The Mayflower is unveiled at the 1949 British Motor Show with styling by Leslie Moore (of Mulliners of Birmingham), an updated prewar Standard 10 engine and threespeed Vanguard transmission. It’s the first Triumph with unitary construction.
Ten drophead coupés are made, while 150 pick-ups are assembled in Australia from CKD kits.
Poor sales force Triumph to issue a press release confirming that the Standard Eight will replace the Mayflower the following year.
Mayflower production ends after a total of around 35,000 examples have been produced.
