Sold for $40,700 at 2014 Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction.
The Morgan marque has a history that dates back to 1910 though they didn't introduce a four-wheeled car until 1936. After World War II, production resumed with the 4-4 and its 1,267cc Special Standard motor. In 1950, the new Plus 4 was introduced, with a 2,088cc Standard (and later Triumph) engine offering nearly 70 horsepower. The Plus 4 was also given a stiffer frame, improved front suspension, and Girling hydraulic brakes. The company offered three body styles including the two-seater, the four-seater, and the drop-head coupe. In 1954, the early 'Flat-Rad' Morgans were given a facelift which included a new, rounded nose. In 1956, they became a true 100 mph vehicle with the introduction of the new 2.2-liter Triumph TR3 engine. Production continued into the late 1960s, when it was replaced by the Plus 8.

This 1953 Morgan Plus 4 Sports car is a two-seat roadster powered by a Triumph TR2 four-cylinder engine and Moss four-speed gearbox. The early history is not known. In 1996, it was treated to a restoration. The current owner acquired the car in January 2001, who then commissioned a mechanical overhaul. The work included an engine rebuild, front-end overhaul, and a new clutch and pressure plate. Since then, the Morgan has remained in dry storage with very few miles being added since the engine rebuild. It is finished in bright yellow with black leather seats, a black top and side curtains. It is a two-seater with cut-down, rear-hinged doors, twin spare tires, and a slab-style gas tank. It rides on the original steel disc wheels which are painted black with correct chromed Morgan hubcaps.
