Where to begin ,
  Start with the basics :
A 1949 Morgan 4/4 Drophead coupe
Reg nu LFJ 46
With a 1267cc 4 cylinder engine.

Started life as a rolling chassis leaving the factory on the 8th of November 1949 where it was delivered to City Garages Exeter . Believed to be one of three chassis bought by the garage at the time , that were bodied with standard Drophead four seater coupe’s
( This is thought to be the sole survivor)

This actual car appears in the book
  “Morgan”. The last survivor by Chris Harvey on page 26 with a photograph and another photo On plate 5 . The book can explain more about model history Of the Morgan than I ever could . I do have a copy I might be able to include as it all adds to the history.
The car Itself has spent most of its life in a barn and now resides in a dry garage . Used very sparingly over the years and it is believed the mileage of 23671 is correct. It did make it out for a wedding in 1993 and had its last mot in 2001 .
However the car is in need of restoration and all areas will need some sort of attention. All depends on how good you want to be as it’s not really been touched since 1985 . It Is very sound underneath and the chassis is good . There is a history file .

It is running although from an auxiliary fuel tank . Only recently had the fuel lines and carb cleaned as well as fresh core plugs and it also moves under its own power but is crying out for a thrust bearing .
( In no way is this car roadworthy or would I attempt to drive it !!!!! ) . The dynamo just about charges at revs .

The only reason it’s up for sale now is I can not see it being restored and returned to the road any time soon as my work load increases. But parting with what could be a one of a kind Morgan is not easy as I doubt I will own another one of a kind . Will add that should any potential buyer wish to restore and sell on I would like the opportunity to buy it back

I have the original RF60 so can name all of the owners in its history adding mine to the list . Should you wish to join the list get in touch .

Surely a must for any serious Morgan collector
