A landmark model in the Morgan timeline
First seen in 1950, the Morgan Plus 4 was a larger and more powerful derivative of the company's 4/ 4 and has remained in production on and off for over 60 years now. Up until 1969, it was powered by the four-cylinder engines found in the Triumph TR range, which were mated to a four-speed manual gearbox with well-spaced ratios. The rakish body was mounted on a variant of Morgan's familiar Z section chassis, underslung at the rear. The suspension was independent by sliding pillars and coil springs at the front and a live axle on semi-elliptic springs at the rear. Braking was by drums all-round and steering by a Burman cam and sector system. As tested by Autosport's John Bolster, the 100bhp 1991cc Triumph-engined Plus Four would accelerate to 60mph in 9. 6 seconds and on to a top speed of a whisker under 105mph.

This Plus Four was first registered on the 5th of December 1952 and is a late 'flat rad' example. Entering current ownership in 2017, the V5C shows that the Morgan was retained in previous ownership since the year 2000. Shortly thereafter ‘PKN 28’ was treated to a major engine overhaul costing in the region of £2, 000. In 2008, the Plus Four was the subject of a comprehensive 'body off' restoration carried out by TT Workshops Ltd of Westbury, Wiltshire at a cost of approximately £26, 000 (with numerous bills and photographs of the process on file). Benefitting from servicing and brake system checks in 2021 in preparation for sale, ‘PKN 28’ is offered with a history file that comprises a current V5C Registration Certificate, an instruction book, some past MOT certificates and the photographs and invoices relating to the restoration.
