THE MORGAN 4/4

An island of constancy in an automotive sea of change, the Morgan Motor Company looks set to continue building its unique Vintage-style cars well into the 21st Century. Indeed, the Morgan 4/4 is the world's longest running production vehicle, today's version being recognisably the same car as its 1936 forebear and none the worse for that as the ever-lengthy waiting list would seem to confirm. After formative years spent in the drawing office of the Great Western Railway, engineer H F S Morgan progressed to automobile manufacture, showing his first three-wheeled car at Olympia in 1910.

The first four-wheeled, four-seater Morgan appeared in 1936 powered by Coventry Climax's 1,122cc, four-cylinder, inlet-over-exhaust engine. Two years later a special Climax-engined sports model competed at Le Mans, qualifying for the Biennial Cup. A special Standard 1,267cc overhead-valve four-cylinder engine was introduced for the 1939 season and would continue to power the 4/4 model to 1950. Reintroduced with Ford 100E power in 1955 after a five-year hiatus, the 4/4 was regularly updated with more modern engines and currently is powered by the 1.6-litre Ford Sigma unit.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Morgan 4/4 Series IV, sporting a fitting Combination of British Racing Green over a Tan leather interior, underwent a two-year restoration addressing both mechanical and cosmetic aspects of this lithe British roadster. Upon its completion in 2009, this car was shown at the Wheels of Britain Show in Pheonix, Arizona, where it took top honors, a feat it repeated in 2011. This 4/4 is complete with its original side curtains, jack, tool kit, and lubrication gun. Used sparingly since its award-winning restoration, this well-sorted Morgan abounds with potential to be shown or driven spiritedly by its next owner.
