1952 Morgan +4


Morgan introduced the +4 in 1950, replacing the original four-wheeler 4/4 with a new car bearing a 2088cc vanguard engine producing 68BHP and boosting performance. To accomodate this, the frame was strenghtened, the front suspension improved, and Girling hydraulic brakes were fitted. Acceleration from 0 - 60mph was 17.9 seconds with a top speed of over 85mph. This particular +4, the rare four seat variation, was the last car owned by company founder H.F.S Morgan. Originally built with a flat radiator, it was one of the first Morgans to receive the now traditional rounded design. Shown at the 1954 London Motor Show, its first private owner was Paul Woudenberg, "The voice of Pebble Beach".
