Although manufactured in 1961 (and thus fitted with the 2138cc Triumph TR4 engine), this Morgan Plus 4 was originally shipped to the USA used and registered abroad, receiving its British registration in October 2017. Since then it has had just one owner, the vendor. He bought it in 2016 and restored it from 2016 through to 2018, at a cost of £21,759. Most of these bills are in the paperwork folder, as is a Morgan chassis record (showing the car was originally Light Grey with red leather upholstery). The mileage shown on the odometer is 16,963 miles.  

The history file also includes the V5C, photos of the car during its  restoration, and recent MoT certificates ‑ although, as a 1961 car, the Morgan is now MoT‑exempt, with its last one expiring in October 2018. There's also books on 'Morgan: The Cars and the Factory' by John Tipler, 'Original Morgan 4/4, Plus 4 and Plus 8' by John Worrall and Liz Turner and 'Morgan Cars 1960‑1970' by Vic Berris plus a Brooklands' Morgan Four Owners' Workshop Manual and Buying Portfolio and a 1964 'Small Car' magazine and 2017 'Classic Motoring' magazine featuring Morgan articles.

Thanks to its recent restoration, the Morgan is in very good condition throughout. However, the engine, gearbox (Moss four‑speed) and rear axle numbers all still match the Morgan Motor Company certificate, which indicates they are original items. The two bonnet halves are also matching, as supported by the numbers stamped onto each half ‑ something that should impress all enthusiasts who prize originality.
