Owning a Morgan is all about enjoying fine craftsmanship built in
the traditional way. It makes for exceptional cars with
discriminating rarity. And there have been the correct major
investments in this 1962 Morgan Plus 4 Roadster to keep it a true
solid driver's classic. So if you have a favorite road, this Morgan
should be the best way to celebrate it.
Morgans have a timeless sense of style. The sweeping fenders,
pontoon headlights, rear-mounted spare tire, waterfall grille, and
ash wood frame - it is often hard to tell the difference between a
Plus 4 roadster built today and one that's over a half-century old.
Of course, a timeless appearance is also aided by the right
investments. It starts with the two-tone paint. The tan and brown
both have a nice metallic so that this roadster loves the sunshine.
The darker brown fenders love to show off the curvaceous style, and
the tan body draws attention to the sporty louvered hood. Plus, the
full two-tone effect gives the proper sophisticated look to the
and-formed steel body. There's even a matching tan pinstriping on
the edge of the fenders for added chicness. And everything from the
leather hood strap to the whitewalls really gives this a true
classic motoring feeling.
There's a nice folding roof for whenever you need it, but really, a
Morgan was meant to be open to the world. So you get an interior
tastefully done in a brown that harmonizes with the exterior
colors. The seats have the classic British look with a shared back
and individual bottoms. Morgans are a great lesson in purist
motoring, and so nothing gets in the way of enjoying the old-world
driving experience. You sit behind a proper Brooklands-style
steering wheel and look out over a dash made or real wood. You get
a full set of Smiths gauges and the shifter is in that ideal
position that feels like it's an extension of your right arm.
Under the hood (bonnet) is a 2.2-liter motor borrowed from the
Triumph TR4. This engine is known for its legendary pep, especially
with the Cannon intake and twin Weber carburetor upgrade. Best of
all, the more mass-produced motor means maintenance is easy on your
rare bespoke Morgan. The driving experience is maximized as you row
through the gears of the four-speed transmission and get the most
out of this four-cylinder. Your senses will go into overload as the
wind whips through the interior, and you help create the wonderful
soundtrack from the motor. It gives you an instant connection to
this classic machine that makes Morgans one of the most
enthusiast-driven brands out there. Add in front disc brakes, and
you know this roadster is just begging for the open road.
This has the old-world hand-built kind of feel we all want in a
true European classic. So don't let this opportunity pass you by.
