We are excited to offer this super cool survivor-type barn find Morgan 4/4.This is a wonderfully original car, first delivered to Malvern resident Brian W. Illsley. Malvern is the city where the Morgan factory remains operational to-date. The original registration books accompany the car (Vin # B673), showing the succession of owners in England. Mr. Illsley kept the car for about ten years, before selling it to George Price, another Malvern resident. The car was sold again in summer of 1972 to Peter Douglas Boswell in Osgathorpe, and remained there until 1974 when the car was exported from England to Atlanta, Georgia and subsequently sold to Douglas Wood of Fort Payne, Alabama. After about four years of use, the car appears to have been stored and left unused for decades to come. Fast forward to the summer of 2018, when the car reappears in the St. Louis area and sees a raft of work done to it by a previous owner who attempted to put it back on the road. Again it sat mechanically unfinished until we acquired the car. Originally British Racing green, the car was repainted once around 1974 in Almond beige. The car still has its original engine and transmission, the original leather interior, mohair top, and side screens. It is remarkably complete and totally original, fully deserving of a restoration. It even still has the tiny skeleton key to the rare factory optional glove compartment lid. Preparing the car for a new owner and excited to work on this super cool car, we got the car running and driving again. It now has a new clutch master and brake master cylinders, rebuilt fuel pump and carburettor, new water pump, brakes lines, starter solenoid, plugs, wires, and fluids. The tires have no miles on them and have the proper tubes installed as well. The ash frame appears in very good condition. The fenders show a welded repair to the driver's side and both have a primered area as can be seen in the photos. We carefully steam cleaned the top, washed and cleaned the exterior, treated the leather and tidied things up a bit. The car can be enjoyed for quite a while as is and makes a for a fantastic prop. Folks are literally drawn to it. Of course, the leather seating is old and will prove to be brittle if used regularly. Still, it is amazing to see such an original interior and exterior on a car that is almost 60 years old. One of only 153 Series IV 4/4's made, this is a very rare car, especially in right-hand drive configuration. It's documented ownership history add to the great appeal of B673. Price: $19,500 Notes: The last two photos show the car as it was discovered by us in a local garage. The 4/4 designation stands for 4 wheels (vs. their 3 wheelers) and 4 cylinders. Note that this is the two seat Morgan, much prettier than the more common Plus 4 which has a 2+2 configuration and stretched tub.
