eBay watch: 1950s Standard Vanguard pick-up truck


I'm quite fond of the US pick-up trucks of the mid-20th century, which seem to be growing in popularity right now, especially the heavily-renovated models. You can be forgiven for thinking that this 1950s Standard Vanguard pick-up truck is one of them - but this is actually a UK build.

This Standard Vanguard Phase 2 from 1953 has the look and it also has the added exclusivity of being a rare UK model, as well as being a model that was featured in Classic Van and Pick Up Magazine in 2012. So well worth a look. It's also described as being one of only a handful on the road in the world.

It was restored 10 years ago, and is said to be excellent condition, with a TR3 four speed floor change gear box with overdrive fitted, as well as a tow bar. Some blemishes in the paintwork (pictured in the listing), but nothing that looks too nasty.

£3,100 is the current price on eBay.
