1959 Morgan Plus 4 Drophead Coupe "Triumph Powered"
We are excited to present this rare 1959 Morgan Plus 4 Drophead Coupe - Blue on Black and manufactured in Worcestershire, England. This vehicle came into production the same year founder HFS Morgan passed away and the company celebrated its 50th anniversary. Morgan’s are legends in the automotive world and this ’59 Plus 4 is no exception, climbing to new heights when the TR2 engine was replaced by the 100hp TR3 engine, allowing the coupe rapidly accelerate beyond 100mph. The TR3 was an engineering feat in its day, produced by Triumph as a 4-cylinder 1991cc with 8.5:1 compression, Twin SU induction, 100hp at 5000rpm, 117lb ft. at 3000rpm, iron block/head, ohv pushrod valvegear, Borg & Beck s.d.p. clutch and 4-speed Moss manual transmission. It also has a Z-section chasis, Burman/Cam & peg steering and 11-inch Girling disc brakes. 1808 of these cars were produced from 1956-64 and you won’t find many in such great shape as the one offered here. Equipped with rear-hinged ‘suicide’ doors and rare side curtains, this Plus 4 was the new standard in style and performance of its time. It’s timeless appeal and low production volume makes this beauty a car-collector favorite. She still performs like the “real sportscar” Morgan envisioned her to be – starts and runs excellent. The sheet metal and wood structure are also in excellent condition and all upkeep restorations have been done with precision. All books and records available, including an in-depth 1992 appraisal. Call or e-mail for more information.
