1953 Mayflower


With classic British styling and modern American reliability, this Triumph is Norman’s answer to city driving. Unlike most of Norman’s designs the body on this one was left mainly stock, except for its miles-deep laser straight black finish. Underneath and inside are far from stock though. Under the hood rests a 4.3 liter Chevy Vortec V6 and 200-4R overdrive transmission. The rear end is a 10 bolt Chevy unit, narrowed to fit. Front suspension is a narrowed Mustang II unit. Disc brakes, rack and pinion, electric power steering and sway bars round out the chassis. Inside the cockpit is a complete custom interior. Features include Vintage Air climate control, tilt steering column, power windows, stereo and seat belts. Unlike some of Norman’s other interiors, this has a complete oriental rug carpet set, not just floor mats. Coker Radial wide whitewalls, yellow pistriping, Lucas lights and a sterling silver hood ornament round out the package making this the perfect center city Philadelphia commuter.
