Triumph RenownTriumph Renown

This six light four door razor edge saloon was initially introduced in 1946 as the 1800 model, being powered by an overhead valve conversion of the pre-war Standard 1800cc engine. This unit was also used in the smallest engined Jaguar of the time, though a Solex carburettor was used in place of an SU.

Rover P4 1949-1964

Rover P4 1949-1964

The P4 was based on a design for Studebaker by Raymond Loewy, famous for his streamline shapes. It was announced in the Autumn of 1949. Although the body was completely new, much of the chassis was P3. The P4 75 had the traditional Rover 3-lamp configuration at the front, which earned the car the nickname of Cyclops. The engine was basically the P3 2103 cc six-cylinder in-line unit, but now fitted with an aluminium cylinder head.
The P4 model appeared in the course of the years as the 60, 75, 80, 90, 95, 100, 105, 105R, 105S, and 110.

TRIUMPH MAYFLOWER, 1247cc, 1949-1953 Little sister to the 1800 and Renown razor-edge saloons, this quality-built and individual car doesn't yet seem to have achieved the "cult car" status predicted for it by some. The side-valve engine stems from the Standard 10.
