MOTOR SPORT visits the oldest and most unique sports-car factory in the World IN THE PAST I have paid several visits to the Morgan Motor Company at Malvern Link in Worcestershire. I went there after the war to take delivery of a new Morgan 4/4. When its gearbox seized up and there were no spares for it I went down again, towing the stricken 4/4 and part-exchanging it for a Vanguard-engined Plus-4...

The cars of Betty Haig

Described to the Editor in a recent interview Late in November I drove out of Hampshire and across the rolling Berkshire downs, bleak under a blanket of grey cloud, to Shellingford, to talk to Betty Haig, grand niece of Field-Marshal the Earl Haig, K.G., G.C.B., O.M., about the cars she has owned, and driven in rallies, races and sprints. As I talked to this keen lady racing motorist in a study...

At Earls Court

Once again little inspiration was to be gained from the Earls Court Motor Show, overshadowed as it was by the immediately preceding Continental events, stealers of new model announcements. Full frontals were banned, clothing, however scanty, making a titillating reappearance. Strikes have become a part and parcel of Earls Court and this time Motor Sport's own stand was affected seriously by the...

Test of time – Ferrari 308 GT4

We take an original test report and leave you to judge if the assessment was correct. THE FERRARI DINO 308 GT4, introduced last Autumn is more than a big brother to the familiar, beautiful little 246 GT. It is an entirely new car, the few things in common being restricted to the steering wheel and alloy road wheels and it is particularly significant in Ferrari folklore in being the first...

New cars: Healey 3000 replicas

Evolution theory The arguments begin again ... when is a replica not a replica? Peter Thorp went through this with the GT40, and Brian Angliss with the AC MkIV, now Geoffrey Healey faces the dilemma as he presents the Healey Silverstone and Mk IV models, visually resembling the classic six-cylinder 3000 model but totally re-engineered around Rover's 3.5-litre V8 and five-speed transmission. "I...

Rover 800

Of all the models launched during Austin Rover's long and painful haul back from the brink of oblivion, none is more important than the new Rover 800 which was launched on July 10th In order to ensure future growth and development a medium-sized make like ARG needs a catlike the 800 both as a flagship for the entire range and because a luxury car generates more profit than a small car. Though it...

All in a Year's Work

In which the Deputy Editor reviews his 1978 motoring activities Some loose reflections on my activities in 1978, preparatory to writing this by now annual review, recalled something of a grey year. In fact I was at the point where I would have gladly shelved the task completely had not the magazine deadline encroached and visions of empty pages goaded me on. Reluctantly, I sat down with pen in...

The Gilbern

How it is Made : How it Goes The Gilbern GT should be well known to regular readers of Motor Sport, because we described a visit to their factory in June 1963 and published road-test reports on the M.G.-B-engined version in January 1964 and January 1965. Since those days the Gilbern has been restyled, and re-powered with the 3-litre V6 Ford engine. It remains, however, a fibre-glass-bodied four-...

Cobra parts put back the venom into the wildest snake of all

THE KEEPERS of Chessington Zoo in Surrey will tell you that a Cobra is a venomous hooded snake. Elsewhere in Chessington village Cobra has a different meaning, for there Brian Angliss tends to the Cobra which was sired by AC Cars, Carroll Shelby and the Ford Motor Company, the wildest, most venomous production road car produced this side of World War II and, in its Mk. III 427 (7-litre) form,...
