Vanguard Phase III FEature


 German Vanguard III joins the Club







Thomas Detzner's immaculate Phase 3 Vanguard


An EMail to Werner Maurer, our European Representative, translated from the German:


Hallo Werner,


I sent my membership application last week by mail to Tony Pingriff. I own since August 2007 a Standard Vanguard Phase III Saloon, LHD, first registered in Denmark on 10.6.1956.


The history of this car is known, except from 10.7.1988 to 14.4.2003.


My car was bought on July, 7, 1988 by a German from the first owner. It is not clear how long the German owner kept the car, but I am in contact with him


On April 14, 2003 the car was sold from a German owner to someone in Holland.


On August 31, 2007 I bought this car from the same German, through a dealer.


The car is now registered in Germany and qualifies as a vintage car.


He asks me as “SMC European Representative” the following question:


It think, my car is the only one in Germany.
