Standard SLO4 Feature Article
A 1923 Standard SL04 has recently been unearthed from a garage in Guisbourgh, Cleveland, where it has lain undisturbed for well over 20 years. Owner, Alan Halfpenny is now in the process of recommissioning the car for more regular use. The photos show it to be in fine original condition. Having assisted Alan in identifying what the car is, the Club is now helping him to, hopefully, retain the original registration number, as the car has unfortunately never been registered on the Swansea computer. Alan says that the car is from Batch 14, number 1303, The Commission Number is 43700 and Engine Number is 43809.

It is good that such a rare car should appear immediatly on the eve of our 100th birthday year. We hope that the car and Alan will be able to attend one of next years celebratory events. We look forward to seeing them. More details of ST100 are available on the site
