In 2010 New Elms acquired the rights to manufacture and distribute the legendary Rutherford Engineering range
of suspension and chassis upgrade kits and to distribute Rutherford/AVO adjustable Morgan shock absorbers.
Dave Rutherford became part of Morgan folklore back in the 1970’s designing and developing the necessary modifications to convert a Morgan from lever-arm rear shock absorbers to TELESCOPICS and was also a pioneer in the development of SCUTTLE ROLL BARS, PANHARD RODS and ANTI TRAMP BARS for Morgans.
Most of these innovations were later imitated by the Morgan Factory and incorporated in later cars.
This is what one of our customers said:
“…The car is totally and completely transformed. The manner in which the car drives and handles is leagues above the standard factory settings. So much so that you have to ask the question, ‘why aren’t all traditional Morgans set up like this…..”
Does your Morgan bottom out when laden?
Feel vague when cornering and braking?
Not give you confidence when driven fast?
If "Yes!” then a Rutherford modified suspension is the answer!
We can supply, and fit if necessary, a variety of set-ups to upgrade your Morgan whatever the age.
