1927 18/42 Feature
Previously unknown 1927 model unearthed in Australia
First ever sighting of a 18/42 model
Gerald Atrill has emailed from Australia with these shots of a model that I didn't know existed.
It's a 6 cylinder model 6-
Gerald believes the difference in the 18/42 & 18/36 to be:
It was incomplete when he bought the car and since then he has have been buying anything that might fit. He has 4 different radiators, all out of Standards. He would like a photograph of what the car should look like -
As Standard were in the habit of exporting cars in chassis form at the time, for bodywork to be fitted by local builders, it is not beyond the realms of possibility that Gerald's car is one of those. Perhaps the 18/42 was also an export only model, which is why I can find no reference to it at home.
In any case, Gerald, you must have the only one. That quote usually ensures that someone will mail me about another -
If you , dear reader, have any more information, I would be glad to publish it and Gerald would be pleased to hear about it.
