With the integration of Triumph and Standard after WWII, two new models were produced for 1946; the 1800 roadster and saloon, the latter introducing 'razor-edge' styling.
Eager to have a slice of the US market, it was reasoned a small, roomy, economical car might appeal. The result was the Mayflower, appropriately named after the ship that took the Pilgrim Fathers to America.
With a body by Mulliner, the Mayflower used the Standard Ten engine but the car was not well received. The styling got a mixed reaction and it was too early for the US small car boom of the late 1950s.
The Mayflower stayed in production until 1953 with more than half of the 34,000 built being exported.
