Please can you share your knowledge of changing from 7 to 4 leaf rear leaf springs?
Hello Phil, I'd be interested in that too - we have a 1969 4/4 4-seater (7-leaf springs).
Thanks

Re: supersports

it did not sell Well regardless of Factory SuperSports or not - it seems to be a lot of car for the money. I doubt you could build it for that price. https://www.silverstoneauctions.com/events/2020-auctions/the-silverstone-classic-live-online-auction-2020/the-silverstone-classic-live-online-auction...

Not sure which topic to put this under – ‘older morgans’, ‘magazines’… but as BDC is imminent I put it here.
Leigh, it doesn't matter where, as long as you POST :lol:

But whilst on the topic of BDC, does anyone know if there are to be spectators a la Donington ?

Thanks

Re: Special Bodied 1953 +4 VNO 600

Now tell me that this isn't the car that VNO 600 is based on ! It's a 1950 Ferrari 195 Inter, coachwork by Touring of Milan (specialists in Superleggera, they invented it in 1936) they made just 3 in this style, and by 1950 Ferrari had only made 100 or so cars, total. The car is for sale at the top ...

Re: 1969 Plus 8 356AK92

Mary, you will know this early +8 is now significant, not just because it was an early Moss box car in competition – but it was being used in Internationally designated events. Without knowing it Savoye and company laid the foundations which allowed the Moss box cars to qualify for their FIA HTP (Hi...

Re: Special Bodied 1953 +4 VNO 600

Thanks Mark, this +4 is just not well enough known ! There is a surprise in the tale too -'Vino' as VNO 600 is known has a twin sister - based on a Jowett Jupiter chassis ! The Jowett was started soon after Clarkson's Morgan, but the build stalled and it was not completed until 1957. I'm hoping to p...
