The Morgan Plus 4 was introduced in 1950 as a more powerful entry in the postwar British sports-car craze from the company with a sporting lineage that stretches back to its 1909 Morgan 3-wheeled motorcar and subsequent 4-wheeled Morgan 4/4 roadster. In the 1950s, Morgan turned to its fellow British sports-car maker Triumph for the 2.0-liter 4-cylidner engine that powered the Plus 4 line.

This particular example was delivered from Britain to Fergus Imported Cars in New York, and it retains its original selling-dealer's ID plate. The wood-framed and hand-formed steel-bodied roadster was the subject of a restoration some time ago, and it has since been the subject of more recent updates for improved performance and traditional style. The TR3-sourced overhead-valve engine has since been upgraded with dual Weber carburetors on a Cannon intake manifold and exhaust header to extract more than the factory-rated 100 HP. The inline-4 is backed by a Moss 4-speed manual transmission. Hydraulic front disc and rear drum brakes work with the Morgan sliding-pillar independent front and semi-elliptical sprung rear suspension for classic British sports-car road handling.

This Morgan has a hand-built rust-free body finished in a two-tone gold-over-copper paint scheme. The cockpit features its original wood dash and wood-rimmed banjo steering wheel with a roll bar installed for added safety on road or track. Lucas driving lights supplement the primary headlamps, and a new Haartz tan cloth convertible top is ready in case of inclement weather. Factory-issued pressed-steel wheels were sandblasted and powder-coated prior to the mounting of five new Vredestein radial tires and new chrome-plated hubcaps.
