1960 Morgan 4/4

- Service History
- Fuel Type
Of all the classic British post-war roadsters produced, no other car is quite as distinctive and easily recognised as a Morgan and particularly the 4/4 with its, nearly, eighty years of presence on our roads. The 4/4 name indicated that this model had 4 wheels and 4 cylinders and the general appearance of the car hasn't altered much in all those years. With a simple and strong drive train, agile handling and a truly visceral, sporting ride quality, driving a well-sorted Morgan is regularly grin (and occasionally grimace) inducing. Its timeless styling never fails to turn heads and generate appreciation, strange when you think they have been around forever, and they are perennial favourites at shows and touring events.
This particular 4/4 is a Series II model that has been lovingly restored by one of its previous owners. Finished in Red with a cream leather interior and traditional wooden dashboard, the car was stripped down to the bare chassis and rebuilt from the ash frame upwards. The side-valve 1,172cc Ford 100E engine was cleaned, tuned and the ancillaries replaced and, at the same time, a new wiring loom was fitted and the braking system renewed. Finally, a new stainless steel exhaust was fabricated giving the car a superb 'raspy' exhaust note
With only 386 series II Morgan 4/4s produced, this beautiful little car presents a wonderful opportunity to own one of the quintessential British Sports Cars. Supplied with a UK V5c this is surely one of the best value classics money can buy!
