1949 Morgan Sports 4/4 Roadster


The Morgan 4/4 is a nimble and agile drivers’ car. The combination of lightweight and skinny tyres makes for a perfect entry level sports car. Having been in production since 1936, the 4/4 is the longest running production vehicle in the world and has built up iconic status during that time. A combination of Superformed and hand formed aluminium body panels help to make the 4/4 the lightest car in the Morgan classic range, weighing just 795kg.

Purchased by its previous vendor 16 years ago, this wonderful example underwent a ground-up restoration in the UK prior to its importation into South Africa in 2014. More recently the roadster has received further refinement including a Bare Metal Respray carried out in Johannesburg by Specialist Body Shop “Dino’s Cassics”, which has brought the car to its current fantastic condition. Described to drive exceptionally well, the Morgan is ready for all weather conditions having been fitted with a new soft-top and side screens. One of only four examples in South Africa.
