Over the winter Graham’s been building a new engine for Dave Griffith’s Standard Vanguard. At nearly 2.5 litres, with steel crank, steel rods, a 320 degree cam, a brand new gas flowed and ported cylinder head, a ported intake manifold and fully modified twin 2″ SU carbs. This should be a significant improvement over the old engine. Can’t wait to see what it does when we get it on the rollers.

I have been interested in the development of this Vanguard. I have a 1961 Vanguard 6 that I have been running on the track for a couple of years. The car is still in a progressive build stage – the main focus on handling and braking. Any sharing of spring height or rates would be appreciated. As far as I’m aware no one else here in Australia races a Vanguard.
1000lb springs on the front. Happy to help.
