Healy, reminiscent of an Italian Alfa Romeo.
Financial difficulties in the prewar period forced the company in 1944 to go to Association with the company Standard to form a group of Standard-Triumph.
The first post-war car group has become the Triumph 1800, manufactured in the versions of “sedan” and “coupe”. The car was produced from 1946 to 1948. By construction, the Triumph 1800 was a transitional model, which incorporates the design refinements of the 1930-ies, design, and technological developments of the postwar period. So, the car has maintained huge front fenders, but almost got rid of the rear, kept the famous “Teschin place” in the Luggage compartment, but lost the traditional pre-war boards and the “spare tire” in the recesses of the front fenders. The maximum speed of the machine, equipped with a motor with a displacement of 1776 cm3 were about 80 mph (128 km/h).
