Launch of the Standard 8 in Australia, and Roadtest




The front cover of "Wheels".


Lang Kidby has sent me a copy of thid roadtest for the Standard 8 when launched in Australia in April 1954. The car also featured on the Front Cover as you can see. Note that Australians were using pounds, shillings and pence at that time.


The three pages of the test are all shown as thumbprints below. To read them simply click on them and an enlargement will be displayed.
