This website is
funded by the Standard Motor Club as a service to
it's members. The club, founded in 1974,
exists to promote the Standard marque
and to help members, worldwide, keep their cars on
the road, or restore them if needs be. We are the
only club to cater for the whole Standard Model
range, from 1903 to 1963. The Club charges an
annual subscription. We are a mutual aid,
not-for-profit organisation, run by a
democratically elected committee. Unfortunately we
can not help anyone who isn't prepared to join. If
we gave non-members everything they needed
for free, there would be no financial basis for
the club, so it would cease to exist and so would
this website and all our services. We would all be
the poorer for that.
There is lots of
information here to help you identify your car and
lots of features on members cars or restorations.
We tell you about events that the cars and
their owners are participating in. We delay
the publication of adverts for cars and spares for
sale here until members have had their pick of
them through our regular printed magazine. If, as
a non-member you want information, we will gladly
give an answer or piece of advice, if we know it.
If you require more of us, you will be asked to
join the club. We also have the largest stocks of
Standard Spares anywhere in the world, and are
remanufacturing hard to source spares. The spare
parts service and full restoration or repair
advice are NOT available to non-members,
so please join the club and get yourself a
membership number before asking. (We are
sorry, but Spares can not be supplied to North
America due to product liability issues.)
After you have
enrolled as a member, you can ask for as
much advice as you like, and we will collectively
endeavour to assist you in any and every way that
we can, (but please note that other members might
expect your help in return) The full range of the
club's services and spares will also be available
to you. Note that our membership fee is low
compared to other clubs and every penny of it is
spent running the club.
We are sure that
you understand. Join
us and join in the fun of Standard Motoring.
