Result inc Premium: £16,740
  • Chassis number: F493
First registered in August 1938, by the late 1970s this brightly‑finished 1172cc Ford‑engined Morgan was reported to be in a poor state. It was completely rebuilt in 1980 and then taken over to Ireland, where it was re‑registered in March 1981. The vendor purchased it in 1997, after which it received a full repaint in 2012 and an engine rebuild in 2013. Recent attention has involved new tyres being fitted during 2021.

The paperwork includes correspondence with the Morgan Three‑Wheeler Club Ltd, which believed (at least in 2009) that this was the very first Morgan to be referred to as an F‑Super and was exhibited at shows during 1937 before being sold to a private owner. There are also the Irish registration documents, some photos showing engine work, and a 1985 Morgan Three‑Wheeler Club reprint of the owner's handbook.

The odometer shows 7350 miles covered. Please note that if the car is not to be returned to Southern Ireland where it is currently registered, import duty at 5% of the total invoice amount will be payable by the purchaser.
