Synopsis: Order a new Morgan and you will have to wait a year for it to be delivered—but flipping through Morgan: 100 Years is sure to make the wait more bearable. Relating the Morgan story year-by-year, the first half of this book highlights landmark events and sporting successes from 1909 to the present. The history draws on information and illustrations from the archive at the Morgan factory where each Morgan car is still lovingly hand-built by Morgan craftsmen. The remainder of the book includes chapters on the development of Aero 8, Morgan's first totally new car since 1936; Morgan's heroic Le Mans campaigns; extraordinary stories about Morgan owners and their cars; Morgan's manufacturing today—modern technology alongside tradition craftsmanship; what the future holds; and more. This is a very special book about a very special car company. No other manufacturer can claim to have a greater percentage of its lifetime production still in roadworthy condition—Morgan enthusiasts make sure their cars live forever.
About the Author: Charles Morgan is the managing director of the Morgan Motor Company, a Morgan racing driver, and the grandson of the company founder. Gregory Houston Bowden is the author of More Morgan and Morgan: First and Last of the Real Sports Cars.
