It may be hard to remember now that Morgan is moving ahead with the retro-futuristic EvaGT, but the British sportscar company got its start way back when with trikes. In fact that's what made them famous, but while its original wood-frame cars may still be available, three-wheelers haven't been part of the company's range since 1952. But all that could change in the near future.
According to reports from across the pond, Morgan is eager to take a stab at bringing the trikes that put it on the map back out from the annals of history. Last year, a Seattle-based company called Liberty Motors secured the license from Morgan to continue building those original trikes, under the name Ace and powering them with a Harley-Davidson V-twin engine.
Apparently impressed by the results, Morgan is reportedly in the process of reviving the trike themselves, even going so far as to redesign the original JAP engines used on the original and re-acquiring the license from Liberty. Sounds promising for aficionados of the original design, but for those who can't wait to get back to the future, Liberty Motors would undoubtedly be glad to help fill the void, starting at $48,000.
