the Lotto happy3 now a lucky lotto winner has the choice of 3 very low mileage examples out of 19 in the country..2023 the year of good things.

Having driven both, I chose the paddle shift/auto box on my Aero 8. With such a large and lazy engine, an auto is easier and I the manual doesn't add anything. I also found 1st very short in the manual - you could take off in 2nd, but it felt a faff. I regard the big Morgans as cruisers rather than racers - riding along on a sea of torque rather than trying to wring out every last ounce of performance.

I agree, the S2 with a manual box is a car you can really get into driving and matching revs up and down etc. First is a pain with a bit of rev hang and the clutch angle. Not much space to relax your leg/foot. The ZF 6sp auto on the Coupe does match it very well and using the manual tip changes at anything up to 90% go is lovely if you do want to row it along.

It is surprising how different the character of two cars built on the same chassis is. Mk1 even more so I guess.


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