Morgan Three Wheeler

It’s got three wheels, a tweaked Harley engine up front and it’s made of wood. It’s the Morgan Three Wheeler and it looks to be one helluva lot of fun. The original Three Wheeler first saw the light of day way back in 1911 when Harry Frederick Stanley Morgan was looking for a way to get around. It was an oddball vehicle no doubt, but because of its unconventional design it was thus classified as a motorcycle thereby skirting the British tax on automobiles. The original cars were made up until 1952 when Morgan finally introduced a traditional four wheel car, the 4–4. It’s now 59 years later and the British car maker has now seen fit to reintroduce the Three-Wheeler with a modern V-twin engine, Mazda transmission, and a few other bells and whistles that are sure to bring nostalgia back in fashion. Fifth Gear recently took the new Morgan out for a test ride and although it’s a bit loud, it sure does look like a blast to drive.
