With its 1950 Plus 4, Morgan moved upmarket in size, weight, power and price. The British manufacturer realised it might lose some potential customers but was happy to live with the situation for a while. By mid-decade though, the Plus 4 had become more potent and Morgan felt it should, again, field a lower-power car. This explains the revival of the Morgan 4/4 though it was completely different from the car that carried that title during 1935-50. In fact, the new 4/4 was closely related to the Plus 4. The main difference was engines, purchased from Ford instead of Triumph. The re-born 4/4 has been around for more than 30 years now and shows no signs of dying away. Like other Morgans, it's always had the same chassis design, body construction and styling, a kind of technological time warp that customers keep coming back for nevertheless. Morgan build old-fashioned cars the old-fashioned way and vehicles of that nature just won't be hurried.

Originally registered on 12th December 1990, this Morgan is finished in the two-tone colour combination of red and black with a black interior. We are advised by the vendor that this 4/4 drives well and the Rover 2.0 litre twin-cam engine offers brisk performance. The car has been well maintained and has been frequently serviced. The paintwork is in good order other than two small blemishes and the interior is unmarked. All of the wet weather gear is present and intact. Some minor re-commissioning is required, the prudent owner would we expect, use the car for the summer months and carry out any necessary work during the winter months. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 18th August 2023. These stylish, traditional sports cars, given the right weather, offer so much fun and will not fail to put a smile on your face.
