One of the last models produced by Standard, the Ensign was a more basic specification version of the Vanguard phase III, with a mesh grille and simplified trim and dashboard. It did, however, introduce a four speed gearbox to the Vanguard range. From 1962 a De Luxe version was offered, with a larger, 2.1 litre, engine and the option of an estate car.
The Ensign was popular amongst the forces and some were stationed at RAF Gaydon. The model remained in production until the Standard factory closed its doors in 1963.
This particular Ensign has been restored by a dedicated group of our volunteers from the ground up, entirely in house, over a period of six years.
