Standard Vanguard II 1954

Vendor purchased the car in 2004 in bits, with the engine inside on the seats! It was a very solid car and had been stored for 20 years. Engine was totally rebuilt at 3,280 miles. New pistons, valves, bearings, crank reground. Rebuilt with head pressure tested valves, springs etc. Receipts for £1,500. Brakes rebuilt, lack of use has made them a little firm. Mechanically the vendor says the car is in good order, with gearbox, clutch and steering in good condition. A nice original car which could be improved with a little work.

Condition: 2/3

Sold for £2,120 at our July 2013 Classic Car Auction
