Phase 2  Vanguard  Feature


Vanguard II provides regular enjoyment for enthusiastic owner






Brian Birch has been an active campaigner and enthusiastic user of products of the Standard Motor Company for many years now. We have featured his Atlas Kennex Minibus Conversion before, but now here is  his main mode of Standard transport. His Vanguard II is an older restoration but still in remarkably good order




The Series II is distinguished from the Series I mainly by the adoption of a 3- box design, to include a  conventional boot


The addition of a towbar makes this a useful load hauler


The drivers view......


 



....and that of the passenger


 



This name badge is on both bonnet sides


And this one on the rear above the numberplate light


Rugged 2088cc wet-liner 4 cylinder





Brian's car captured at this year's West Midlands Rally
