The Morgan Plus 4

The Morgan Plus 4, produced between 1950 and 1969 until its reintroduction in 1985, was a larger, quicker version of the company's popular 4/4 model. Fitted with a 2088cc inline four-cylinder engine sourced from Standard Vanguard upon the model's introduction, it received several updates during its long model run, retaining its classic styling cues throughout the duration of its lifespan.

The post-1956 models are really the most representative of the breed, and better to drive with the significant benefit of Triumph-sourced inline four-cylinders borrowed from the Triumph TR3, and later the TR4.


The Motorcar Offered

This nicely restored Plus Four was acquired by the vendor from Southern California Morgan specialists Morgan West in July 2008. A long-term Southern California car, it has a carefully documented service and restoration history going back to when the prior owner purchased the car in 2000.

Finished in British Racing Green with black leather inside and a black top, it features the sportiest body style available in 1958 with its two seats and windowless cut-down doors. In the last five years, over $20,000 has been spent on mechanical and cosmetic restoration with receipts on file for a complete engine, transmission, and brake rebuild as part of that total. During the rebuild, the TR3 motor was uprated to TR4 specification with more horsepower and a higher redline. The sum of the invoices since the turn of the millennium totals nearly $30,000—evidence of the methodical care and attention this Morgan has received.

Complete with its folding top and side curtains, a full complement of service history, and an assortment of Morgan-related ephemera, it is a useable and enjoyable example of a model that remains so popular that it is still in production today.
