The F type

1933 was a vintage year for Morgan, bringing in its train a large number of World Records. 1933 also saw the advent of a new model known as the F-type fitted with a Ford engine. The prototype was photographed at the back of the factory. The first production F-type was a four-seat family tourer called the F4, this was followed soon after by the F2, a two-seater version. Rather than the tubular steel chassis, the F-types used a Z-section steel ladder-frame chassis. Featuring a conventional bonnet and radiator, this was one of the most popular three-wheelers ever produced and encouraged a number of other firms to copy the idea.
