A look back at the last 5 decades as our Morgan dealership celebrates our 50th anniversary...
Due to the unfortunate atrocities now being linked (unfairly!) to the name Isis, we are slowly changing our business name to Morgan Cars USA. We regret the loss of our long held business name (48 years!) however have suffered from the negative name ties.
Named for the river on which Bill rowed while at Oxford, Isis Imports is the longest standing Morgan dealership in the United States. Bill Fink began bringing Morgans to the USA from the UK while still a student at Oxford University. After making a few bucks profit he began to pursue his love for the Morgan car in earnest. Eventually, when he discovered a way to enable Morgans to be imported to the USA (considered an impossible task at this time) by converting them to run on propane, he became the sole USA Morgan dealer - his contract consisted of a handshake with Peter Morgan. He enjoyed great satisfaction providing customers nationwide with their hand built Morgans, and the wait list for a build slot was worth the wait for the true Morgan devotees. Eventually another dealership was added on the East Coast, and despite their closing after a long run, in the mid 2000s seven new dealers were appointed in the States. Today the USA boasts several Morgan dealerships. All of this is possible because of the efforts of Bill Fink.
