A 1936 Standard Ten custom Drop Head Coupe by Salmons Bros (the same coach building company that does the Tickford 3-position drop head coupe conversions for MG, Jaguar, Bentley and Rolls-Royce), commission # 410394. This car was undergoing restoration when the machine shop that was rebuilding the engine lost one half of the main/thrust bearing shell, the flywheel and the clutch pressure plate. The body is all finished in cream with black fenders, and all four tires are new. Most of the chrome has been done. A replacement bearing shell has been obtained, but a flywheel and clutch pressure plate have not. The engine rebuild needs to be completed (pistons, valves, re-metaling of the rod and main bearings, and gaskets). The interior is there but the seats need to be re-upholstered, the door panels need to be re-covered, the floors need carpets and it needs a new convertible top. The top has three roof positions, fully closed, fully open, or with just the front seats and occupants exposed. Also, the windshield wiper motor, one of the bonnet hold-down springs, and one of the interior door handles is missing. The transmission tunnel was made of a prewar Bakelite-like material that fell apart upon removal. All those parts are readily available from the British Standard Owners club. A new chrome bonnet center strip has been ordered and should be installed by auction time.
