1938 Morgan 4/4 Drop head Coupe

The Drop head Coupe was considered to be the most refined car that Morgan had produced the major difference being in styling and comfort. Some 58 were produced by the outset of the Second World War.

The car is in it's original colour scheme of blue over black and is in the same specification as it left the factory.

This was one of the last vehicles to be fitted with a Coventry climax engine as that Company had decided to terminate building car engines and concentrate on the production of engines for fire pumps in the light of the prospect of another war.

Registration: BCJ146 first registered 15/12/1938

Engine : Coventry Climax. No. MA839

Chassis No: 4/4761

Configuration : Four cylinder in line with cast iron block and head.

Valve action : Pushrods and rocker. verhead inlet and side exhaust (ioe).

Capacity : 1122cc.

Power Output : 35 bhp

Compression Ratio : 6. 8:1

Gearbox : Meadows 4 speed with synchro between 3rd and 4th.

Maximum Speed when new : 77. 5 mph.

The car is in first class condition with paint work and chrome being excellent as evidenced by the fact that Morgan Motor Co asked that it be exhibited at the 100 year anniversary celebrations in August and it has appeared two years running at the NEC Classic car show on the VSCC stand in 2013 and the MSCC stand last year. It has a buff form from the VSCC allowing the car to compete in their events as original and unmodified.

Mechanically it has been very well maintained. Tyres excellent.

As to mileage the odometer says about 7. 00 but that is clearly on its second time around. The car went through a significant mechanical and body rebuild in the 80's
