STANDARD ENSIGN ESTATE - 2138cc TR4 ENGINE - VERY RARE !! SOLD (1962)
|The Standard Vanguard phase III arrived in 1955 with unitary body construction and for the first time, an estate car version was available. In 1957, the Ensign arrived, essentially an economy Vanguard with lower trim and initially, a 1670cc engine. In 1962, the Ensign was re-launched and fitted with the new 2138cc engine, designed for the TR4. Just 2300 of these run-out models were produced and only a few hundred were estates. With a top speed of over 90mph in overdrive form they were quicker than the range topping Vanguard Six model.|
This car is a 1962 Standard Vanguard estate, we believe one of just two left. It is fitted with the four speed gearbox with overdrive which was standard on this car but it also has servo assisted brakes with discs at the front which was an option. The condition is excellent. Other than a light body restoration and good quality re-paint 5 or so years ago it is also very original. There are one or two minor detail jobs to make it perfect but nothing requiring great expense. The original carpet set is frayed in places but we have one on order to arrive this month.
The mileage is 59,000, there is not enough history for us to warrant this but having spoken to two previous owners about the cars history, we are certain that this is correct. On the road this Standard drives well, the overdrive engages instantly and motorway speed cruising is no problem thanks to the lusty TR4 engine.
A rare and practical estate car that draws a crowd wherever it goes.
