HERE WE HAVE A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A PRE-WAR PROPER MORGAN. THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN RESTORED FROM THE GROUND UP OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS AND IS NOW READY FOR SOMEONE TO ENJOY. THE MODEL IS QUITE RARE - MX FAMILY 4

AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHS IT IS A TWO SEATER BUT IT WAS ORIGINALLY A FOUR SEATER - FROM THE FACTORY - BUT I HAVE NOT PUT REAR SEATS IN BECAUSE AS YOU CAN IMAGINE THERE IS NOT MUCH SPACE. I HAVE A COPY OF THE ORIGINAL ADVERT WHICH SHOWS 4 PEOPLE SITTING IN IT BUT IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY THEN YOU CAN SEE THE PEOPLE ARE IN FACT KIDS DRESSED UP - SO MUCH FOR ADVERTISING STANDARDS IN THE THIRTIES

THE ONLY THING LEFT TO DO IS MOUNT THE WINDSCREEN. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE PHOTOS BUT I COULDNT DECIDE WETHER TO USE IT OR BUY TWO AERO SCREENS WHICH I THINK WOULD LOOK FABULOUS.

I ALSO HAVE THE ORIGINAL ROOF - CANVAS - WHICH WILL GO WITH THE CAR BUT AS YOU CAN IMAGINE IT IS IN A BIT OF A CLIP AND WILL NEED RENEWING - THE OLD CAN BE USED FOR A PATTERN IF SO DESIRED. I HAVE LISTED BELOW WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO THE MORGAN BUT THE LIST IS NOT COMPREHENSIVE AS I AM SURE I HAVE FORGOTTEN STUFF.

A BARE METAL RESPRAY.  PREPARED BY A TIME SERVED PANEL BEATER - THE ORIGINAL BONNET WAS IN A STATE - AND THEN PAINTED BY HIS SON. ALL THE PANELS WERE TREATED IN THE SAME WAY AND HOURS AND HOURS WERE PUT INTO THE PREPARATION. THE CHASSIS WAS HAND PAINTED AS WAS THE ASH FRAME. THE METAL CHASSIS WAS TAKEN APART. CLEANED AND THEN PUT IN A JIG FOR REASSEMBLY. ALL THE JOINTS WERE CHECKED AND RE-BRAZED. THE ASH FRAME WAS REBUILT BY A TIME SERVED JOINER WITH NATURAL DRIED ENGLISH ASH

THE PETROL TANK WAS TAKEN APART. REPAIRED AND RE-SOLDERED. THE ORIGINAL RADIATOR WAS RE-CORED BY A SPECIALIST FIRM AT A COST OF AROUND £2500

THE ENGINE IS A WATER COOLED MATCHLESS 1000cc. THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL ENGINE AND WAS STRIPPED DOWN AND REBUILT - IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND RUNS LIKE A DREAM. THE EXHAUST RUNS THROUGH THE METAL CHASSIS

I HAVE HAD THE FOUR ORIGINAL WHEEL RIMS BLASTED AND THEN PAINTED WITH FOUR NEW TYRES AND TUBES - ALL BEARINGS WERE REPLACED AS A MATTER OF COURSE

THE CAR HAS BEEN ENTIRELY RE-UPHOLSTERED - APART FROM THE SEAT BACKS. THESE ARE THE ORIGINAL SEATS. THE BACKS WERE IN GOOD NICK SO THE REST OF THE CAR WAS DONE TO MATCH THEM. THIS WAS ALL DONE BY MAX TAIT - NORTHUMBRIA LEATHER. IT COST A FORTUNE BUT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY. MAX IS FAMOUS IN THE CLASSIC CAR WORLD AND HE DID IT WHILE WAITING FOR A BUGATTI TO BE DELIVERED FROM HONG KONG

MAX ALSO MADE THE TONNEAU FOR THE CAR WHICH LOOKS FANTASTIC AND HAS A ZIP SO CAN BE KEPT ON WHILST DRIVING

ALL THE ELECTRICS - 6V - WERE PREPARED AND FITTED BY FERRET. FERRET IS PRIMARILY A MOTORCYCLE ELECTRICIAN BUT HE IS ALSO A FRIEND AND I PERSUADED HIM TO DO THE MORGAN FOR ME. THE STARTING MOTOR WAS REBUILT AS WAS THE DYNAMO. THERE IS ALSO A BRAND NEW BATTERY

I HAVE PUT ON INDICATORS BUT THEY ARE PERIOD AND LOOK THE PART. FERRET ALSO DID THE DASHBOARD FOR ME AND ALL THE INSTRUMENTS WORK. BELIEVE IT OR NOT A FRIEND OF MINE - WHO COLLECTS CLASSIC BIKES - LET ME LOOK THROUGH HIS SPARE PARTS AND I FOUND THE ORIGINAL IGNITION KEY - NOT ONE THAT JUST FITS BUT THE PROPER ONE

IT IS THE ORIGINAL REGISTRATION AND ACCORDING TO THE LOG BOOK I AM THE THIRD OWNER - IF YOU HAD SEEN THE STATE OF IT WHEN I GOT IT THEN THIS IS BELIEVABLE - IT HAD BEEN SITTING IN A LEAKING BARN SINCE THE SIXTIES AND THE GUY I GOT IT FROM BOUGHT IT FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNERS FAMILY

 

SO THERE IT IS - A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A PRE-WAR MORGAN THAT HASNT BEEN MESSED WITH AND HAS BEEN SYMPATHETICALLY RESTORED. I AM BOUND TO HAVE FORGOTTEN LOADS OF STUFF SO IF YOU HAVE ANY QUETSIONS THEN DO NOT HESTATE TO CONTACT ME.

THE BORING BIT - I HAVE DESCRIBED THE CAR HONESTLY BUT I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU VIEW THE CAR SO YOU CAN SATISFY YOURSELF. THIS IS A UNIQUE CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY SO IF YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED A MORGAN NOW IS YOUR CHANCE

I AM SELLING WITH NO RESERVE. THE WINNING BIDDER SHOULD PAY £500 THROUGH PAYPAL WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE END OF THE AUCTION WITH THE BALANCE PAID ON COLLECTION - THE CAR WILL NOT BE RELEASED UNTIL THE FUNDS ARE IN MY HANDS.

I MAY TAKE A BIKE OR CAR IN PART EXCHANGE - LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU ARE THINKING

 

GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY BIDDING

Hi,
I love the pictures of the Family. Keep the proper screen, then you
can have a proper hood and side screens.
The Morgan advert shows the smallest people working in the factory but all adults - really.
