Beschreibung

Beautifully restored....

Of all the classic British post-war roadsters produced, no other car is quite as distinctive and easily recognized as a Morgan and particularly the 4/4 with its, nearly, eighty years of presence on our roads. The 4/4 name indicated that this model had 4 wheels and 4 cylinders and the general appearance of the car hasn't altered much in all those years. With a simple and strong drive train, agile handling and a truly visceral ride quality, driving a well-sorted Morgan is regularly grin (and occasionally grimace) inducing. Its timeless styling never fails to turn heads and generate appreciation, strange when you think they have been around forever, and they are perennial favourites at shows and touring events.
This 1968 Morgan 4/4 is a rare and desirable example that has just been subject to a meticulous professional restoration. In 2014, the car competed in, and achieved trophy status, at the Concours d'Elegance at Peles Castle, Romania.
Left-hand drive, finished in vibrant red with a black interior, and fitted with a Ford 1599cc (70bhp) Kent engine and 5-speed manual gearbox, this is a particularly attractive example that is as good underneath as it is on top. The brightwork, chrome wire wheels and chromed luggage rack are in great shape and the condition of the glass and rubber is excellent. Having travelled less than 150 kilometres since its restoration, and never been used in the rain, the soft-top and frame, the full tonneau cover and side panels are all like new. Everything works as it should, including all of the original white-faced instruments, the car's headlamps and the bumper-mounted Lucas running lamp. The engine and rebuilt gearbox will also be found to be in exceptional order. Owners of older Morgans can take comfort from the fact that the Malvern factory are as busy as ever turning out spares for their loyal 4/4 enthusiasts.
If you've been looking for an honest, mechanically excellent and beautifully presented Morgan 4/4, this car deserves your serious attention. This car has all the right things going for it; a beautiful body-off restoration, is well maintained, has strong original mechanicals, and is in a fantastic colour combination. This wonderful little Morgan is sure to bring its next owner years of continued pleasure.
