This is a 1929 Morgan Super Sports Aero which has a J. A. P. (JA Prestwich Industries) LTOW engine which was rated at 40 hp.  This Morgan is what is refered to as a "two speeder" with "beetleback" bodywork which is arguably the most desirable configuration of Morgan three-wheelers. The "two speeder" has two forward gears and no reverse gear.

 

This car is currently titled and registered in my name with a clear Iowa title. The UK registration number ‘LT3' comes from a rather distinctive car. The Texas document has a license number of ‘Q89' which had been removed when the previous owner purchased it from Keith Beers of Waxahachie. He. in turn. had bought the car from Robert Kerr of the Kerr-McGee Oil company in Oklahoma.  The engine number identifies it as made in 1927. and the chassis number indicates 1929. However. no records exist. they were recycled during WW2 as waste paper according to the MTWC historian.

 

The car was rebuilt along with my other Morgan Sports. Thus both engines were done. then both chassis. then body frames followed by metal skinning and interiors. This chassis was completely re-tubed. nothing except the lugs from the original chassis was worth saving.

 

10 years later the car is as it is today. Originally these cars were started by inserting a handle in the side of the transmission. The dynamo was replaced by a Delco-Remy starter/generator and regulator unit  from a tractor. This works OK. Electrics are 12 volt.

Car has a centre bearing for the prop shaft. Originally. without centre bearing. prop shaft whip caused problems at high revs and careful balancing was necessary. The radiator is nickel plated.

Dash board oil pumps are presently only for show. as there is a Pilgrim Pump on the engine. They could be used if you wished. The previous owner made the pumps from drawings and castings from the MTWC (Morgan Three Wheeler Club). I promised not to distribute the drawings at the time. I think they look very pretty….

The ‘Stewart” speedometer in the dash has no drive yet.  There is also a crack in the windscreen in front of the driver.

Comes with binders of history. blueprints. build pictures. invoices. and manufaturing of the replacement parts.
