Where is this Standard?
Where is this Standard Swallow, UH 8806?
I am trying to locate above car a Standard swallow nine, colour green..first registerd in 1930's to William Slade of 246 Cowbridge rd Cardiff..In 1950's owned & used as a family car by my father in law (late) Ted Bloomfield until 1959 when he moved from Cardiff to Burghfield in Berkshire when he sold it to a workmate who informed him in 1960 that he had sold it to a motor museum..Last re registered in SURREY in 1960 according to records. Both Ted & his buyer knew the car was collectable (only 6 made ? ) WHERE IS IT ? I have made enquiry at various motor museums with negative result. I understand there is a similar car at the Coventry transport museum LJ 2793 but that one is not the same car. Please feel free to publish this letter & photos on your club website & any info about this car would be welcome..
