TJ Richards Flying 10 Tourer in Australia
T. J. Richards bodied Tourer on the Standard Flying 10 Chassis, 1937/8
Andy and Judi Maltby write from Queensland, (I think!)
This car was bought by a Mr. Freeman on the Gold Coast new... he traded it for a nice shiny Datsun. If he only knew what we all know now he would not have done that.....
He had the car for 40 years. We are the fourth owners of this car, she has done 78000 original miles. We also have racq card membership dated 1940 and a rego slip and its full history of the owners and all work done. Also, she came with a hand book 1937-
We did want to hot rod this car, if there are not a lot around it would not be fair to do this. Have been trying to find out how many are around, as you will see ours is different to the pictures you have sent
These were a special order vehicle in Australia. We contacted now Mitsubishi and they have no idea how many but doubt it would be many,
Thanks, Andy and Judi.

Thanks Andy and Judi,
I have enlarged your photos as much as I dare without ruining the quality
I am building up a collection of a number of T J Richards of Adelaide built Standards now, but I am sure I have nowhere near the complete picture. I have no idea how many cars they built and presently no brochures. If anyone out there has any more information, I would be grateful to add to the knowledge that we have.

I am aware that there are other cars and information that could be added to this site to make it more comprehensive, so if you have material and photographs, please let me know. Please send me, Phil Homer, a message at: Phil Homer
