Morgan Plus 8 – 1984

Morgan +8, year 1984.

Colour red metallic with a magnolia (pale beige) leather interior trimmed with red piping.
Beige soft-top and side-screens.
This magnificent Morgan +8 is one of the rare vintage carburetted models.
With the birth of the Morgan +8 in 1968 one of the most exciting roadgoing up to that date saw the light of day.
The story started with the purchase of the GM/Buick V8 engine by Rover.
This small-block 3,5 Litre engine was re-engineered by Rover.
The all-aluminium, compact, and light power unit, delivering just shy of 190 bhp in standard form, proved to be the perfect engine for the ultra-light (1876 Lb/850 kg) Morgan +8 which was built on a reinforced Morgan +4 chassis.
In 1976 the chassis was widened, and wider wheels were fitted.
The evolution of the Rover V8 powered Morgan +8 ended in the year 2004 as the Rover V8 engine was discontinued.
The Morgan +8 is an icon, and the early carburetted versions are the purest of them all.
This wonderful example was sold new in Belgium.
The car is in very good condition with normal signs of previous use.
The Morgan features a Holley ‘four-barrel’ carburettor and the wonderful original alloy wheels shod with 205/60-15 tyres. This engine runs and sounds perfectly, and the 5-speed gearbox shifts very well. This is a highly desirable driver car for the experienced motorist!
