(1950-present over three separate production runs)
This more powerful version of the 4/4 was introduced in late 1950, the +4 initially featuring 2.1 Standard Vanguard power. Triumph TR units were soon substituted, and Morgan received successive engines in parallel with the TR range to 1968 when the firm switched to Ford power.
The +4 was dropped a year later, only to be revived in 1985 to fill the gap in the range between the 4/4 and the Plus 8. It was canned by the company again in 2000, only to be brought back again in 2005.
The +4 also formed the basis for the Super Sports, which was conceived by Morgan legend, Chris Lawrence. His LawrenceTune entry was a class winner at Le Mans in 1962, the Actonbased racer and sometime car designer sharing driving duties with Richard Shepherd-Barron. The conversion was adopted as a production model and survivors are now highly-prized.
