Rebuild of 1923 Morgan deluxe 3 wheeler
July 9, 2012
“I was given the wonderful opportunity of rebuilding the body of a 1923 Morgan de Luxe three wheeler motor car.
This was a daunting task as none of these vehicles were built the same. I had to work off the original blue prints and an existing body that was in itself a rebuild in plywood. Between old drawings and photographs, I made it”, said Johan Nel of Knysnawoodworkers.
“These vehicles were originally made in Ash, so I went back to using Ash as the previous rebuild of this car was in plywood and very crudely constructed.”
A fine piece of automotive history, once again to ride proud.
The finished Morgan de Luxe will be on display at the Knysna Woodworkers Festival.
