MORGAN PLUS 8 (1968-) CAR HISTORY

Car review on MORGAN PLUS 8

When supplies of the 2138cc Triu mph four-cylinder engine dried up in the late 60s, Morgan were left without a high-performance engine for their flagship Plus 4 model. Help was on the horizon, however, in the form of Rover's all-alloy 3.5-litre V-eight derived from a discarded Buick design of the early 60s and recently introduced in the big P5B saloon and coupe. Light, compact and powerful (165 bhp), it was ideal for the job and transformed the Morgan into a real road-burner: top speed leapt to more than 120 mph (193 kph) with stunning rapid acceleration matched by very few road cars. Renamed the Plus 8, it looked at first glance identical to its predecessor but in fact had a slightly longer wheelbase and wheel track and subtly different body contours. The most obvious change was the light alloy wheels but, underneath, the sliding pillar front suspension and leaf-sprung live rear axle remained — along with the rock-hard vintage-style ride.


It was an immediate success, with more than 4,000 built to date, though never at a rate of more than 15 per week. Steel bodywork was standard — with ash framing, of course - but there was an optional sports lightweight version from 1975. Early cars used the noisy, old-fashioned Moss gearbox familiar on Jaguar saloons, but from 1972 the Rover four-speed transmission was used. The five-speed unit from the SD1 Rover saloon was used from 1977. Fuel injection was introduced in 1984 and rack-and-pinion steering in 1986. The latest cars have a 3.0-litre version of the Rover engine, giving 190 bhp.


As with the 4/4, demand for this anachronistic car remains healthy, with awaiting list of several years.
