The Car Barn are pleased to offer this stunning 1939 Morgan Flat Rad which has been subject to recent restoration work.
The car has been comprehensively rebuilt by Morgan fanatics and craftsmen to very high standards.
The previous owner reports that every mechanical aspect of the car received attention including the Coventry Climax 1098 cc engine, the four-speed Moss gearbox rebuilt by George Proudfoot, rear axle, suspension springs and steering. The interior was restored and retrimmed and a full tonneau cover fitted, a full hood and side screens being deemed unnecessary at this point. All the chromework was replaced or re-plated and the original Morgan panels were treated to several coats of gleaming Ford Deep Blue.
Interestingly, the car is powered by a 1098cc Climax, an engine earmarked for the 4/4 'Le Mans Replica' announced in February 1939. Although 24cc less than the standard engine, the cylinder head, valves and other parts were all carefully polished and the crankshaft fully balanced, resulting in the smaller engine being the more powerful.
'This Flat Rad is a really nice example. A great way into classic Morgan ownership. A car you can enjoy looking after all year round, or driving with the roof off to have a picnic. Not the fastest car in the world, however it's more about the experience with these and really feeling involved in the driving experience. This car has had lots of money spent on it and is ready to go and enjoy!'
