We are proud to be offering for sale what is surely one of the best Morgan Plus 4 examples available. Of all the classic British post-war roadsters produced. no other car is quite as unique or charming as the Morgan Plus 4. With a simple and strong drive train. agile handling and a truly visceral. sporting drive quality. sitting behind the wheel a well-sorted Morgan is ceaselessly grin-inducing. Timeless and distinctive styling never fails to garner appreciation. part of the reason these iconoclastic cars are perennial favorites at shows and touring events.  Produced between 1950 and 1969. the Plus 4 was a larger. quicker version of the company's popular 4/4 model. The early 1960s models are really the most representative of the breed and better to drive with the significant benefit of the Triumph sourced inline four-cylinder engine. This example is fitted with the desirable TR4 motor and Moss 4-speed gearbox and it is an absolute joy to drive. The car starts easily. idles consistently and pulls strongly and smoothly through each of the gears. After a long crusie down to Malibu (part of which was in significant traffic). I'm happy to report that the car shows no indications of overheating. somewhat uncommon for Plus 4s. The transmission is crisp and smooth. the suspension is stiff and the car drives and brakes straight. The best way to describe the car would be that it's completely tight. needing nothing to be enjoyed.

 

A Southern California engineer purchased this Plus 4 Roadster (chassis number 5325) new and kept it for 37 years. at first using it as a daily driver and then as a secondary. weekend car. The car accrued nearly all of its 93. 00 original miles under his stewardship and was in very solid original condition when the second owner heard about it through the grape vine and acquired the car in 2000. A serious Morgan enthusiast. he used it in a similar capacity for the ensuing three years. putting less than five hundred miles on the car on short weekend jaunts. At that point he began a sympathetic restoration which included replacing all of the wood. stripping and repainting the car in its original black. detailing the undercarriage. refinishing all of the brightwork and reupholstering the interior in the correct materials. Having owned many Morgans. the second owner ensured that all of the work performed was completely correct. all the way down to the right nuts and bolts.   

 

The results of his efforts is an example that presents beautifully. The rare. correct black paint is in excellent condition. marred only by the most minor of imperfections. none of which appear in any of the pictures. All of the brightwork is flawless. all of the glass and rubber is excellent and the original wheels are in great shape. wrapped in tires with plenty of remaining tread. The undercarriage is clean and rust-free and all of the ash wood is perfect. The leather seats show only the most minimal wear. the carpets are excellent and the dash wood has been nicely refinished. The car comes with its original soft top. a brand new soft top. a boot cover and its original side curtains. Everything works as it should. including all of the gauges and the car's rare optional upgraded Lucas headlamps and bumper mounted driving light.

 

If you've been looking for a correct. honest and beautifully presented Morgan Plus 4. this car deserves your serious attention. It has all the right things going for it: fantastic. correct original color combination. strong original mechanicals. excellent Southern California provenance and in wonderful cosmetic condition. It's arguably the best example on the market and is sure to bring its next owner years of continued pleasure. Please bid accordingly.

We want this car to go to great home and would be happy to further discuss it and answer any questions. so please feel free to email us or call us at 805-202-4557. You can also visit us online at GoodmanReed.

We've always had an appreciation for classic European cars and over the years have created an eclectic personal collection. We only buy cars that we'd personally be interested in owning and generally only sell things to make room for other acquisitions. That time has come for this Morgan Plus 4 (if the price is right. of course - this isn't a fire-sale). We try to give accurate descriptions of the cars we're selling. but we're not experts and we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do so before bidding. as the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.

For U. S. buyers a 10% non-refundable deposit is required within 3 days of the auction's end. the balance to be paid within 7 days of the auction's end. Foreign buyers must pay in full within 7 business days of the auction's end. Buyer is responsible for shipping. however we'd be more that happy to help with recommendations and arrangements. The car is listed locally and we reserve the right to end the auction at any time should it sell prior to auction's end. Thanks for your interest.
