Of course it is a Morgan!
How anyone could confuse it with a Riley is beyond me!

Sorry Bomber.
A mean trick really!
It is actually a scrapped Triumph Vitesse which I re-bodied back in 1984. Just because I like the looks of those similar MGs. (TF model)
With a 2 litre engine it is still a match in performance for most modern cars of its dimensions - and a hell of a lot more fun!
Even many MG enthusiasts get confused by it.
Which reminds me. It is due for its 39th MOT in this guise at the end of this month.
Jim.

TF not TC, which had separate headlamps.
 Although often called a "Kit Car" it is not really. It is almost totally Triumph Vitesse with a different body rather than a kit of parts sourced from different places.

 Perhaps this car could be called a "Kit Car" because only the chassis and running gear were made under the makers name it carries. The body was designed and made by Park Ward.
 By the way, the bloke holding the door open was my dad and when he did not drive it I generally did!

It is only 1600cc and it is aircooled and it could be used in a bike but I must resist the temptation to fill a biker site up with car pictures. Anyone still got their dinkies? I restore mine. No Sorn, no mot, no insurance and easier to keep indoors.
Where the photo was taken also parked were expensive European sports cars whose owners take offence when I ask them what they made it from. Probably drugs.
