A Fantastic opportunity to own a Morgan Legend
1961 Morgan Plus 4 Super Sport
Originally purchased for Bob Fountain our proprietor and prepared for him to do events, this is a fine example, unfortunately Bob is 6 foot 2 inches and didn't fit in the car comfortably, the decision was taken to sell the car and here is a great opportunity to own a rare top class appreciating Morgan.
The car comes complete with the original Morgan Car Company Build sheet, proving it is a genuine one of 104 original Super Sports cars
Supplied new to a US Morgan distributor and with US title if required.
With Triumph TR engine, sporting 2 twin choke Weber carburettors, Lawrence Tune rocker cover and correct twin tubular exhaust manifolds.
The Morgan Plus 4 Super Sports model was introduced late in 1961, offering arguably the best price-for-performance value available at that time. Its lightweight aluminum body provided crisp handling in a design reminiscent of the great, fully fender-ed sports cars of the 1930s.
Between 1961 and 1968, only 104 of the English-made, aluminium-bodied Super Sports were produced with Triumph TR4A-engines.
In Brunswick green, with biscuit leather upholstery, it is in excellent all round condition, having had a top class wings off and glass out respray and colour change some years ago by our paint shop to our standards.
These fantastic cars were capable of speeds up to 120 mph, making them potent sports cars with real competition potential.
The Plus 4 Morgan was a distinct model in its own right and produced by Morgan as generally 2-seater sports cars. During the 1950’s and early 1960’s, these cars generally came with the Triumph TR engine and gearbox. In 1960, Morgan modified a few of these cars to compete in the Le Mans races and other similar endurance events, teaming up with Lawrence Tune to up-rate the engine.
More often than not class winners, the factory cars soon created a demand to modify standard production Plus 4 cars for customer use.
Morgans, even to the present day come with a separate ladder chassis and the Morgan distinctive sliding pillar front suspension. The Body is constructed around a wooden frame with steel and aluminium panels and wings and all follow a traditional Morgan design, with side opening bonnet and separate front and rear wings.
This particular car was supplied new to a US distributor as an original LHD car in 1961 and acquired for sale from a Californian car collector, this is an excellent example and a rare car of real character.
The car will be fully prepared for the new owner and comes with a full 12 months return to base guarantee.
An opportunity to buy such an example comes by rarely, these cars being cherished, few in number and changing ownership very infrequently. Our car comes with weather equipment and an early inspection is strongly recommended, we are sure you won't be disappointed.
Test drive welcome - Part exchange considered
