Not yet purchased my first Morgan, but hoping to in the next few months.

Have a bit of family history with Morgans, Dad had an F type, and a +4, and my Grandad worked at Morgans from 1966 to 1975 - he will have built your ash wheel arches! smile

Looking out for an unrestored 4 seat 4/4 (my budget is a little limited) that was built by him.

Cheers

Phil

Welcome Phil a good bit of Morgan history and a great reason for getting a Morgan, I wish you luck and success with the search. Many people have found their way into ownership your way.

Good luck with the search. You are probably looking for a Ford 1500cc for the earlier years or a 1600 "Crossflow" engined car for later years. Both are nice cars, but finding an unrestored one may take a while . Most of that age will have had at least one rebuild.

Cheers.

My main priority is an unrestored frame - even if I have to replace it shortly afterwards I'd like to keep a bit of his work smile

I'm fairly adept at maintenance, used to have a brace of 60's Land Rovers, and currently have 8 motorbikes in various states of (dis)repair!
