Not sure if this has reached this forum but the auction catalog describes it as follows: "A 1949 Morgan 4/4 drophead coupé, registration number LFJ 46, chassis number 1912, engine number Q595E, maroon.
Morgan records state that chassis 1912 was dispatched from their factory on 19th November 1949 as a running chassis en route to Peamore Garages, Exeter. One of three running chassis’s the firm bodied with Standard drophead coupé coachwork and it is believed that 1912 is the sole survivor."

Comparing the two cars (Standard Triumph 2000) I doubt very much that this car is actually bodied with a 'Standard' body as there would have been too much 'cut and shut' and the doors are nowhere near the same - certainly in the style of but not from a 2000.

Does anyone know any more about the origins of this unique vehicle https://www.charterhouse-auction.com/classic-car-sale-catalogue lot 55?

By the way, Peamore Garage as such no longer exists.

Previous thread on it here. I notice they have a 1969 4/4 Competition - Lot 31 - being offered as well.
