Thai Postwar 8 Drophead Coupe Feature
Postwar 4/8A Drophead Coupe in Thailand
I'm writing on behalf of some Thai friends, who have Standards. (I'm English by the way )
I live in Bangkok, and have just restored a classic Rover P4 1960, and am a member of the Thai Vintage Car Club
I have just returned from the TVCC Parade at Hua Hin, Thailand, in association with the Sofitel Hotel there, celebrating their 80th birthday.
I have enclosed a photo of my friend's car, which baffles me.
can you identify it please ?
Spares are the one thing of course that they don't have, but that doesn't stop them from enjoying their cars.
In Thailand we have the ability to make most of our spares, or if needs must, stick in a Nissan, with auto gearbox
hope you enjoy the pictures, let me know about the car !
Your friends car is a postwar (1946-
Please refer your friend to the Clubs site at www.standardmotorclub.org.uk where he will find similar cars, such as http://www.standardmotorclub.org.uk/cars/flying/features/swiss8dhc.htm
Thanks for your interest, please send more photos and something about the car and I will publish it.
I am glad there appears to be a thriving Classic Car scene in Thailand.
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: Webmaster
