Ron Harrison's Standard 8



Possibly the best Standard 8 in the World?



Ron Harrison's Standard 8


It's an extravagant claim, and not one that the owner makes for himself. 


He is much too modest, so I will do it for him.


Ron Harrison rebuilt this Standard 8, it must have been about 20 years ago. Such is the work that he continues to do on it that the car, in my view, is the most perfect example surviving. Arguably, it is far better than the day it left Canley.


This is a late model 8 with both an opening boot and fold down rear seats plus a heater too! Ron has recently added a new windscreen sealing rubber and a  stainless steel exhaust system, both supplied by the Club and described as excellent value by Ron.


Anyone wishing to know exactly what a Standard 8 should look like can use this as a reference. You just have to click on these photos to see what a quality restoration to original specification looks like Alternatively, you could come to see the car at the 49th International Rally next weekend



Yes its true, you could eat your dinner off this!
