Chassis no. 4702; Engine no. IS80195ME. Midnight Blue with black top over black vinyl. 1991/90hp, 4-speed, chrome wire wheels, driving lights, badge bar, luggage rack, rear-mounted spare, spotlight, side curtains, woodrim steering wheel, Smiths gauges other than an added Stewart Warner water temp gauge, tool roll.

Evaluation: Located in Florida. Represented as a running and driving car in need of some further servicing before serious use. Lightly aged seats and carpets. Tired older paint that doesn’t look like it was very high quality to begin with and now shows minor chips, cracks, and scratches throughout. Choke cable won’t stay pulled out. Clean older restored engine bay. Solid but a bit grimy underneath. An old restoration starting to show its age. It looks like a solid driver that has probably just been sitting for a bit too long.

Bottom Line: It’s a bit too late for winter projects, but this would be a perfect car to tinker on and tackle small jobs to get it ready for driving season. Parts are available, as many mechanical bits were borrowed from Triumph. And Morgan, which is still in business, will happily supply anything else one might need. The price here is spot on for a Plus 4 in this condition, too, giving the new owner plenty of room to make little fixes without getting underwater.
