1964 Plus 4, No. 5610, TR4A, engine, Dual Zenith Stromberg CD175 (replaced original carbs in 1981. Carbs were mfg for 1969-1970 Jaguar XKE)
Approximately 17,700 miles
Purchased from David Chiles in High Point, NC in Dec. 1980. David rebuilt the car prior to my ownership in 1978, 10,000 miles.
Mechanicals restoration in 1982. Restored chrome parts, gauges, wiring harness, new teak dashboard, leather interior and exterior paint, some upgrades like PL1 headlights. New interior leather, new British wool carpeting. Frame coated with zinc chromate primer and gloss black Rustoleum. All fasteners replaced with SS. Finish was changed from BRG to dark blue with clear coat applied.
In 1996, at 14,000 miles in anticipation of a 3 year UK move, body panels removed, stripped own, checked for rust, re-primed and painted the current bright red with two clear coats. At the same time, the wood frame was inspected and showed no beginnings of dry rot, and the frame was repainted with an architectural gloss black epoxy based coating.
In 2015, at 17,000, rubber parts, gaskets, brake shoes, hoses, sliding pillars replaced. Engine completely rebuilt. New clutch, starter, speedo cable installed and Carbs rebuilt. Petronix electronic ignition installed. New gas tank and fuel sender installed.
In 2019, Chrome spoke wire wheels and knock offs replace the painted originals. New tubeless Michelin radials.
To bring the car to 100% – new carpets, a new temp gauge sender and the 60 year old leather could stand a refresh. The car has been garaged 100% since 1982 and I know has only seen the rain twice in the last 40 years.
I wouldn’t be selling it if it wasn’t for my wife’s concerns about driving it around a city like Charlotte. Huge SUV’s don’t even notice the little red roadster in the right lane next to them before switching lanes!
The car is vic of Charlotte NC. For pick up, the car would have to be paid for and bill of sale executed. Same for shipping. Buyer would have to arrange for shipping from North Carolina. Contact Seller for More Information or Pictures.

We all know of Lee Gaskins and his treasure trove of Morgan items! Well he is now willing to part with a few of his favorite toys!
Lee’s son helped him make the video. I suspect a video was the right way to go as an enumerated list would be exhaustive!!
Lee would love to find a buyer that wanted it all, however, I suspect he will entertain other options.
The Moss Box Plus 8 is gone but Lee still has a totally restored white Super Sport , a Drop Head Coupe and a 37 MGTC. You might also note the 1952 Morgan Flat Rad project in the video. (Clink Link Below to watch the video.)

Current SVRA log book #17-006 Morgan Vintage Race Car, 1959 4/4. Engine built by Bob Wagner Motor Sports in Decatur (Atlanta), GA. 1364 cc 5 main with billet crank, titanium rods and Carrillo pistons.
The engine was built for easy maintenance and is currently only running at 8.9-1 compression with a dry sump and Kent Rally cam #244.
The transmission is a Quaife Rocket Box with dog engagement.
The Morgan, when purchased almost 4 years ago, had been nicely restored for street use and lots of equipment has been added to bring it up to racing specifications.
The paint is not as pretty as it once was and does show chips and scratches from racing. I am 5’ 11”, 185 lbs and about the maximum size person that will fit in the car.
I just ran Put-In-Bay Vintage Races and recommend that whoever buys the Morgan return to PIB again next year. The Hoosier tires on the Morgan have one more race weekend on them, other than that the Morgan is ready for next year’s racing.

The factory stopped making the 4 Seater a few years ago, so only the vintage 4 Seaters are available now. There are many reasons to love the Plus 4, 4 Seater. I know I certainly do. And, this is a good one! $20,000
