Much admired, this top of the range V8 is stunning in bright red with excellent black leather upholstery fitted factory alloys and luggage rack.

The vendor has supplied the following background to the car:

The Morgan Plus8 is fitted standard 3500cc V8 engine with 5 speed gearbox.  First registered 01/07/1978.

The car was four years old when I purchased on 22/03/82 at 42,000 on registration DEC371S.  Reg transfer to 974 LJ in 1985 then to BWY 571S before selling in 1997. I had the Plus8 for 15 years.

Re-purchased on  05/02/2006.

The Plus8 has been used for Speed Hill climbs and Sprints since I purchased it.

in 1981 we were 1st overall in the Morgan Northern Speed Series championships, since then we just enter local events.  The last event was the YMC Keith Pattison Sprint at Middlesborough Race Way in June 2013.
