Description

This is a beautifully presented, exceptional driving four-seater Morgan that was first registered on the 18th June 1971. The Morgan had one long term owner from the 1980’s and in 2011 it was subject of a body restoration/ re-paint and re-trim. In 2016, it was purchased from Revolutions Morgan in Perth with the intentions of hill climbs, sprints and trials and its ‘new’ owner then spent £13, 000 preparing the car mechanically.

Over £6000 alone was spent with AGRA Engineering in Dundee, an invoice on file confirms the engine was bored to 1650cc, it was lightened and balanced and fitted with forged pistons. The front suspension was altered to negative camber and the steering was converted to bearings in place of spring plates. The brakes were converted to dual circuit operation with 4 pot front calipers and the car was then ready for events. The owner was then a regular competitor in the Scottish Championships hillclimbs at Forrestburn, also the Bo'ness Revival hillclimb. The owner was a member of the Monklands Sporting Car Club and some fantastic photos of the Morgan at various events to include the Annual grass Autotest at Coulter are with the car.

Since carrying out this work, the Morgan has covered over 7, 000 miles and has been thoroughly enjoyed with various e-mails on file from its former owner. This desirable four-seater Morgan is ideal for long distance touring and it has already proved incredibly reliable over the past ten years and feels tight on the road with impressive handling, sharp brakes, and a lovely fit, quick, strong engine with smooth gearbox. The Morgan has been regularly driven to events, going through scrutineering, and competing on reliability trials and with its upgraded engine it really is fantastic fun on the road.. The Morgan has clearly been well maintained, it's totally on the button and has recently been treated to a new heater, brake master cylinder and new battery.

PWM 958J presents very well with a high-quality Red paint finish. The paintwork is sharp, bright, chrome work is very good throughout with excellent bumpers and period 1970's hub caps. The Morgan comes with full weather equipment, is capable of all weather driving and with the added rear space is ideal of long-distance touring. This is a fantastic car, its superbly aged, extensively used and clearly treated to a high level of expenditure to keep it in such sharp condition.
