Further info:

The success of today's Morgan three-wheelers has inevitably reignited interest in the period versions. However, by the 1930s a proliferation of affordable four-wheeled cars was providing the company's traditional motorcycle-powered range with increasing competition. Morgan's initial response was the F4, which it launched at the 1933 Olympia Motorcycle Show. It was still a three-wheeler but boasted an all-new pressed steel chassis topped by a four-seat body, while power came from the 1172cc side-valve Ford engine as used in the Model Y. This approach certainly proved pretty popular, and the F4 continued in production for the next 19 years. The show quality example on offer is a 1948 model that's benefited from a comprehensive restoration in recent times. It is finished in the very attractive combination of Damask Red over Black bodywork combined with Black interior trim. The vendor has no hesitation in currently grading the engine, four-speed gearbox, bodywork, paintwork and upholstery as 'very good'.
