“This second volume of Ken Hill’s story of The Four-Wheeled Morgan, which supplements his earlier work on the flat-radiator models, brings the history of this most classic of sports cars up into the 1980s. Although the basic concept and design of Morgans have changed little enough over a period of 45 years, there have been many subtle improvements along the way and a surprisingly wide variety of models have been manufactured, as the author explains in his opening chapter. He follows this with a detailed look at Morgan’s remarkably widespread and versatile competition history with the cowled-radiator cars over more than a quarter of a century, and at the many Morgan car clubs throughout the world through which so much of the competition activity has been channelled and such universal regard and enthusiasm for Morgan sports cars has been fostered. Having covered the practical aspects of Morgan ownership, including maintenance, repair and restoration to concours standard, in his earlier book, Ken Hill has now provided his readers with a clearer understanding of the firm bond which exists between owners and devotees of this uniquely enduring sports cars.”
