First seen in 1950, the Morgan Plus 4 was a larger and more powerful derivative of the company's 4/4 and has remained in production on and off until 2020 when it was replaced by an all new bonded aluminium platform. Up until 1969, it was powered by the four-cylinder engines found in the Standard/Triumph range.
This Morgan Plus 4 four seater is powered by the 1991cc Triumph TR3 engine fitted with twin SU H6 carburettors and is mated to a four speed gearbox. Front disc brakes fitted. There is comprehensive documentation revealing much of the vehicles history.
