This is a very nice, rare, RHD 1951 Morgan +4 finished in Olde English White. It was purchased in the early 1990’s from Allon White & Sons located in Bedford England, after a fresh restoration. The car was used for travel extensively through Europe while the owners were working in Brussels. The car was then imported to the United States and has been used for summer fun. To the best of my knowledge, since 1999, the top and side curtains have never been used on the car. I have put them on for some pictures only and to show their condition. The interior is black leather. The chrome is exceptional on the radiator shell, headlight buckets, and turn signals, except for the hub caps which are very good. The paint has some chips and a few cracks as would be expected with a car of that age.
Mechanically, the engine is a very strong Vangard Triumph four cylinder with a single downdraft Solex carburetor. The gasoline used has had the appropriate lead additive with each fill up. The oil used has been Shell Rotella T 15W40 diesel oil so that there is zinc in the oil for the camshaft tappets since all our oils in the US no longer have the zinc additive. The four speed transmission is the standard “Moss” gearbox. The brakes were replaced in 2012 and work very well, the fluid was replaced with DOT 5. The front bakes are double leading shoe design for greater stopping power and the rears standard lead and trail design. The rear axle and drive shaft “U” joints are in excellent condition. The front suspension is the standard Morgan sliding pillar which is lubricated by a push button on the firewall to be held down for several seconds upon firing the engine before driving. There is a stainless steel exhaust system.
The dashboard is an exquisite piece of English Walnut housing beautiful original “Smiths” working gauges. The electrical system is typical + ground for stronger spark and works perfectly.
I’ve been a Morgan owner and a member of the Ohio Morgan Owners Group for over 20 years. This is one of the nicest Flat Rads I have seen. It is ready to be enjoyed from that Saturday morning run for a cup of coffee to a weekend adventure touring the country side.
