1955 Standard Vanguard Phase 2 74000 miles SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
Standard Vanguard for sale , this has the conventional 2088cc, four cylinder, petrol engine which will give around 25mpg and when delivered was good for 80 mph! .

First registered in July 1955 this car is obviously both tax and MOT exempt, she starts 'on the button' and drives extremely well through the 3 speed column change gearbox. she now has a recorded 74000 miles which is believed to be correct.

It was originally owned by a shopkeeper in Tredegar who kept it for 15 years before having 2 other local owners until in 1974 it went to the next owner who kept the car for 20 years before moving it to another family member, it stayed in the family until 2015 being used sparingly between bouts of being 'laid up' in the garage although she was regularly started and moved around during this time. Since recommissioning the car has been used regularly even having cover with green flag until this year being used 2/3 times a week for local journeys. The car is sound but is of course over 60 years old so as always with cars of this vintage could be cosmetically improved, however she is an honest car which is eminently usable as is or could be improved upon as required.

There is much documentation with the car which shows things such as a conversion to a manual 4 speed floor change gearbox in 1983, which was not deemed appropriate so it was changed back to column change almost immediately.

Any trial is most welcome for details please call me on 07720-349591 Open to offers

The car is located near HEREFORD - this is nowhere near London, Glasgow or the M25 so please be aware of its location, deliver may be possible.
