Purchased by the vendors late husband in 2011 after spotting an advert in Classic Autojumble, it was described as in need of some tlc. Little unfortunately is known of it's early history, but it would appear to have been re-built from an early '60s Morgan in 1979 / 81. There are photos of the rebuild which features a new chassis amongst other things and seems to have been carried out to a high standard.
Once the Morgan was back in his garage, the new owner set about bringing it back to its former glory. Being an engineer by trade there wasn't much which he couldn't accomplish himself, so running gear was re-furbished , body work was repainted in cream and maroon and all of the small jobs were completed to his exacting standards. The interior was completely recovered including door cards, seats and new carpets. Unfortunately, it was hardly used once back on the road and with its last MOT certificate expiring in 2016, hasn't been on the road since then. It has though been dry stored and regularly started, up until the vendor's husband's death earlier this year. Upon its arrival at Bonhams MPH, it didn't take us long to fire this lovely Morgan back into life, and it now runs and drives a treat. Currently fitted with a 4-speed gearbox, the spares box includes a 5 speed MK9 Ford gearbox, bellhousing and clutch package as well as a few other spares. Overall this Morgan presents beautifully and is certain to give its new owner lots of pleasurable driving.
