In the Malvern factory, Charles Morgan, the temple's heir and guardian, piously respects the original spirit of Morgan. Certainly, forays into a resolutely modern world have led to the creation of the Aero 8 models with this strange and quirky physique, but the death of the Plus 8 and its antique Buick V8 Rover no longer passing the draconian pollution standards, forced Morgan to review his copy for his timeless roadster. It is therefore the Jaguar 3.0l V6 (or rather Ford origin) that powers the Morgan Tourer V6 that we present today.
The specimen we are presenting is a very rare Tourer that can accommodate four occupants under its thick alpaca top. Delivered new in France in August 2007, it has the distinction of having been ordered from the factory in its two shades of blue to recall the Bugattis that its first owner particularly liked. Maintained at Garage Bobin, official Morgan distributor in the East of France, our specimen has a clear history and regular monitoring as evidenced by its regularly stamped service book. Eager to participate in the rallies offered by his club, its current and second owner wanted to combine the best of both worlds with a vintage car but without the inconveniences associated with its driving. He therefore took possession of it in April 2015 when it had a little over 18,000 km on the odometer. Now showing just over 39,000 km, it is offered for sale with all its original accessories (tonneau cover, soft top cover and side-screen in their storage), books, manuals and duplicate keys. In almost flawless condition, everything indicates that this Tourer was handled with care and scrupulously maintained by Vintage Services in Asnière.
During our test, we were overwhelmed by the flexibility and the beautiful elasticity of its 236 hp engine. The revs are straightforward and enhanced by an evocative sound. Handling the top is simple and above all, the two rear seats allow the choice of leaving with luggage or taking friends! Here is a terribly endearing car enjoying a well-extended network in France and playing both scores perfectly. It will suffice to recall to convince you that the Morgans are a protected species whose prices remain high thanks to the policy of the factory, which guarantees a stable and unchanging rating ...
