History of the Morgan 4/4 Series I:
It was Morgan's first car with four wheels, the "4-4" (later "4/4") designation indicating that the model has four wheels and four cylinders. Earlier Morgans had been three-wheelers, typically with V-twin engines. 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 original open two-seater 4-4 was introduced in 1936 and ended up being the most popular of the three-body options available. 663 were built by 1939 and 249 more from 1946 to 1950, representing 53% of the overall production.
