Morgan was the oldest car manufacturer owned by a single-family in its entire history. And the word manufacturer suits best for it since all of their cars were built by hand.
Morgan started its business in 1910, and the first car was a tricycle with a single seat. It launched the first four-wheeled car in 1936. In 1937 it introduced an extended version, with four seats. Over time, the car manufacturer offered 4-seat versions for its vehicles, but the main products were suitable only for two occupants.
The 2006 model still had the same lines as the old models, but they never seemed outdated. Despite the extended, curved wheel arches and the narrow and tall engine compartment, they never looked old. A curved and tilted radiator grille with vertical slats was typical for most of the Morgan vehicles. Compared to the pre-War models, the big difference was the headlights, which were incorporated into the front fenders and not attached to a bar. The car's back was extended to accommodate another set of seats, and the trunk lid was almost vertical.
Due to the extended cockpit, the carmaker installed a pair of seats in the back. For the 2006 model, these were placed lower. The exposed wooden part that ran from the front to the back of the cabin was a statement of preserving the original design, with wooden components for the chassis.
Under the hood, Morgan was up to date with new engines and technologies. It featured a 3.7-liter V6 engine. It was paired to a 6-speed manual only.
