Triumph Mayflower

The Triumph Mayflower was introduced in 1949. Its distinctive razor edge styling was borrowed from the larger Renown saloon that had been introduced the same year. It was powered by an updated pre war Standard Flying Ten engine. The Mayflower was marketed as an economy saloon and was aimed at the family motorist who wanted a well appointed reliable car with light controls, at an affordable price. It went on sale £473 (including purchase tax), with leather upholstery available for an additional £7. In 1950 a Drophead model joined the saloon, but it is not clear how many of these were made. Total production of the Mayflower was around 34,000 with production ending in July 1953.
