 Picture by John Sheally who added: Peter Morgan's Ferrari on the rack at Morgan Motor Company, LTD. Maurice Owen had it on the rack changing the clutch assembly. As I watched Maurice at work he had pulled the old one out and saw that it used the same clutch as the Morgan Plus-8 which was in company stock . He had told Peter that it was the same but Peter said he wanted the clutch pack direct from Ferrari which was ordered and was being installed as Maurice told me the story, ending with... "I'll never understand, as the Ferrari parts cost 4 times what we had in stock"...
