Standard Vanguard 6.
More information on this Standard:
I stumbled across this rare Phase 3 Vanguard 6 while out for a classics hunt one winters day in 1993. It was at the bottom of someones garden near a river I think and suffering badly with decay. It had stood there for some time and problems with accessibility means it is probably still there. The red car alongside? thats an MGA...In the guys driveway was a rotting Austin Healey.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Standard above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Vanguard 6 would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Standard Vanguard 6, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the Vanguard 6, and similar old Standards, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
