The post-war Triumph Mayflower registered NVR 227 and decorated in a metallic dark green with lots of silver trim. Interior seating is moulded in a contrasting beige.
Produced by the Standard Motor Company and sold by its subsidiary Triumph between 1949 and 1953, 35,000 were made across the 2-door saloon and a 2-door drophead coupé, as well as a utility version made in Australia.
With a 3-speed manual gearbox and column gear shift, the Mayflower had a top speed of 62.0 mph and could accelerate from 0-50 mph in 26.6 seconds.
Petrol consumption was around 28 miles per gallon. The upright saloon, characterised by its 'razor edge' styling - replicated perfectly on our Oxford model - provided comfortable seating for four people and cost £545 on the road.
