Lot 184: Morgan 4-Apr

Fine Motor cars incl. The Jaguar Legend, Coys (14 July 2012)

Morgan 4/4 was the Morgan Motor Company's first car with four wheels. It appeared in 1936. Its model designation 4-4 stood for four wheels and four cylinders. Earlier Morgans had been three-wheelers, only, typically with V-twin engines. Apart from a break during World War II (and the period March 1951 to September 1955) the 4/4 has been in continuous production from its debut right up to the present day. Engine capacity has increased from the 1122 cc Coventry Climax engine in 1936 to a 1.8-litre Ford engine in 2004. This model was introduced in March 1982 with a Ford 1597 cc CVH engine and Ford four-speed gearbox until 1984, then a Ford five-speed gearbox from Ford Sierra. 1652 were built by November 1991. This car was manufactured in 1989 and has covered only 24,000 miles according to the owner. The example offered here is finished in traditional red with black interior and comes with its original handbook, some bills/receipts and has a black hood. This little Morgan offers Heritage and traditional styling, a head turner that represents all that is fun with open top motoring.
