With history dating back to 1903 the Standard motor company was a major concern in the pre war market with a market share similar in size to that of Austin. After production restarted after world war 1 (Standard had built over 1,000 aircraft during the war) the eleven was the first car built on Standard’s new wooden track production line. This allowed them to make over 10,000 cars in 1924.
This particular car has been owned by the current owners for over 40 years with only 2 previous keepers.
In 1982 the current owner set the record for the “round Britain” challenge covering 2,046 miles in 72 hours around the coastline of the United Kingdom. The whole journey completed in winter with the roof down to “reduce drag” – A record that has yet to be beaten.
Fitted with the V3 overhead exposed valve and push rod engine, finished in off white with black arches and convertible top as well as green interior.
Having sat in the owners museum for the last 3 decades the car is dry and appears in good cosmetic condition but will require some light recommissioning work.
