Technical Tips & Tricks

Morgans being bespoke cars are special and different with components and systems not found in any other car manufacturer’s products. In some ways Morgan resembles today’s large car makers with components sourced from a huge range of countries.

For example over the years Morgan has sourced engines from Matchless. JAP, Coventry Climax, Standard, Ford, Fiat, Rover, up to the present BMWs. As such Morgan owners need to find garages and mechanics that are familiar with the specific engines along with gearboxes, steering, and braking systems. Within our membership there are owners in various parts of NZ who can recommend local service companies with the prerequisite skills and knowledge, or may well have information and knowledge that will help you with your Morgan.

Product & Service Recommendations

Renovo UK

We have used the Soft top range of cleaner, reviver and sealer on our mohair soft top with excellent results. It takes a couple of hours to apply the three products, but the black top looked like brand new when finished. We used the Vinyl cleaner and ultra proofer on the vinyl soft top on the 2012 Morgan 4/4; and for the ultimate test revived the vinyl soft top on the 1939 4-4 with outstanding results. They also produce a plastic window polish that made a window in a 15 year old soft top clear again.
