1983 5-speed model it the one to have.
Apart from the fact that the car is superb, it has a notable history. I'm going to take liberties here and tell the story as I remember it.
Mike has done many things in his life. One of which was being in Beirut when the 2 factions were shooting at each other. He had managed to get the family out but now he needed to drive the Morgan out. Packed with the minimum of "stuff" he set off down the main double road through town. One faction on the left of the road and the other on the right. Oh - did i mention they were shooting at each other?
Neither side appreciated Morgans so there was no let-up in the fire as he set off at speed to make his getaway. As he is still with us you will gather that he made it. Set off across the desert if I remember and got to the border. However - he did discover holes all along the left hand side of the car from behind the seat through the back mudguard . The holes remained there as a "badge of honour" for years - until he had them filled not long ago. But he did leave the expanded bits on the inside as evidence.
That's one of the best Morgan stories I know
