Chassis no. SA94420K2K0004165. Blue with blue cloth top over beige leather. RHD. 2.0/150hp Ford GDI four, Mazda 5-speed, 16-inch wire wheels, rear overriders, chrome interior mirror, door pockets, Moto-Lita woodrim steering wheel, walnut dashboard, sun visors, badge bar, spare wheel, luggage rack, leather suitcase.

Evaluation: Offered from The Cayman Island Motor Museum Collection. The 110 Edition celebrated Morgan’s 110th year as a carmaker. This one is represented with around £2800 of factory extras and shows only 173 km (107 miles). Not a single surface on this car looks used. The seat leather is of the highest quality and the chrome wheels have incredible depth. Even the luggage is of the highest order. Delightful in every way.

Bottom Line: Morgan introduced a redesigned Plus Four last year but, hey, this is a Morgan. They all look and drive like they have for years. This was therefore a chance to jump the waiting list (which can range from a few months to several years) for one of these charming hand-built English anachronisms with an essentially new car. And the winning bidder did just that, getting the immediate gratification of a shiny fresh Morgan and doing so at a several thousand pound discount compared to ordering it straight from the manufacturer.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
