1947 Morgan F-Super
Sporty four-cylinder three-wheeler Morgan; great fun; original car in regular use; belived one of 92 post-war F-Supers made; two-seater model with bonnet louvres and cycle wings
Introduced in 1933, the F-series Morgans used a clever Z-shaped chassis which supported the independent suspension up front and curved in at the back to support its three-speed gearbox cum bevel box.
Initially sold as a family four-seater (F4) and two-seater (F2), an F-Super joined the range in 1937 which had sportier lines thanks to cycle wings and a louvred bonnet.
They offered excellent performance from their 933cc side-valve Ford engines, thanks to minimal weight and excellent road holding - to drive a Morgan three-wheeler today is still a revelation in terms of comfort and stability, its single wheel being at the right end of the car!
Production carried on until 1952, although by then output was very limted as the firm had carved its niche making sports cars rather than vehicles for the family motorist and they were busy with 4/4 and Plus 4 production.
This 1947 model comes with little in the way of history, but came into the vendor's hands in 2016 when he imported it from Ireland. He has used it regularly and improved it along the way, fitting an aluminium radiator and electric fan and generally getting it to run as it should.
There are numerous storage areas under and behind the seats and it comes with a suitcase rack for overnight trips. Running and driving with some zest, there are a few cosmetic jobs which would transform the car with relative ease.
Only on offer due to an expanding family and an F4 on the horizon, this car offers a lot of smiles per mile and looks good value at the suggested guide price - F-Supers being particuarly thin on the ground.
