Re: B D C

I have been going to the Bentley Drivers Club meeting as a spectator since the early 1970's and only missed 2 or 3 meetings. When I looked this morning on the Silverstone website it advertised the BDC meeting for 22 August but stated that no spectators were allowed....same applies to Club members......

Re: OCO 738

Alan, Been a very wet morning here in Lancashire today so took to reading "The Heritage Years 1954 - 1960. By coincidence I saw a picture of OCO 738, taken during the MCC Exeter Trial, 8 January 1960. It was part of a 3 car team called "The Union Jacks" separate car colours being red, white and blue...

Re: KUT 808 - Looking for my +4 DHC

Good evening Andy, I have posted on this forum only occasionally in the past but I do visit regularly and read the various posts. I think it is a great idea to have MHR as part of this forum and hopefully it will stimulate interest. No doubt Machiel Kalf will be making mention of this forum in his m...

Re: Mystery Mog

Over the weekend I just happened to be reading "Morgan Sports cars, The Lawrence Tune Years 1961 - 1964". In the 1964 year section of the book, page 343 for those interested , there is a paragraph on John Maclay. I quote from the book " At Brands Hatch the car went wide at Clearways and the back hit...

Re: Mystery Mog

I can't see anywhere that the car is confirmed as a 4/4 or +4 but I think we are talking a racing +4 ? Take a look under the bonnet and it looks very much like a TR engined car to me !!!

Re: The Pom

Hello Mark, Trust you are well and the early +4 rebuild is progressing. I was interested to see Bob Bulls' photos of the 1960 +4, UUX 209. Nice clear pictures. Yes, like you I am slightly confused by the year of the car and the reference to being a "bustle back". I have a 1956 "bustle back" and my u...

Re: Bonnets and Cowl

Morning Mark,

Hope you are well.

I can see some family support is needed here.

Surely the price goes up not down.......you can see more of the road with the low line, particularly useful for you racers !!!!

All best.

Re: Morgan +4 Super Sports and +4+

Hi Simon, Ken Hill's book lists the S/S, production numbers 1 to 104, as per factory records. He also lists "Plus 4 Lawrencetune-engined cars, which, for various reasons, are not regarded by the Morgan Motor Company as true Super Sports - factory record". There are 11 cars listed in this category, p...
