This car is light, responsive, and fun! A narrow-bodied Moss Box (4Sp) Plus 8. The best of all Plus 8s. A Morgan model in high demand!
This car was restored in 2006. Its odometer now shows 54055miles.
This car was the MMC’s Earls Court Plus 8 show car in 1971. It was bought off the MMC’s display stand by the international racing legend Anatoly Arutunoff (winner of the 1981 SCCA H Production Class in a Morgan 4/4) and shipped to New York on the (then new) Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2).
Originally the car was all Silver with a Stone Leather interior. It is now Burgundy over Silver, with a Regency Red leather interior, Super Sports bucket seats, and red wool carpet. The weather equipment, top, tonneau and side curtains are all matching dark red Mercedes cloth, new in 2011.
Over the years, the car has been modified for safety, reliability, and performance. It currently has a Holley 4 barrel carburetor instead of the finicky SUs, Luminition pointless ignition for reliability and an Edelbrock intake manifold to improve throttle response. The car also has Koni tube shocks in the rear, with AVO tube shocks in the front. New twin exhaust pipes and mufflers were installed in 2013. The car runs cool, even in Florida! It received a new water pump in 2014. Also, there is a cooling radiator scoop up front with an aftermarket electric pusher fan behind the grill.
The car has a racing electrical power ‘Cut Off’ switch for safety and the fuel pump sending unit was refreshed in 2014. Just recently (in 2020) the car got a new battery and new ignition wires / plugs.
If interested, call Mike to discuss at (352) 455-9218. Car is in Central Florida.
Folks, Lee Gaskins sold his palatial house and garage and has downsized. He now needs to get the following Morgan parts and cars into the hands of others. In addition to those listed there are lots of used wire wheels, NOS chassis frame for a Morgan, miscellaneous hood, fenders and body parts. Also 2 Triumph engines and a Lotus twin cam engine.
Lee is looking for any reasonable offer on any of the car parts. Lee has not individually priced anything on purpose because he truly just needs to find new homes for all of the above.
Lee is also ready to sell his white 1967 DHC Morgan that he’s owned for 15 yrs. Current mileage is 28K. He’d like to sell it for $30,000.
He also has a 1994 Jaguar XJS 6 cyl convertible for sale – flamingo red w/tan interior last tagged in 2019. Mileage around 90,000. Also a rare 1947 MG TC EXU Export model. Lee’s owned this car since 1966.
Photos of the cars (and the listed parts!) are available if desired.
Gary and Judy Heck are helping Lee temporarily store these items, so contact Judy at email@example.com, 404-234-0948 if interested in any or all and she will put you in touch with Lee directly.

1964 Plus 4, No. 5610, TR4A, engine, Dual Zenith Stromberg CD175 (replaced original carbs in 1981. Carbs were mfg for 1969-1970 Jaguar XKE)
Approximately 17,700 miles
Purchased from David Chiles in High Point, NC in Dec. 1980. David rebuilt the car prior to my ownership in 1978, 10,000 miles.
Mechanicals restoration in 1982. Restored chrome parts, gauges, wiring harness, new teak dashboard, leather interior and exterior paint, some upgrades like PL1 headlights. New interior leather, new British wool carpeting. Frame coated with zinc chromate primer and gloss black Rustoleum. All fasteners replaced with SS. Finish was changed from BRG to dark blue with clear coat applied.
In 1996, at 14,000 miles in anticipation of a 3 year UK move, body panels removed, stripped own, checked for rust, re-primed and painted the current bright red with two clear coats. At the same time, the wood frame was inspected and showed no beginnings of dry rot, and the frame was repainted with an architectural gloss black epoxy based coating.
In 2015, at 17,000, rubber parts, gaskets, brake shoes, hoses, sliding pillars replaced. Engine completely rebuilt. New clutch, starter, speedo cable installed and Carbs rebuilt. Petronix electronic ignition installed. New gas tank and fuel sender installed.
In 2019, Chrome spoke wire wheels and knock offs replace the painted originals. New tubeless Michelin radials.
To bring the car to 100% – new carpets, a new temp gauge sender and the 60 year old leather could stand a refresh. The car has been garaged 100% since 1982 and I know has only seen the rain twice in the last 40 years.
I wouldn’t be selling it if it wasn’t for my wife’s concerns about driving it around a city like Charlotte. Huge SUV’s don’t even notice the little red roadster in the right lane next to them before switching lanes!
The car is vic of Charlotte NC. For pick up, the car would have to be paid for and bill of sale executed. Same for shipping. Buyer would have to arrange for shipping from North Carolina. Contact Seller for More Information or Pictures.

We all know of Lee Gaskins and his treasure trove of Morgan items! Well he is now willing to part with a few of his favorite toys!
Lee’s son helped him make the video. I suspect a video was the right way to go as an enumerated list would be exhaustive!!
Lee would love to find a buyer that wanted it all, however, I suspect he will entertain other options.
The Moss Box Plus 8 is gone but Lee still has a totally restored white Super Sport , a Drop Head Coupe and a 37 MGTC. You might also note the 1952 Morgan Flat Rad project in the video. (Clink Link Below to watch the video.)
Morgan Plus 8 3.5L Engine – Professionally Rebuilt in 2019. 3.5L Block with mostly all new parts. 4,000$ (The heads (new) are worth that!!) Comes with 1 free original +8 radiator and 1 free original +8 steering wheel.
Universal 4 Car Dollies for sale. $50 for the set of 4. Includes 4 free jack stands.
Free delivery for any item is not included. Buyer pays postage if shipped. However, Pick Up vic Sarasota Florida is free.
The factory stopped making the 4 Seater a few years ago, so only the vintage 4 Seaters are available now. There are many reasons to love the Plus 4, 4 Seater. I know I certainly do. And, this is a good one! $20,000
