It’s the end of an era as Morgan Motor Company says goodbye to their steel chassis. After 84 years, the last Morgan with such a chassis has rolled off the production line at their Pickersleigh Road factory in Malvern, UK. This chassis first came into the world back in 1934 and has been in produtione ver since, making it the longest running production car architecture. For the final car built on the steel chassis, that was a Plus 4 70th Edition that was purchased by a longtime Morgan collector who actually has other historically significant Morgans. Replacing the steel chassis will be Morgan’s new CX-Generation bonded aluminum platform that was introduced back in March 2019. This chassis can be found in all four-wheeled Morgan models.
Steve Morris, CEO and Chairman of Morgan Motor Company, said: “The steel chassis has been fundamental to Morgan’s production for more than eight decades, found beneath the skin of some of the most important and successful models in the company’s history. Its unique driving charm is loved by many and, in fact, demand for steel chassis cars is still strong. However, with the introduction of our CX-Generation platform, which underpins our revolutionary new range of four-wheeled products, the time has come to bid farewell to the steel chassis. We are delighted to present this final steel chassis car to a long-standing friend of the factory, who we know will enjoy it alongside his extensive Morgan collection.”
