Two brands with an established pedigree were brought together in 1945 to form Standard-Triumph International by Sir John Black, then chairman of the Standard Motor Company. The inspired use of the Triumph brand, initially on a conventionally designed saloon, and then on a world beating range of sports cars that immediately gained success in competition, created a strong desire for the brand among enthusiastic motorists who appreciated its style and engineering. Changing use of language led to the Standard brand being discontinued with all models subsequently sold as Triumphs. Triumph & Standard Cars 1945 to 1984 looks at every model produced by the company from 1945 until the end of production in 1984 with the Triumph Acclaim, a car sometimes derided by purists, but the car that paved the way for co-operation between the remains of the former British Leyland behemoth and Honda of Japan. Each model is fully illustrated and described with comprehensive technical detail.

Author Bio: Kevin Warrington was born into a family with deeply established roots in all areas of the motor industry, but chose a different branch of industry for his career. After formal training as an electronics design engineer, Kevin worked in various branches of the computer industry, eventually running a global sales and marketing group for a US-based software developer. Early retirement gave him the ability to fulfill a lifelong dream of writing about and photographing classic machinery.
