Description

The most quintessentially British of all British sports cars is the Morgan. These cars have been built in limited quantities at Malvern Link Sussex since 1912. Early Morgans were three-wheelers, with the first four-wheel car not introduced until 1935 with its styling evolving at a glacial's pace. The steel coachwork is still shaped over a wood subframe and the 1961 Morgan has retained the classic lines of the earlier cars. It is uncompromisingly a sports car; an open two-seater that is light, nimble, and a thrill to drive. This Plus 4 is equipped with a strong Triumph TR3 engine.

Privately owned since January 2005, this Morgan has been meticulously restored from the frame up over the past several years. The restoration Includes beautiful deep red paint, new wood throughout the sub-frame and doors, a fleece-backed leather hood strap, black leather seats, black leather gearbox cover, black carpeting with embroidered Morgan logos, all new/rebuilt instruments in the coveted cream color, varnished wood dash, Moto-Lita wood-rimmed steering wheel (Original wheel included), new chrome wire wheels, tonneau cover, rebuilt carbs by Joe Curto, polished aluminium valve cover, solid state ignition, rebuilt brakes (discs in front, drums in rear) and more!

The odometer shows 73,000 miles and this motorcar has not been for sale until now. This Morgan is driven regularly but sparingly, as part of the owner's collection of classic British Sports Cars. It runs smoothly and the overall condition is excellent. The Morgan Plus 4's rarity and beautiful retro styling attracts plenty of attention and admiration wherever it goes. This is a unique opportunity to acquire this iconic sports car at a reasonable price!
