Vanguard I Restoration


It's Vanguard Month!


October is Vanguard Month at www.standardmotorclub.org

Vanguard Fan to restore this Ambulance



The Ambulance before it's restoration


Tom Dolby, owner of a Phase 1 Vanguard Estate is shortly to embark on another Vanguard project. This time its the Vanguard Ambulance photographed above and below. The above pictures shows what it looks like today ( after cleaning!) and the photograph below is what it looked like prior to 1987.  As you can see the Ambulance is pretty far gone, so hopefully Tom will be able to restore it to its former glory.


Tom admits that he is very busy, so the restoration will be slow, but he has promised to take photographs as the rebuilt progresses and I will feature them here as I receive them. He would also like to know what the inside should look like. If you can help, please see here.


Good luck and thanks for letting me feature it. We look forward to your reports.
