BARN REVEALS WELSH RAREBITS
1938 Morgan among cars left for 40 years
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.
