The “Aero”

Another special Morgan, inspired by Capt. Albert Ball’s specially bodied Grand Prix car, was introduced in 1920. This was called the Aero in recognition of the famous aviator.


So advanced had H.F.S. Morgan’s first designs been, that little alteration, apart from bodywork modifications, were needed for several years.  The car retained its sturdy, lightweight construction and the two-speed transmission system remained in production until the early 1930s. Electric lights replaced acetylene lamps and starters were added. As a result of experience gained in reliability trials, front wheel brakes were installed, the Morgan car being one of the first in the field to enjoy this innovation. More powerful overhead valve V-twin engines were fitted, giving the Morgan an exceptional performance for its time.
