Footnotes

  • A landmark model in the history of the Coventry firm, the 1800 Saloon was one of the first post-war designs, the other being its sister car, the 1800 Roadster, to bear the Triumph name. Standard's wartime purchase of Triumph, whose pre-war cars had been much admired for their performance and quality, was seen as the first step towards establishing an up-market range to complement the more workaday Standards. Standard was already supplying Jaguar with a 1,776cc overhead-valve engine and four-speed gearbox for the latter’s 1½-Litre model and these, together with the existing Flying Standard rear axle, were chosen for the new car. The 1800 incorporated a separate chassis 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.
    This Triumph 1800 saloon was sold new in Portugal in 1947 and comes with Portuguese list of owners. The car was purchased by a Mr Nabil Chartouni in 2000 and imported into the UK that same year. We are advised that the engine is in running condition and that the gearbox works, although the overdrive has not been tested. Sold strictly as viewed, the car will require some re-commissioning in order to pass the MoT test but nevertheless represents a rare opportunity to acquire a coachbuilt Triumph saloon that would reward the application of a little ‘tlc’. Offered with Swansea V5. No reserve.
