1958 Standard Ten Saloon No Reserve

[ translate ]

Lot details Registration No: 274 XUA Chassis No: BE102964DLB MOT: Exempt Current ownership since 2016 Subject to a self-evident previous restoration Entered from a private collection of classic cars and tractors Used regularly for tours and shows during the current ownership The Standard 8 was introduced in 1953 at £481. The cheapest four-door saloon on the market, yet it boasted independent front suspension, hydraulic brakes and an economical O.H.V engine. At the same time in another part of the same building Standard were producing a very different engine, the Rolls Royce Avon jet aero engine of which 415 were made between 1951 and 1955. In 1954 the Eight was supplemented by the slightly more powerful Standard Ten which featured a wider chrome grille and was dubbed as “Britain’s outstanding small car, based on the fact that the Standard Eight and Ten have OHV engine and four-speed gearbox in contrast to Ford’s predilection for side-valves and three speeds, and their possession of happier gear ratios, and more urge than the Austin A30 or Morris Minor’’ (Motorsport Magazine). The Ten was supplemented in 1957 by an up-market version called the Pennant, with the Ten and the Pennant finally replaced by the Triumph Herald in 1961. Chassis BE102964DLB was manufactured in 1958 and is understood to have been supplied new to London, being first registered on the 5th of December that year. Finished in Green paintwork with complimentary Dark Green and White interior trim. In current ownership since 2016, the Ten has since been resident of a private collection of classic cars and tractors. The Ten has self-evidently been subject to a previous restoration and ‘274 XUA’ still presents well today, the Standard reputedly spent many years in a museum in Scotland and afterward was in the possession of the previous owner from 2005. Regularly used in the vendor’s custodianship covering around 1,000 miles per year, the Ten has been enjoyed on Standard Car Club tours and for summer shows. Provided with a full stainless steel exhaust system in current ownership, ‘274 XUA’ started readily and ran well during our photography session. Supplied with a history file that contains a few previous MOTs, a handbook, and a current V5C document. For more information, please contact: Paul Cheetham paul.cheetham@handh.co.uk 07538 667452
