Here we have this stunning triumph mayflower first registered 20.04.1953 chassis no. TT31139DL this car contains all of its original showrooms brochures lots of manuals and stacks of service records PLEASE SEE PHOTOES..

The car was registered to Norman frank, warren three counties hospital Bedfordshire, on the 20.04.1953 then its was registered to William jj Stevens laceby road, Grimsby on the 08.03.1973 to Thomas Simpson his address Newman road scamblesby Lincolnshire then on the 14.08.2017 it was registered to Michael bray goulceby house goulceby Lincolnshire.

The triumph contains its original interior which looks excellent, The paint work has a deep all over shine which really does compliment the interior, It still contains its original lettering around the switch controls.

The mayflower is certainly a good one this is one of the rear survives in this excellent condition which it has become such an extremely rear car with just a handful just remaining it was once classed as the poor mans rolls Royce.

The cars chrome work is excellent and really does compliment. This is a excellent example and very really coms on to the market it has a very smooth column gear change which drives absolutely spot on with a very tight feel. Still containing all its original service records as I have said the car has had lots of money spent throughout its life and has been maintained to an excellent standard through its very careful ownership. What a pleasure it would be for you to add to your collection and surely a talking piece with this history file one of the rear survivors.

1953 Triumph Mayflower par 752
registered 20th April 1953 to Norman frank warren three counties hospital Bedfordshire.

registered 21st july 1953 to William jj Stevens 114 laceby road Grimsby.

registered 29th july 1954 to Arthur Nicolas Danby 30 wellholm Avenue Grimsby.

registered 8th March 1973 to Thomas Simpson new main road scamblesby Lincolnshire.

registered 14th August 2017 to Michael bray Goulcby House Goulcby Lincolnshire.

Mr. Simpson brought the car from Mr. Danby in December 1972. The car was still in running order in good condition and still in daily use by Mr. Danby although he was then retired. It has been the family car since brought in 1953. It was also Mr Danby's last car since he was well into his eighties and giving up driving. It has been used around the Grimsby area primarily and with the usual holiday trips from time to time ….Torquay being a favourite destination. The test drive around Grimsby went fine, Despite it pelting down with rain and with the Grimsby traffic to contend with. I do not recollect my farther actually driving it before purchase and it was last time Mr Danby drove a car. I do recollect Mr Danby disappearing to consult his wife about the offer. On returning he said is there any chance of springing fiver old boy? My farther duly obliged and that was that.

On getting it back to scamblesby it was soon apparent that the hills of the Lincolnshire wolds were a different ball game powerwise to the flat streets of Grimsby. My farther then proceeded to sort the engine out which I believe also fitted a new clutch. It was then put into use. Generally used by my mother for local journeys this was case until it was last Mot d January 1974. I do know that the triumph along with various old wolseleys we had then, Was not used in the winter months. At that time I think you still could tax cars for four months. Being in the motor trade there were other cars available for use and so the triumph looking back had surprisingly little use,

Around 1985/6 a friend of mine offered to respray it for my father. The gray paint work was still in same flat condition as the day it was brought and polished which it clearly has done.

For many years one of Mr Danby s two sons would call by with his family on there visits home to Grimsby to look at the car... make sure that all was well.

I sold the car to Michael Bray August 2017 and he then asked me to help him recommission it.
