STANDARD Vanguard Sportsman
This sporty variation on the Vanguard theme is the most distinctive car in the range. Never mind the standard two-tone paint – the main standout is that small-mouth grille that looks to have been an inspiration for the MG 1100. It’s there because this was supposed to have been a new Triumph, but the company changed its plans at the last minute. It does have a TR3 engine and bigger brakes. A real rarity now, the number of survivors in the UK is thought to be in single figures, hence the large price difference from other Vanguards.
