Homages to pioneers of great design
Morgan 4/4 The First 75 Years, by Michael Palmer.
The Morgan Motor Company itself is ‘batting’ just over a century in cricketing terms, but the Morgan 4/4 as an automobile within the Morgan marque has been 75 years in production and is surely the very DNA of this traditional manufacturer.
Morgan 4/4 The First 75 Years take the reader from conception and development through the full history of production and even gives a glimpse at future departures.
To this day all Morgan’s are still handmade. This book takes a behind-thescenes look within the production facility, in the small town of Malvern in Worcestershire, England.
