Flying Standards Resting in India



News on 2 Flying Standards in India.


Hi Phil

 

Here's a Flying 8 saloon spotted by my friend Edward in Bombay. He says its languishing in some garage, and belongs to some corporation. The car bears a re-registration in Goa (GDE) dating to the 70s. I wonder if it is the same car my aunt used to drive ;-)

 

Also, I was just sent this picture of a yellow Standard in Cochin in South India. It is part of a large collection, but is the only Standard. Do identify the exact model for me.

Thanks, Karl,






Hi Karl

The two door Eight under the pile of rags could be pre or postwar, can't see the bonnet sides to confirm.

 

The four door yellow car is a 1938/39 Flying 10 because the 8 and 9 were both two door cars. Note blade bumpers and bonnet side louvres, indicating a prewar car.

 

Here is a nice identical Flying 10 from the website

Thanks for finding these cars
