Introduced in October 1950, Morgan’s Plus 4 was produced through 1968. These models were powered by a Standard-Triumph dual-carbureted OHV engine mated to a Moss four-speed gearbox and, by 1960, offered a rated 100 bhp in the U.S. In particular, Morgan’s unique sliding-pillar front suspension design gives the car its unique, lively handling and sporting character.
This Morgan Plus 4 was shipped to the U.S. on 27 April 1960. It was sold through Worldwide Motors of Los Angeles, California. The car left the factory painted black with red leather upholstery. A U.S.-specification left-hand-drive example, the car was also originally fitted with disc wheels and disc brakes.
Today the car is presented in crème with a red interior with tonneau cover and a black top. The exterior features Lucas fog lights, fold-down windshield, fender-mounted mirrors, and rear luggage rack. The Morgan rides on Michelin XZX radial tires which are mounted on chrome wire wheels; front disc brakes bring the car to a safe stop. The nicely appointed interior features a Bluemel’s Brooklands steering wheel, Brooklands adjustable race windshields, and Smiths instrumentation. The car is accompanied by its Morgan Chassis Record and the Morgan Plus 4 instruction book.
