Former race car, 2 family owned, recently new upholstery and servicing.

Chassis number B667 Shipped to Lew Spencer, Los Angeles CA on March 30, 1962. The racing engine (not installed) is a Ford pre-crossflow 120E 6015 block casting T2 (up to 1650cc potential) that has racing headers and dual carbs.  There is small a brazed-on plate on the engine block that reads “3 L1 C”.  The current installed “daily driver” engine block is a 771M 6015 CA (1600cc) with a conventional exhaust manifold and a single carb.   The car comes with the original racing headers, carbs and miscellaneous pieces. This Morgan is stated to only have one previous owner and has been with the current since the mid 1960’s. It has been confirmed with the Morgan factory that this car was shipped from Morgan to Lew Spencer in the LA area in 1962.  Lew Spencer was a well-known racer of Morgan’s, especially his Baby Doll series of Morgan +4 Super Sports.  It is unknown if this Morgan was part of his stable of cars, or if Lew sold the car (he was also a dealer). The car was originally shipped painted red.  There is evidence of her being painted light blue (Lew Spencer’s “livery”) before the owners post-racing restoration of silver with black wings. Previously owned by Formula 1 driver Peter Revson.  Powered by a Ford Cosworth Lotus/Cortina engine.
