Triumph Mayflower
Sir John Black fell in love with 'Razoredge' styling given to top end Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars during the 1930s, and even gave his wife an SS Jaguar 3.5-litre saloon in 1939 with a special razoredge body by Mulliners of Bordesley Green. Louis Antweiller, Managing Director of Mulliners, had convinced Black that Americans loved the upright Razoredge styling of the prewar luxury cars, and Black translated this into market potential for the new Mayflower which was intended to be a luxury small car. Leslie Moore of Mulliners did the styling, Walter Belgrove did a clay model, Vic Hammond did he grille and front bumper, and the design was built up by Fischer and Ludlow at Castle Bromwich, Birmingham. The Mayflower was launched in october 1949, and had unitary construction, independent front suspension and a revised 1247cc engine from the Prewar Standard Ten. The chassis and suspension of the Mayflower came to be re-used in the Triumph TR2. Production ended in 1953 after 35,000 had been sold, and in the year when Standard-Triumph decided to enter the economy end of the small car market with the new Standard Eight.
