Vintage Morgan F2 three wheeler

1936 F2 Morgan for sale. This car has been on various internet sites during February 2011 and is now also advertised in various Classic Car and Classic Bike magazines. I have had a lot of interest and offers so have decided it should be put up for auction. I have already had offers of £17500 so this is the reserve .

I have had quite a bit of experience with Morgan Three Wheelers (over 24 years) both rebuilding and driving. I rebuilt this car during 2008 / 2009 intending to keep it for myself. Unfortunately after only 900 miles of use in 2010 a change of plans means it is now for sale.

Pre war Morgan Three Wheelers are welcome at Vintage car and Vintage motorcycle events.

This car won the Mercury trophy (overall concours) at the Morgan Three Wheeler Club AGM in October 2010. It’s a very attractive car!

Recent extensive rebuild :-

I rebuilt the chassis using new chassis members. Using the original torque tube, etc allowed me to keep the chassis number and original registration number. Modifications such as corner gussets and extra cross member. It has the iron type bellhousing which is better than the later clamp up alloy type. Twin type 2 piece prop shaft with centre bearing. Also original cross head which was repaired to as – new. No modifications can be seen in the completed car. It looks exactly correct for 1936 F2 Morgan

All new body frame constructed by professional (ex Morgan Motor Co) woodworker Richard Williams of Malvern using correct ash, etc. Richard has many years experience constructing Morgan ash frames and has included subtle modifications to enhance rigidity and durability. He also added extra internal luggage lockers behind the seats. Externally it is exactly to 1935 Morgan F2 appearance.

All new body panels constructed by professional (ex Morgan Motor Co) panel maker David Cale of Malvern. Single door on passenger side as per original. Panels all steel except door and bonnets which are alloy as original. David’s work demonstrates the superior quality only achieved by fully trained Morgan Motor Co metalworkers and is exactly to 1935 Morgan F2 specification.

Dampers fitted on all 3 wheels. New springs front, re set rear, new front suspension sliders (not old ones rebushed). Remachined rear suspension trunnions (by professional Morgan Three Wheeler engineer Pat Bastock who also did the conversion to twin type 2 piece prop shaft with centre bearing).

Original 18 inch Magna wheels front + spare (newly plastic coated dark green) and 16 x 5 rear wheel which gives greatly improved tyre life. New tyres all round.

With all the above this car was built to handle properly.

Unlike most F Types this car handles as well, if not better, than a Morgan twin (I know, I have one. ITS NOT FOR SALE ).

New radiator incorporating a modern core. No overheating and beautiful appearance. Electric fan fitted for (very) hot days.

Standard 3 speed and reverse Morgan gearbox rebuilt including all new bearings. New worm and wheel ( very expensive ).

Original Ford E93A 10hp type engine completely rebuilt. Bores, pistons, mains & big ends, valves & springs. Single SU carburettor on one – off cast alloy manifold( much better than original Zenith ). Engine smooth with excellent starting. (Video shows starting on very cold morning) !

Front brakes converted to M/Minor 8 inch tls hydraulic using MTWC expert Roger Orford conversion parts. Better hubs, bearings and brakes than original.

Rear brake original Morgan twin – type brake, relined, floating cam conversion and used just as parking brake.

All new 12v electrics with alternator. New wiring throughout. Indicators fitted. New polished stainless steel halogen headlamps.

Nice walnut dash with accurate electric speedo, oil pressure gauge and temperature gauge.

New chain + sprocket.

All new stainless steel exhaust.
