1938 Mor­gan among cars left for 40 years

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News - www.clywydauc­

A three-owner 1938 Mor­gan two-seater that has been off the road for more than 40 years comes un­der the ham­mer in April at Dee­side-based Cl­wyd Car Auc­tions.

Part of an es­tate sale, it’s of­fered along­side a need­ing restora­tion 1953 Bris­tol 403, a 1953 Ford Anglia E494A and a 1961 Land Rover 88in, as well as poor-con­di­tion Tri­umph Dolomite and a BSA mo­tor­cy­cle. Two other Dolomites from the same site were fit only for break­ing up for parts.

The ‘flat-rad’ Mor­gan’s odome­ter reads 22,000 miles and it comes with plenty of his­tory and a buff logbook.

‘It was be­hind a car­a­van that we had to break up so we could get the Mor­gan out,’ says Cl­wyd Car Auc­tions’ boss Des Lewis. ‘The cars came from two over­grown prop­er­ties in the area. The Bris­tol has been out­side since the early 1970s and needs a full restora­tion, but the Anglia is com­plete

and has a very good orig­i­nal in­te­rior. One of the rear wings has been dam­aged but a re­place­ment comes with the car.’

The auc­tion will be at Clywd Auc­tion Cen­tre, Holy­well Road, Ewloe, Dee­side, Flintshire on Mon­day 25 April at 5pm.

In­cluded in the Clywd auc­tion in April (left to right) are a 1938 Mor­gan, 1953 Ford Anglia, 1953 Bris­tol 403, 1961 Land Rover 88in, and a BSA mo­tor­cy­cle.

The 1953 Bris­tol 403 had been left out­side

since the 1970s and needs full restora­tion.
