Concours Vanguard Estate
This immaculate Vanguard has one first prize in the prestigious "Cartier travel with style" concours event held at Rambagh Palace in Jaipur India over the weekend of 23rd 24th February. This is apparently the biggest & most prestigious classic car event in India and the judging was carried out by several European judges, the head judge being Simon Kidson of Bonhams auction house. The car has been subject to an intensive restoration over the last year and has featured in the February issue of the Standard car review, the feature apparently was shown to the judges by the owner, Allan Almeida from Mumbai, the judges being impressed by the rarity of the car and were also surprised to see a Vanguard in such condition. Our Vanguard spares officer Pete Foster helped Allan in the restoration by supplying spares and a few items of memorabilia such as a handbook and sales brochure which were on display within the car. It all helps to raise the profile of the marque around the world!
