THE MORGAN + 4
In 1950, the new Plus 4 appeared, with a 2,088 cc Standard (later Triumph) engine producing 68bhp and delivering an 85mph top speed. The Plus 4 also featured a stiffer frame, improved front suspension, and Girling hydraulic brakes. Three body styles were offered: the two-seater, the four-seater, and the drop-head coupe.
RMA 491 was first registered in 1953. It is believed it started life as a flat-radiator Plus 4, 2-seater roadster before being returned to the factory to be converted to the round nose design she wears today. The car is fitted with the Triumph TR2 four-cylinder engine and Moss four-speed gearbox.
The current owner acquired the car in 2011 and was its fourth owner from new. Having previously been competed on several occasions at Etretat Hill Climb, RMA 491 enjoyed further light competition at the Frazer Nash Driving Test, but was predominantly enjoyed as a summer pub car. In 2017 over £5,000 was spent with DES Engineering of Droitwich Spa doing a general overhaul of the car which involved the removal of engine, gearbox, bulkhead and all front end bodywork. Since then, the Morgan has remained in dry storage. Having not seen regular use in some time, the Morgan has emerged from storage and was recently serviced. It is finished in Old English White with black leather seats. Its classically styled two-seater body, with its cut-down, rear-hinged doors, is backed by a slab-style gas tank and twin spares. The original steel disc wheels are painted black with correct chromed Morgan hubcaps. Overall, the car has a charming appeal and despite the fact the consignor notes that the paintwork is showing some deterioration, the Morgan remains very presentable some 60 years after it rolled off the production line.
