Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1949, the Renown was the ultimate development of the 1800, itself historically significant as the first Triumph-badged car made by the Standard Motor Company. The 1800 incorporated a separate chassis, 1,776cc overhead-valve engine and traditional alloy-over-ash coachwork in the then fashionable ‘razor edge’ style, subsequently being updated with components from the more-modern Standard Vanguard as it metamorphosed, firstly into the 2000 and finally into the Renown. The latter featured a Vanguard-type box-section chassis with coil-spring independent front suspension in addition to the new 2,088cc engine that had already been seen in the 2000. Production ceased in 1952.
    This Renown was acquired in 1995 from a Mrs M Ashton, whose father, a Mr Case, had purchased it in 1958 from Moorland Cars of Middlesex (copy receipt available). Also on file is correspondence from Mrs Ashton and details of the car’s two previous owners. Described as ‘running but requiring complete overhaul’, the vehicle is offered with Swansea V5.
