With its 1950 Plus 4. Morgan moved upmarket in size. weight. br/>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. br/>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 builds old-fashioned cars the
old-fashioned way and vehicles of that nature just won't be
hurried.

This 1600cc Morgan. presented in a great combination of Old
English Cream with black leather was originally a demonstrator for
Morgan before being registered to Mrs. Eddleston in December of
1985. bought as a gift from her husband. Unfortunately. it was a
gift that the new owner was not so keen on and only drove the car a
handful of times before deciding it was not for her. She
consequently purchased something else and parked up the poor Moggy
in the garage! Here it appears to have spent almost all of its
life. though we can safely assume that Mr. Eddleston at least kept
the odometer ticking over on the odd Sunday blast although. br/>remarkably. the car has covered just 984 miles. Sold with the
original bill of sale and order number. the car has actually only
ever required one MoT test in 1989. presumably due to lack of use. br/>however. the vendor is going to have a current MoT test certificate
issued for the new owner. Also present is the original handbook. br/>full wet weather running gear with tonneau cover. all. br/>unsurprisingly. as new and V5 Registration document. A unique
opportunity. certainly. to purchase a car that has had virtually no
use since new. and with no need for re-commissioning. you can drive
this away into the sunset but will you be the one to surpass the
magical 1. 00 mile mark?
