Customised Vanguard Feature



Customised Vanguard Phase 1A Woody Estate Feature


I first published this page back in 2004. It has now come to m attention that this car is now for sale on e-bay. It would make an interesting addition to anyone's collection and of course would be welcomed at any Standard Event. For more details and photos see here






The Club didn't have a stand at the Enfield and District Show this year, due to clashes with other events. However, your webmaster was able to attend on one day, Saturday, and that's where I captured these shots of this customised Vanguard. Click on any below to see a larger version:


Started life as a saloon

The roof  comes from a London Taxi, and you can see that line in this shot.


4.5 litre Rover V8 fed by quadruple carbs.


Dashboard much simplified





Wood framing to windows and side doors





Disc brakes front and rear

Lots of room in the loading bay

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
