Description

This Morgan Three-Wheeler has lain unclaimed on the vendor's farm for over twenty years. The number plate it wears - 'APH 322' - is still recorded on the DVLA and HPi databases but is associated with the chassis number 'D363'. Whereas, the number visible on its torque tube seems to read either '89' or '68'. Thus, it is possible that this lot has no claim to the registration number 'APH 322' especially as chassis 'D363' began life as a Family (4-seater) model. By contrast chassis '89' was built as a Sports (2-seater) model. The Morgan Three Wheeler Club have told us they would support an application to the DVLA for chassis '89' (or chassis '68') to be allocated an age-related registration number provided that the Morgan was 'rebuilt with appropriate period parts'. In need of extensive restoration, the Three-Wheeler appears to be fitted with a water-cooled Matchless V-twin engine (MX2/673) and separate three-speed manual gearbox. Sporting a `barrel back' body, it is self-evidently incomplete. Nevertheless, this 'barn find' Morgan has the makings of a worthwhile project. Offered for sale with sundry spares but no documentation.
