History of the Morgan 4/4:
Morgan 4/4 is an automobile which has been produced by the Morgan Motor Company since 1936. It was Morgan's first car with four wheels, the name indicating that the model has four wheels and four cylinders (earlier Morgans had been three-wheelers, typically with V-twin engines). Early publicity and advertising material variously referred to the model as "4/4", "4-4", "Four Four" and similar names, but from the outset, the factory designation was always "4/4". Apart from a break during World War II (and the period March 1951 to September 1955), the 4/4 has been in continuous production from its debut right up to the present day.
The 4/4 1600 was introduced in February 1968 fitted with a variety of Ford 1599 cc Kent engines of type 2737E (70 bhp), type 2737GT (95.5 bhp) and type 2265E (95.5 bhp) from 1971 and a Ford four-speed gearbox. A total of 3513 Morgan 1600 were built by March 1982.
