This is a fantastic example of Morgans Roadster 3.0 V6 Series One registered new in 2004. Only 11,900 miles careful miles from new, this vehicle has rarely seen rain and has had dry summer use only. Splendid car, ,First registered in 2004 by Berrybrook Morgan in Exeter this car was sold to a local elderly lady. The husband already owned a Morgan Plus8 and as she was not driving the Plus8 very much, they agreed that she should own a Morgan of her own,Over the first few years of ownership they toured Devon, Cornwell, and France in the two cars, being active members of the local Morgan Club. However, with the onset of old age both cars received little use and were subsequently sold back to Berrybrook Morgan, who were happy to purchase cars they had serviced and known from new. I have consequently been in contact with the first owners and they remembered this car very fondly. ,Berrybrook Morgan then sold in 2017 I then purchased the car in 2018 as a Morgan Owner Club member it was the best around at the time and still is now i.e. all original, never had nor needed any paintwork. Three owners from new.,The Roadster 3.0 V6 replaced the Rover 3.9 Plus8, as the V8 was struggling to meet new emissions regulations. The 3.0 V6 24 valve engine jointly developed by Jaguar Ford with input via Porsche is considered by many to be the sweet spot of the traditional Morgan range.,It has 226 hp approx. 36 hp more than the Plus8 and the engine being shorter is set further back in the chassis importantly the engine g box is also 100kg lighter than the Rover units means it also handles better. Mated to a ZF 5 speed gearbox the car is happy burbling around in high gears and low revs, however, it is very quick, when you want it to be 0 60mph in under 5 seconds This modern engine will also give 33 mpg in this very light car. ,This car has the full aluminium body, galvanised chassis and of course Morgans famous ash wood frame that the alloy panels cloth .

It has matching full tonneau and spare wheel cover also finished in mohair to match the hood. The stainless steel wheels sparkle.,Everything works on the car as it should, I have looked after the car myself and being a Rolls Royce engineer, have been very fussy with it. My own recorded running report shows that the oil has been changed 3 times in 1,300 miles with the best quality fully synthetic oils. There is a large history file with the carfrom new.,With Morgans range of new CX chassis cars now fully introduced and priced at 68 95K, traditional Morgan production has now ceased.
