I had a wonderful opportunity of rebuilding the body of a 1922 Morgan de Luxe three wheeler motor car.
This was a daunting task because not one of these vehicles were built the same. I had to work off blue prints and an existing body that was in itself a rebuild in plywood. Between old drawings, photographs and the decisions of the owner, we eventually made it.
These vehicles were originally made in Ash, so we went back to using Ash as the rebuild of this car was in plywood and very crudely constructed.
Picture 1. Shows the beginning of construction in Ash.
Picture 2. Shows all the blue prints, plans and photographs.
Picture 3. Shows the back view of the vehicle with the single wheel cover.
Picture 4. Shows the first of the metal parts being fitted.
Picture 5. Shows the top view of the interior.
Picture 6. The original Morgan de Luxe, 1922 model.
Now that I am finished with my woodworking bit, and as soon as the owner has completed the vehicle, I will post more pictures.
