Morgan introduced its new Plus Four model in 1950 to effectively replace the 4/4 model. The Plus Four used a tuned Standard Vanguard engine which was well regarded at the time and developed a healthy 68bhp. The Plus Four now included hydraulic brakes as standard and used a hypoid rear axle unit.
Body styles were the same as used before on previous 4/4 models and were available in 2 and 4 seater roadster styles or as a pretty 2 seater drophead coupe.
