Standard 12 Saloon (Deluxe) – Fully Restored



The Standard Motor Company was founded in1903 by R. W. Maudslay, a civil engineer by profession, who quickly realised the enormous potential of the horseless carriage. The company gained an enviable reputation for producing well-appointed/well engineered cars and sales remained strong until the outbreak of WW2.



At Milestone Classics we like to keep at least one pre-war car in stock for our discerning customers and simply could not resist the charm and condition of this remarkable Standard 12 Deluxe originally manufactured in 1935.



The previous owner liberated the car after an extended period in storage. She went through an expensive/extensive photographic restoration around 20 years ago and is still in remarkable condition today. All corrosion was removed, suspect timber replaced, and the car was professional respray in a stunning blue/white combination with extensive re-chroming



Recent work (circa £5,000) has included:

·  2010 - Headlining

·  2011 - Complete engine overhaul including pressure test, engine mounts & gasket set

·  2013 - Brake overhaul

·  2014 - Rear spring boosters and steering overhaul



The owner wisely retained the original leather seats & dashboard - sitting into the car is like stepping back in time. The ‘12’ has a remarkably generous interior that accommodates four people easily - the rear passengers even enjoy the benefit of fold down picnic tables!



On the road the car drives well with excellent mechanics (the crash gearbox is utterly rewarding once you understand how to co-ordinate wheel speed with engine revolutions) and she copes easily with modern road conditions.



The history file contains MOT’s from 2000, original Instruction Book and a photograph album with pictures of the restoration.



This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of motoring history. Perfect for classic car shows and rallies we recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this remarkable classic.
