English: Standard Vanguard 'Phase 1', 1947.
The Standard Vanguard Phase 1 was the first completely new British car design to emerge after World War II. A six-seater sedan with styling rather like a giant beetle, the Vanguard incorporated many modern features and became so popular in export markets like Australia that it was virtually unobtainable in its native England. With lighter controls and less complicated to drive than pre-war cars, the Vanguard could be promoted to women drivers, many of whom had learned to drive during the war years. The Vanguard was released in Australia in 1948, and according to advertisements in the Brisbane Telegraph in 1950, 'A smart, streamlined Vanguard...combines best features of both English and American cars' for 745 pounds. By this time it was being assembled in Australia. The vehicle in this publicity photograph (in the UK) appears to have a car radio, a very rare accessory at the time.The Standard Vanguard was powered by a new 2088cc four cylinder OHV engine developing 68 bhp. This engine was designed for hard usage, incorporating wet liners which greatly simplified engine overhauls. In addition to powering the Vanguard, it was also used on the famous Ferguson tractor as well as the very traditional Triumph Renown saloon and Morgan sports car. Drive was through a three speed all-sychromesh gearbox with column change and full hydraulic brakes were fitted.
