The Morgan Motor Company
Morgan has long been a niche manufacturer always producing cars that were a little different from the norm. From their early Vee-twin engined three wheelers to the four-wheeled models such as the car offered here, the common thread has been fun, sporting motoring in the old British tradition, for a relatively modest outlay. Those basic characteristics have ensured the brand's enduring appeal.
Morgan's first four-seater, four-wheeled sports car - the Standard 10-engined 4/4 - appeared in 1937, forming the mainstay of production up to 1950 when it was superseded by the larger and more powerful Standard Vanguard-engined Plus Four. With 70% more power than the 4/4 courtesy of the 2,088cc Vanguard engine, the +4 represented a major step forward in the evolution of the Morgan sports car. Although the traditional chassis layout was retained - what else would one expect from Morgan? - it did undergo extensive alteration, growing in both wheelbase and track dimensions while being considerably strengthened. The centrally mounted Moss gearbox was carried over from the 4/4. The new cars soon proved popular and were even successful in competition, the company winning the team award at the RAC International Rally in 1951.

This exceptional Morgan Plus Four must be one of the most beautifully restored examples around.

The striking color combination of black over red truly suits the classic British sports car very well. Recently serviced by a renowned East Coast service facility with expertise in British motorcars, this is a fine example that would make for thoroughly enjoyable summer motoring.
