Five Australian Vanguards
My name is Ian Arnold, and I live in Central Victoria, Australia. I have owned and driven many Vanguards over the past 40 years.
My congratulations re your website - it is wonderful. I have sent a membership enquiry to the registrar, and hope to hear back soon.
I own 5 Vanguards, as follows:
1948 Saloon - long door, no bonnet emblem, no sidelights. Registered
1952 Saloon - PH 1A, overdrive, Fully restored.Registered
1953 Pickup - Australian body - Original condition. Registered
1956 Saloon - Fully restored. Registered
1964 Vanguard 6 Estate Car - 4 speed - Mechanically restored , needs new paint. Registered
They are great to drive, and still turn heads wherever we go - it is amazing how many uncles/fathers/grandfathers used to own one, as we are told often at rallies and shows all over!
I shall attempt to attach some photos which you are quite welcome to use on your excellent site.
Regards, Ian and Faye Arnold
