Morgan Back in the USA

For the first time since 2005, Morgan will be able to import a traditional bodied Morgan back into the USA. These will likely be the +4 and V6 Roadster models. The latter will be offered either as a 2 seater or a 4 seater. Yes, you will now be able to get a new Morgan 4 seater!

Last December, the Congress passed the Transportation Bill which included a segment for “replica vehicles”. Any vehicle not produced within the last 25 years along with an EPA certified engine will now be allowed to be registered as a “replica vehicle”. They are exempt from the standard safety regulations (airbags, side impact crash test, 50mph rear crash test, etc) which kept Morgan out of the US market for the last decade.

The EPA has yet to set their specific regulations (they had 12 months to do so once the law was signed) and once that is done, Morgan can then develop their engine management system to comply with those regulations.

We expect to be able to accept orders and deposits beginning this summer, however it would be a good idea to get on our wait list! You can do that either by e-mail, phone or registering on our website right from the home page.

Any questions? Please feel free to give us a call! Best to Everyone!
