Morgan Three Wheeler

 

We’re building up a collection of earlier photos, films and video clips to share with everyone. If you have any information about any of the films or videos then please drop a note to the website and let us know so that we can update the details.

We’re building the page slowly and incorporating existing photos as we have the time… Please keep coming back!

The photos are intended to allow the identification of different models rather than being a definitive specification, hence only visible features are mentioned.

200 mile1924 – The 200 mile light car race at Brooklands.  The Morgan appears briefly from about 50 seconds.   Films & Photos

1932 Sports Family

A development of the ‘Sporting 4 Seater’ this model was released in 1931 and ran until 1937.  A combination of the Sports front end and the Family rear.  For 1931 the car was still a two speeder but from 1932 onward incorporated a gearbox, which meant that the gearstick moved inside the car.  From 1933 onward the car was fitted with interchangeable magna wheels plus doors.

  Films & Photos

The car in the modern photo has been fitted with larger front brakes and extra rear lights but looks otherwise much as it did when it left the factory.

1929 – Maiden flight of the R101 from Cardington.

A Morgan drives past in the foreground.  Probably just one of the thousands of sightseers who came out to witness the spectacle that day

       
F 71961 – A nice Aero for sale at a Beaulieu auction. Do you recognise the driver?

The car has been on permanent display at Beaulieu motor museum for some years and has turned green.

       
F 5

1933 – A reliability trial near Stratford-on-Avon. This features a 2 Speeder Aero with “WP” registration. Who’s driving?

       

F 9          

1954 – Doctor in the House.

Kidnapping of a stuffed gorilla mascot results in a chase by some interesting vehicles, one of which is a Morgan.  This is the complete film and the chase appears between 1:04 and 1:07.  The number plate does flash by very briefly.  Can anyone make it out?

f 122003 – Salvage Squad (TV rather than movie)

Something of a cautionary tale about what non-club “experts” regard as a full restoration.

1979 – The London Connection.

These are the Morgan clips from a film that was so dreadful that it never came out on DVD (hence the poor print quality).   The flower salesman deserves a medal for bravery though.

1965 – Oulton Park.  The first VSCC Meeting to which we were invited.  For a full report of the event see our web page here.
