  • Morgan replica problems

    New to the forum. Building a 1958 Morgan plus 4 replica. Have my motor, trans, rear end, interior, and misc accessories.... Only thing i cant figure out is the correct body dimensions. Cant find any body parts for sale online that i can get a start from. Wanted to build a body buck so i could modify it as nessicary. Anyone know where to start?? Want to make it as accurate as possible.

      My father has a '60 +4 4 seater and I may be able to get dimensions for you. Have you started with blueprints that may be found online?

            I can take a computer model of the car, and machine a plug of it out of styrofoam for mold making. here are some examples of plugs ive done. and yes there is a computer model available of the car your are looking to do.

                    Looking for frame dimensions. Found the morgan parts catalogue. So original body can be bought... But the frame from them is a bit out of my price range. Have great pictures of the frame and a good place to start but no idea on the exact dimensions.

                      When you say frame do you mean the wooden frame for the body or the metal chassis?

                        I am confused too but I thought a Morgan chassis frame was laminated wood, unique to the automotive industry. I am not sure that if dimensions were available it could be replicated by a conventional steel chassis construction.

                          It is metal with wood. Metal for strength, wood for structure. Just looking for dimensions
