When my granny heard about my website and the Standard Vanguard 1 post on it she told me about some of the cars she had owned when she was young.
She said that she had had a Standard, although it wasn’t a Vanguard, a Singer Gazelle and a Morris Oxford.
We recently went to Ballymoney Old Vehicle Club‘s Annual Show and Family Fun Day and I saw this Singer Gazelle on display.
The Singer Gazelle was made from 1956-67 and was the first Singer to be produced after the company was taken over by the Rootes Group.
Her Singer Gazelle had a 1497cc Straight-4 overhead cam engine and four gear manual transmission. (She didn’t tell me this- I looked it up on the internet!).
The Gazelle was definitely an extremely nice car and if I could’ve, I’d probably have tried to buy it!
