MWS – Morgan Motor Company OEM Wire Wheels Provider

Motor wheel service is renowned worldwide for the manufacture and restoration of vintage, veteran and classic wire. Motor Wheel Service International Limited was originally founded as Motor Wheel Service and Repair Co. in 1927 on Becklow Road, London. In 1947, after working there for a number of years, George Smith took ownership and spurred the growth of the company until it had expanded enough to move to new premises on Jeddo Road in 1969. In 1974 MWS was appointed as an official UK distributor for wire, light commercial, car, caravan steel and alloy wheels by Dunlop Ltd. George Smith was becoming affectionately known as “George the Wheel” due to his knowledge and experience within the industry. George’s reputation led to MWS being awarded exclusive UK distribution rights by Dunlop Ltd for all wire wheels in 1978. During these years George was making sure his son, Colin, was being...

Interview with Matthew Humphries on Morgan DNA

An interview with Matthew Humphries, Head of Design at Morgan Motor Company. Morgan DNA – the honesty with which Morgan uses materials such wood, leather and metals. We believe that Morgan’s have always been engineered in a way that reflects the family values of Morgan. All materials that we use are used in an honest manner.  From my research within Morgan, investigating the 100 years of history of building cars here in Malvern, it was the honesty with which materials are used that stood out. We use wood, for example, in its natural form and only make the wood perform to the boundaries of it’s natural ability. In some cars there is a metal console with a wooden veneer laid over the top – that doesn’t sit well with our definition of ‘honesty.’ Wood can be used for the natural qualities which it possesses and...

The Future of Morgan

Morgan confirms development of megnesium and aluminum. In a brief chat with The Telegraph, managing director of Morgan, Charles Morgan, talked about how the tiny UK automaker will navigate the future. Morgan believes that as long as the company can find a way to exploit niche products that the big automakers can’t or won’t do, and if his firm can be a test bed for new technologies, then there’s a way to retain both the Morgan spirit and independence. One of those upcoming technologies could be a new chassis material of magnesium and aluminum. The combination would allow Morgan to form its panels in the traditional way, but make them 20 percent lighter. You can watch him lay out the company’s present and future in the video below, and no matter the material we hope it includes the EvaGT.

Morgan Motor and OAK Racing place an impressive 6th at the European Le Mans Series Opener

  OAK Racing overcome tough ELMS opener to take sixth at Paul Ricard     1st April 2012. OAK Racing began their European Le Mans Series campaign with a top-six finish at the 6 Hours of Le Castellet in France today in spite of several mechanical problems plaguing the team throughout the race. The driver crew of Jacques Nicolet, Guillaume Moreau and Dominik Kraihamer were forced to overcome an overheating engine, triggered by falling water pressure, to bring the Onroak Automotive-designed and built #24 Morgan 2012 LMP2 home sixth overall. A trouble-free opening stint from Kraihamer initially suggested the team would be in contention for a podium finish. Those hopes were dashed however after the opening round of pit-stops when, following a tactical decision not to change tyres, the Austrian’s pace suffered dramatically as degradation took its toll. An earlier than scheduled second stop saw fresh...
