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“These vehicles were originally made in Ash, so I went back to using Ash as the previous rebuild of this car was in plywood and very crudely constructed.”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.
