Following an 84 year production run, the Morgan Motor Company has built its last four wheeled car on a traditional steel framed chassis in 2020, marking the end of an era for the company. 27 years after its inception, the Morgan Motor Company launched its first four-wheeled car in 1936,. The four by four was based on an all-new steel chassis, featuring a unique ‘sliding pillar’ front suspension design. The venerable chassis would go on to underpin almost every four-wheeled Morgan model from that point on, including the famous Plus 4. In total, thirty five thousand four-wheeled Morgan cars with a steel chassis have been made, exported to 65 countries around the world. Many of these models, adored by their owners, are still in active use today.

Now, 84 years on, the last steel chassis Morgan has rolled off the production line at Morgan’s Pickersleigh Road factory. It makes the underpinning the longest-ever running production car architecture. The car in question, a Plus 70th Edition, is doubly significant, it also being the last of 20 cars built to celebrate seven decades of the model. Purchased by a long-time Morgan enthusiast, it will sit alongside a host of famous cars from Morgan’s past, including the Le Mans-winning Plus 4 TOK 258.

Morgan’s current range of four-wheeled cars, the Plus Four and Plus Six, are based on the bonded aluminium CX-Generation platform, which was introduced in 2019. While almost a century newer in technical capability, it maintains the level of driving pleasure that has always defined Morgan sports cars.
