Maximum style and impact was what Standard-Triumph
was after with the Roadster. It was to be a statement
and it performed the task perfectly.

The three speed column shifter is easy to engage
and the long front bench seat is surprisingly comfortable.

Design work

Standard's wartime purchase of Triumph, whose pre-war cars had been much admired for their performance and quality, was seen as the first step towards establishing an up-market range to complement the more working day Standards. Design work begun in 1944 envisaged a car built in two body styles - saloon and sports roadster - using a common engine and gearbox, and similar running gear.

Dickey seat

The chassis, an all-new design featuring independent front suspension - comprised two large-diameter steel tubes joined by cross-braces. Styled by Standard's Frank Callaby, the Roadster's elegant body was unusual in retaining the dickey seat, which had been a feature of the pre-war Triumph.


This right hand drive example of Triumph's first post-war sports car is one of about 2,000 examples produced between 1948 and 1949, featuring the larger 2-litre engine. An older nicely restored car, it is finished in green with a dark green soft top and a red leather interior. The long front bench seat is surprisingly comfortable.

Some specifications

Large headlights, Lucas fog lights, dual chrome horns, and a chrome grille as well as a marker lamp and rear view mirror mounted on top each front fender. The interior, which features a luxurious quantity of wood, is in good (mostly original) condition.
