Provenance

The Standard Motor Company of Coventry, UK, built commercial automobiles from its inception in 1903 until 1965, with the exception of the war years from 1940-1944. During the war, the Standard Motor Company produced the Beaverette 1 (2 hp Light Utility) and the Jeep military vehicles.

 

The Model A10 was built from 1934-1936 and featured a 1,343 cc side-valve, 4-cylinder engine. The introduction of the Standard 9 and Standard 10 models in the 1930’s greatly improved the fortunes of the company. This was the last year for the Al0 model, although a new model - the Flying 10 - would replace it.

 

The Standard 9 chassis was mated with a body by Swallow (a company that built sidecars for motorcycles) to produce the SS, the predecessor to the Jaguar.

 

This car was purchased the 18th of October 1935 by a Royal Air Force pilot who was killed in WWll. It was stored in a barn until 1961 when it was sold. It was restored from 1969-1978 in Kent, England. It was imported to Portland, OR in 1978.

The car was purchased by Harold LeMay on Apri1 21, 1985.
