Engine mounted in front. Crank start. Ignition by magneto. Cone clutch. Oil lubrication by Drip Feed ie. Oil drip control from dashboard adjustment , seen dripping through a glass instrument. Oil just drops onto the rockers and springs and onto the ground

The latest 3 wheel Morgan costs 30,000 pounds in UK.
I spent all my money buying old cars , instead of watches then. It is much cheaper to keep watches , without restoration & repair bills , road tax and insurance. Only servicing charges for the watches every few years.
Yes. I was driving that 3 wheeler as I was the only one who could drive that contraption 30 years ago. I would be wearing Seiko or Citizen quartz watches or my old auto Titoni.

At least you got cash and guts into the antique cars. Bravo as your collection is really rare here. Is it still road legal currently?

Unfortunately had to sell all my vintage cars in 1987 to fund the education of my two sons in boarding school and then University. Anyway , I still have 2 Morgans left , after having sold 2 in 1988. ( I was the one having owned  4 Morgans! ) This 3 wheeler is now in Brisbane and I met the current owners 1 year ago  when they came to K.L.
