Hi All,

I'm jumping over here to the Morgan site from the MG Midget forum with a question about the new Morgans that are supposed to go on sale here in the states later this year or early next. The question I have is, will I fit? More specifically I am looking for interior dimensions; seat face to height at the top of the windscreen and face of seat back to the pedal assembly (throttle). I'm 6' 1" and can fit in many cars (owning a 68 Sprite shows that) my concern is how well will I fit.

Thanks in advance for all your time and trouble.

Sam.

Sam,

It depends to some degree on how long your legs are vs your trunk length. I know plenty of people who are over 6 feet tall who drive Morgans. The new model being imported will not necessarily be the same as the old models I have at my disposal for measuring (bodies are similar but seats are different). I suggest you contact one of the dealers to ask if they have any measurements on the new cars. They might have the particulars already. I think Northshore Sportscars in IL is still a Morgan dealer (Norb Bries: 847-247-0447) and he must be at least your height. Larry Eckler (Morgan Motors of New England, in NY: 518-329-3877) is a couple of inches taller than you.

I'd expect that you will. I'm 6' and have a pair of classic Morgans (a 1953 flat rad 2-seater and a 1961 4-seater) and although, like my wife's bug-eye Sprite, it takes a bit of effort to get in, once I'm in, they're both pretty driveable. Recently I saw one of the current body style non-US Morgan's and they are visibly wider and more open for the driver than my classics. If you can drive a Sprite, you should be OK.
