H.F.S. Morgan, a railway engineer by college degree, designed his first car, a three-wheeler, in 1909 as a college project. Until 1936 Morgan made only three-wheeled cars. His first four-wheeler, the 4/4, was produced from 1936-1950. The Plus 8 model was produced from 1968 to 2003 and it features a Buick-designed Rover 215 CID aluminum V-8 engine.
This is an export continental model, and is one of just 125 left-hand drive narrow body examples built. It was originally delivered to the owner at the Morgan plant and air-freighted to its owner who resided in Dayton, Ohio. Having just 16,500 miles from new, restoration was completed in 1999.
