Vanguard II Feature
Swedish Vanguard II to be restored
Micke Petterson's Phase II Vanguard
Hello and thank you for a exellent and informativ website !
I have found a car here in sweden that i purhaps is going to bay, but first i must check if there is possible to find spareparts as brake and engine parts for this car. In sweden there in nothing to be found. The engine is stuck but is possible to save it for repair.
I love this model of car and hope that it become mine in the future. The car i found is not so rustu and has keept in a barn får over 20 years and the price i think is ok. 250 eu. Aprox 250 pund i think.
I would be gratfull if you could answer this mail and if possible wit adress to a company that sales spareparts for the car. I send you a pic of the car.
sorry for the bad English
Your English is much better than my Swedish!
Its a Vanguard Phase 2 and appears to be in quite good condition. 250 Euros is under £200 which is not a lot of money. There are no spares suppliers for these cars but the club has a spares service and is probably able to help with most mechanical parts that you will need. We are also starting to maufacture body repair panels and can supply sills that it looks like your car may need. The club can also supply documents such as a workshop manual, essential if you are going to work on the car.
This page tells you how to get spares from the Club
Best of luck with your restoration, I would be pleased to see photos as it progresses.
I am aware that there are other cars and information that could be added to this site to make it more comprehensive, so if you have material and photographs, please let me know. Please send me, Phil Homer, a message at: Phil Homer
