15k: Patina Up The Kazoo: 1966 Morgan 4/4

The Morgan Motor Car company first started producing 3-wheeled cars in 1910, and ventured to less tipsy cars with the release of the 4/4 (4 wheels, 4 cylinders) in 1936.  Oddly enough, Morgan was one of the few British automobile manufacturers to not get swept up in the British Leyland fiasco, and the family owned company is still hand building cars out of a small factory in  Malvern, Worcestershire, UK. I don’t claim any expertise on vintage lumber pricing, but this 1966 Morgan 4/4 currently bidding here on eBay for $12,600 with a few hours to go looks like a decent deal if the reserve is close. 

This 4/4 comes from the Series V generation and is powered by a  1.5 liter Ford Cortina 116E engine that pushes 65 horsepower into a four-speed gearbox.  Typical advice to “watch out for rust” in a British car of this vintage is still advised, but you’ve got to keep an eye out for termites because this thing lives on a wood frame
