I got an email the other day from Philippa in Queensland. Sadly her father had away and she was looking to find a home for his rather lovely Series 1 Morgan.
As I glanced through the pictures that she had sent me, it dawned on me that I had met Philippa’s father and this Morgan at the 2013 Gympie Muster and the car made a big impression on me then along with its elderly, immaculately turned out driver. I dug back thru my files and found this picture of my green Plus 4 parked along side the blue Series 1 in question. The red Flat Rad in the picture belongs to VICMOG members Brian and Kerry.
So here are the details if you would like to give this beautiful Morgan a home.
