The Morgan Plus 4 was the Morgan Motor Company's first car with four wheels, introduced in 1936 following the end of production of the famed three wheeled motorcycle engine models . Its model designation '4-4' stood for four wheels and four cylinders. 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 with its engine capacity increased from the 1122cc Coventry Climax engine in 1936 to a 1.8 litre Ford engine by 2004. Always a popular choice for sports car enthusiasts across the globe, the combination of the typically British 1930's styling with its flowing wings, modern performance and reliability have ensured the Morgan is as popular today as it ever has been.
Originally ordered with the factory in 1993, the current and only owner had to wait six years for his 4/4 with Lowline body and finally received his Morgan in 2000. Since its delivery, this motorcar presented in indigo blue has had no expense spared with a fully documented and comprehensive service history. The original specification sheet is included along with all original sales literature details the optional extras such as the Lowline body and chrome wire wheels, stone Autocalf leather seats, luggage rack and Waxoyl from new.
The vendor informs us that the car has always been garaged therefore rarely seen inclement weather however included is a tonneau cover just in case. Offered with a current MoT test certificate valid until March 2015 and with the vast majority of previous MoT certificates present to certify the low mileage, the Morgan is considered by many to be the quintessential British sports car and this low mileage example has clearly been well maintained with an excellent supporting history.
