1961 Morgan+4 For Sale! Excellent Condition, 52216 Miles!
Piloted by Chris Lawrence (of Lawrence Tune) and Richard Shepherd-Baron, the number 29 car covered over 2,255 miles with an average running speed of 93.97 miles per hour. Chris Lawrence was already a well-respected racing driver and was well known for his ownership of a 1956 Morgan +4, chassis code 3464, then registered TOK 258.
It was entirely rebuilt by Techniques, a Morgan specialist in the United Kingdom, in the 1990s and refinished in the correct Le-Mans winning livery. It is equipped with all of the latest modifications to make it both eligible and competitive in historic racing. It maintains the all-important 4840 numbered chassis that carried the car to victory at Le Mans as recorded by the Automobile Club de L’Ouest and Le Mans scrutineers in 1962.
Instead, Lawrence had Peter Morgan build a new chassis: 4840. The new car, a Morgan +4, was constructed with more aerodynamic, aluminum, “Low Line” 4/4 bodywork.
