Standard handed the styling of its new Vanguard to a budding, young Italian designer, Giovanni Michelotti. Michelotti would later gain fame for designing more popular Standard-Triumph such as the Herald, Spitfire and the eventual Vanguard replacement, the Triumph 2000.
All of the major changes to the "new" Vanguard were cosmetic. New features included a larger glass area, a new grille, revised rear springs and taller gearing. Production of the Vanguard Vignale continued until 1961.
