Standard Vanguard Phase II

Standard launched a revised Vanguard "Phase II" in 1952 to replace its original design. The new model had revised styling which looked more congenital thanks to a "notchback" boot lid and cut-away rear wheel spats. Apart from having a revised gearchange and hydraulic clutch little else had changed on the Phase II and so the model continued to sell well at home and overseas.

Vanguard Phase II body-styles included two door and four door estate options in addition to the regular Four door saloon style. In saloon format the model gained extra interior space and a larger luggage area, making the car an even more practical choice for post-war motorists.
