A major revision to the Standard Vanguard range occurred at the 1958 Motor Show in London, when the Phase 3 was visibly restyled in the, then-popular, "Italian" style. The redesign had been carried out by Michelotti (who styled the Triumph Herald) in conjunction with the Italian coachbuilder Vignale by which name the new model henceforth was called. Mechanically the Vignale Vanguard remained much as before, but externally featured a revised brighter range of 2 tone paint finishes,( separated by a thin chrome side strip), full-width chrome & polished aluminium radiator grille, revised rear lamps and stylish wheel trims. Another major revision was a revised roof pressing with larger front and rear window apertures giving a more modern appearance. Additionally, the Vignale was also offered with the 4-speed floor change as an option.

Good, mostly original condition, although it does have a few minor dings and scrapes the body work is sound and free from rust or DIY bodges. This is one of those cars that has obviously been well.....
