Can any reader throw some light on an unusual Morgan which I am interested in? It left the factory as a chassis on the 18.2.49, purchased by Vests of Lincoln, Chassis No. 1834, Engine No. Q471E, registered 9.6.49 DFE 983 as a 2-seater. The engine is a Standard with o.h.c. conversion, 1,267 c.c., which surely is quite rare, but the most interesting point is that the frame timbers of the body were outside the panels as on some estate cars of the period.
The engine and chassis have been rebuilt and the wings repaired. Now the decision has to be made regarding the body which has almost rotted away. Any information on this or a similar vehicle will be apreciated.
