Bicycles and tricycles, displays of toy and model cars, surrounded with Auto-mobilia. The collection was first opened in 1972 and has grown considerably since then. Most of the vehicles on display are in working order and several are used on the road each year, taking part in 'vintage' rallies, road runs, reliability trails and normal pleasure motoring. Morgan 3 Wheelers are the main feature of the collection and a particular interest of Mr Booth. The first car was constructed by Malvern Link Garage owner H.F.S Morgan in 1909. The Design is remarkably simple with nothing surplus to requirements . The backbone of the chassis encloses the prop-shaft, the lower frame tubes on some models are used as exhaustpipes, the steering pins form part of the framed Morgan sliding pillar independent front suspension. Various engines have been fitted J.A.P .- M.A.G - Anzani - Blackburne - Matchless - Ford and Precision can be seen in the collection. The Morgan Motor Company is still in existence making a range of 4 wheeled sports -cars, still built by hand in the traditional way. *Image is not necessarily one of the museum.
