Conceived in 1935, the introduction of the 4/4 signalled Morgan’s move to 4 wheeled vehicles and the beginning of the next chapter in Morgan history. On the 15th of October 1936, the eagerly anticipated 4/4 debuted at the London Motor Show, held at Olympia. The modest 4/4 was a lightweight, affordable runabout that had been proven in local trials with great success across the UK. This model has been a stalwart of the Morgan model range since its inception 80 years ago, and despite a short break during WWII, has been in continuous production ever since.

Period Smiths dials with cream faces and brass embellishers are a jewel-like detail against the matte lacquered walnut dashboard.
