1936 Morgan 3 Wheeler F2, full restoration For Sale

The first Morgans were three wheelers and it wasn’t until 1936 that Morgan introduced its first four wheel “car”, the 4/4, for four seats and four wheels. The three wheelers were phased out in 1952 by which time Morgan had introduced a bigger engined, high performance car designated Plus 4 to be produced alongside the 4/4. Subsequently Morgan introduced the Plus 4 Plus and whilst each of their models continued to evolve, during the late fifties and early to mid-sixties Morgan was seen to be “stale and producing more of the same” and many pundits thought the brand was indeed “dated and may fade away”. Peter Morgan had other ideas and in 1968 he introduced the Plus 8. Morgan production rolled on throughout the seventies, eighties and nineties, producing the 4/4, Plus 4 and Plus 8 models. In more recent times Morgan has become more progressive and built a number of high end cars and indeed a supercar (the Morgan Aeromax) and even reintroduced the three wheeler in 2011 to critical acclaim. The Morgan F2 and F4 means Ford engine 2 seater and 4 seater. Fitted with either an 8 hp or 10 hp Ford side valve engine with a three speed gearbox including reverse. There’s no doubt the sole of Morgan remains in the early years I am delighted to offer for sale my 1936 Morgan F2. The Morgan archives confirm that chassis number F248 was delivered on the 29th February 1936 to Marshalls of London. Little is known of the cars early history, however the Buff Log Book shows that from 29th July 1955 the car was re-registered, having been re-built by Maurice R Budge from Plymouth as a four seater, and as I understand it for family use. I can only surmise she was driven from London to Plymouth during the War and the previous owner didn’t make it through, leaving the car there. Since then there have been 4 owners, all in Plymouth when she was parked up in June 1973 by the last owner, an engineer with the intentions of a full restoration, not ever to be carried out due to the usual family pressures. I bought the Morgan F2 10 years ago looking forward to a new project after completing and selling a Morgan 4/4 4 seater. But what started as a general rebuild turned out eventually into a nut and bolt restoration. Although not what I was expecting, it has been an enjoyable journey, and I believe that what I have ended with is a beautiful example of a delightful car. Having only just completed her, every part of the F2 is crisp and new or restored. So much has been done I couldn’t possibly list it all, but needless to say everything has been done. She is very reliable and drives well but will need running in. It will be very sad to see her go but the fun for me is the restoration and new projects are waiting. This is a very driveable car which is what makes them so endearing, the Three Wheel Owners Club seen is as ever popular and I can see her out on a regular basis pottering around the country delighting her new owners. The Morgan F2 is not only beautiful but rare and steadily going up in price as they become increasingly collectable.
