Car has 2 windscreen setups: The most interesting is a distinctive raised Brooklands windshield bar, with 2 custom tear-drop mirrors. The other is a completely stock, un-used NOS top, windshield and side windows. Car has a boot and a full tonneau. Also a badge bar, un-used, in its own case; and an additional custom case- not sure for what. Included is a left side mirror to attach with the original windshield; plus an easy-to-install vacuum rear view mirror for inside the car.

It is one of the best-driving Morgans. Fast, great cornering, rattle-free. Originally sold through Fergus Motors, N. Broadway, New York, the only U.S. dealer at the time. Comes with original correspondence from 1962-3 from the dealer, including base price and options. Has won several local car shows and concours events.

Documents include original brochure, original price list, Melvyn Rutter catalog; Morgan Spares parts catalog, and all other receipts (not many, since driven so little).

Morgan +4 Operating Information


Put in neutral. Do not depress the clutch (to avoid clutch wear.) Pull out and hold the choke. Turn key and let the fuel pump begin for 2 seconds.
Then, turn on the engine. Continue to hold the choke for 8-10 seconds.


Car runs best on 100+ octane fuel. You may choose to use an octane booster. Runs on 91, but sometimes will ‘diesel’ or run on for a second when engine is turned off.

Carburetor Oiling

Unscrew the black knurled knob on each of the 2 carbs. Remove with attached rod and brass plunger set. With your finger raise the slide, the first obstruction just inside the carb throat; gently push up with finer while watching the hole- you will see a small tube/cylinder. Fill that tube almost to the top. 1/16” below the top is good, not critical. Use a light weight oil…5 wt or SU carb oil. Make sure slides are free and the tubes oiled. Slide down. Replace and tighten the black knob.


Use a knock off hammer to loosen the wheels before jacking the car up.
Knock off in the direction of the wheels forward rotation. To the right on the right passenger side; to the left on the driver’s side.
Place scissor jack under the intersection of chassis crossmembers.
Take off spinner and wheel
