Made with a heart - Morgan 4/4 & Roadster.

Today I'll be going through the Morgan Factory again looking at the production of the classic 4/4 and Roadster models, which share the same galvanised steel ladder chassis as the old +8.

the Roadster and 4/4 still have a solid rear axle.

Super formed aluminium panels are bonded with the ash frame.

After painting has been completed a 4/4 has its interior trim fitted.

Hope you enjoyed these factory tours, well worth a visit in person if you get the opportunity.

Tomorrow I'll be revealing a Morgan scoop made very much with the discerning Jimmy 'Golf Cart' Johnson four time Sprint Cup Champion in mind, Don't forget to come back now !
