Belgian papers, very good shape (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) The Triumph Mayflower is a small car which was produced by Britain's Triumph Motor Company from 1949 until 1953. It was the first small car to be built by Triumph under new owners, the Standard Motor Company. It used a version of the pre-war Standard 10 side-valve engine updated by having an aluminium cylinder head and single Solex carburettor. The engine developed 38 bhp (28 kW) at 4200 rpm. The 3-speed gearbox, with column shift, came from the Standard Vanguard and had synchromesh on all the forward ratios. There was independent suspension at the front using coil springs but a solid back axle and half-elliptic leaf springs, also based on the one used on the Vanguard, was at the rear. The front-suspension design was used on the Triumph 20TS prototype and, with modifications, on the Triumph TR2. Lockheed hydraulic brakes were fitted. A Mayflower tested by the British magazine The Motor in 1950 had a top speed of 62.9 mph (101.2 km/h) and could accelerate from 0–50 mph (80 km/h) in 26.6 seconds. A fuel consumption of 28.3 miles per imperial gallon (9.98 L/100 km; 23.6 mpg-US) wa
