Standard Vanguard Luxury Six

Standard replaced its Vanguard Vignale with a final production model known as the Vanguard Luxury Six. The new Luxury Six featured an all new six cylinder engine which would see service for many years as a powerplant for the new Triumph range of saloons and sports models. The new 1991cc unit developed 80bhp in this original form, a marked improvement on the old four cylinder engine.

Despite the Vanguards dated appearance the Luxury Six sold in healthy (nearly 10,000 cars) numbers during its short production run. The model was replaced with the Triumph 2000 in 1963.
