1990 Morgan Plus 8

1990 Morgan Plus 8

The Morgan Plus 8 is a sports car built by British car makers Morgan from 1968. Its instant and enduring popularity has been credited with saving the company and keeping the company famous during the 36 years of its manufacture. Among Morgan enthusiasts, it is deeply associated with Peter Morgan, the owner behind its design. The prototype Plus 8 used a Rover V8 engine itself a re-engineered version of the Buick/Oldsmobile 215 motor renamed the 3.5L by Rover. At the end of 1983, the company offered an EFI version using a Bosch L-Jetronic based system. With the added power 204 bhp and low weight, the Plus 8 was, according to the magazine road tests of the day, able to beat a Porsche up to 90 mph.

 

This is a most traditional Morgan Plus 8 featured here in Connaught green with biscuit leather interior. The car has been owned for the last 10 years by a true Morgan enthusiast who became unable to drive it any longer. We have just recently acquired it from his family and brought it here to our shop. We have given this handsome Plus 8 a good going over in our shop and have declared it ready for a new owner. It has the Rover 3.5 liter aluminum V8 coupled with 5 speed manual transmission and standard alloy wheels. The motor has been retrofitted with a 4 bbl Holley carb for added performance and an aluminum radiator fitted for improved cooling. The car has optional luggage rack, badge bar, wind wings, mohair tonneau cover in tan, and leather bonnet strap. It also has a tan mohair canvas top with matching side curtains and it has a clean CARFAX!
