The 1800 Roadster. was designed in the closing days of World War II. Triumph had been bought by the Standard Motor Company in 1944. 5] and the managing director of Standard. Sir John Black. wanted a sports car to take on Jaguar. Frank Callaby was selected to style the new car. After getting Black's approval for the general shape. Callaby worked with Arthur Ballard to design the details of the body.

Early post-war steel shortages meant that the body was built from aluminium. The frame was hand welded up from steel tube. The engine was a version of Standard's 1. 5-litre. four-cylinder side-valve design that had been converted to overhead valves by Harry Weslake and built by Standard. A four-speed gearbox[4] with synchromesh on the top three ratios was used.

The tubular steel chassis was a short-wheelbase version of the 1800 saloon. featuring transverse leaf sprung independent suspension at the front and a live axle with semi-elliptic springs at the rear. The rear track was considerably narrower than the front. Brakes were hydraulic.

The vendor states that this car is in very useable condition and that it runs and drives well. The last owner had it for 14 years. It was taken to Belgium for a short while and then France. but it is a UK car and comes with original green log book and a V5 Registration Document. It is believed to be only 4 family owners from new with the genuine mileage recorded. It was heavily restored in 2000 in Belgium (with detailed bills) and remained until recently in a museum. It comes with a file of various bills etc. It would benefit from a re spray but is solid and appears to be rust free. mechanically very sound. it has a re-trimmed interior and a new soft top. Magnificent looking piece of history and wonderful Sunday classic. it also has the Factory Option rear dickey seats.
