Restoration of a 1949 Standard Vanguard (05:21)
After owning a 1951 Standard Vanguard back in the mid-60s, my first car, I have always had a soft spot for the vehicle. Over the past few years, since 2009, I have been looking for a replacement Vanguard, something to restore. There have been plenty around but mostly junk requiring years of work and a big wallet. There were quite a few located in Western Australia, however they were geographically impossible. One was located down the Illawarra; however this one had been modified and fitted with mag wheels so was unacceptable. I finally found a single web page with images and a story of a 1949 Black Vanguard. Review website at URL: http://www.1949vanguard.com.au/
