The Morgan 4/4 was built for 50 years. the first model, introduced in the year 1936 was the 4/4 with flat radiator which was built until the year 1951. After a four year break (only the Morgan plus 4 was built those years) the Morgan 4/4 was going to be rebuild. The car did not change a lot (conservative as they are at the Morgan company), only the shape of the radiator changed from flat to cowled. Morgan never built their own engine, the early flat radiator cars were powered by Standard or Ford engines. The cowled radiator models were powered by Ford engines. The Ford engine used was known as the "Kent" engine and was also used in Fords Cortina model. Morgan 4/4 1600 cars were powered by the 1599 cc. Ford Kent engine which had a standard capacity of 98 bhp. giving the light car (two seater 660 kg./ four seater 785 kg.) sporty performance. The cars were fitted with a four speed manual gearbox.
