THE MORGAN PLUS 4

Introduced in 1950, the Standard Vanguard-engined Plus 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? – the frame underwent extensive alteration, gaining in both wheelbase and track dimensions while being considerably strengthened. The centrally mounted Moss gearbox was carried over from the 4/4. A few years later – in 1953 – Morgan began the process of updating the car's appearance. With supplies of the old flat-fronted radiator and separate headlamps coming to an end, Morgan opted for a front-end makeover that would eventually produce the rounded radiator cowl appearance that Morgan retains today.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

A beautifully presented example, this attractive sporting Morgan was the subject of an older restoration. Finished in understated but sporting grey bodywork with red fenders and interior trimmed in black leather and fronted by a richly grained panel of wood trim, this Plus Four receives its get-up-and go from a Triumph TR3 motor that is fitted with hotter twin SU carburetors, a performance, custom cold-air intake manifold. A sports exhaust system exiting just ahead of the rear wheels has also been fitted.

Starring out over the wood-rimmed steering wheel at the ivory gauges and long hood, the classic Morgan look and feel that has worked so well for the past 80+ years is well apparent. While the restoration has aged, it presents well with a comfy, inviting interior and a clean and tidy engine bay. Completing the package is a full tonneau cover for interior protection when the car is parked.

Reportedly running and driving well, these cars are consistently reliable mounts for road tours and club events.
