Notes

Sold as the MORGAN 45 for a period but similar to MORGAN 46/MORGAN 461, 462, 463, etc. from a design and molds originally created by Henry Scheel.
We list it here to to distinguish it from the entirely different first MORGAN 45 (1962) as well as a series of later MORGAN 45's designed by Nelson-Marek.
(See MORGAN 46 and MORGAN 462 for more details.)
