Designer: Walter Belgrove
The Triumph Gloria was an attempt by Triumph to move upmarket. The Glorias were available from 1933-37 in a variety of models. Triumph designed the closed bodies of the Gloria range, with Walter Belgrove and Frank Warner at the drawing board. Donald Healey engineered the Glorias and the subsequent Dolomites, whilst Walter Belgrove drew the Dolomite bodywork most famously the unique waterfall grille that he plagiarised from an Hudson. Walter Belgrove designed the dramatic 'Beetle-back' Standard Vanguard Phase I drawing inspiration from an American Plymouth known to be parked outside the London Embassy. Intended to be a smaller version of the Triumph Renown, The Triumph Mayflower was styled by Leslie Moore of Mulliners, and built by Fischer and Ludlow. Walter Belgrove was involved in the design of the front and the Mayflower started production in June 1950. A new monocoque shell was given to the Phase III Vanguard by Carl Otto in New York with a design by Tucker Madawick and modifications by Walter Belgrove. Chief engineer Ted Grinham bolted various Standard and Triumph bits together to form the Triumph TR2 which designer Walter Belgrove drew the bodyshell avoiding expensive to make curved panels.
