The Morgan is a motor industry phenomenon. In a small town in Malvern, Worcester, England, there is a factory run by Peter Morgan and his son, Charles, where the Morgan 4/4, +8 and +4 are still built. They, and the workforce of just under 100, lovingly produce about ten of the hand-built, ash-framed cars per week while the waiting list continues to grow. At last count it was four years long or more.
Peter took over from his father, HFS Morgan, who built a three-wheeled car, with the world’s first independent front suspension, in 1909. Friends and acquaintances all wanted one, and in 1912 the Morgan Motor Company was founded.
