STANDARD VANGUARD SPORTSMAN

Saloon.

Meant to be a Triumph Renown replacement, hence the globe badge. MG-Farina style grille, 90bhp twin-carb engine, crossflow cooling, front anti-roll bar and 10ins brake drums. Dual overdrive standard, likewise jazzy two-toning inside and out, and two-speed wipers. Does 90mph and has considerable curiosity value, but a bit perilous in the wet.
