Standard 10 in the Philippines



The first Standard in the Philippines



Standard 10 in the Northern Philippines

Dear Webmaster,

I am sending you some pictures of the standard car which i am about to pick-up in Northern Philippines...... but i still have to discover the year & model of this vehicle. The engine number of said vehicle is BE83784E. Any information that you may extend regarding this vehicle would be highly appreciated.

Hello Amalia,

Welcome!

 

Congratulations on being my first correspondent from the Philippines and the first Standard I have heard of in your country.

 

The car is a late 1956 or  early 1957 Standard Super Ten Phase 2. That makes it exactly 50 years old!  It is 4 cylinder overhead valve with a capacity of 948ccs. 4 speed gearbox and 12 volts. The chrome strips along the side distinguish it from earlier cars. Unfortunately the badge on the bonnet is missing, but we will be able to find one for you if you are interested. ( The Regalia Officer syas he has one in stock) Also a piece of chrome across the front panel, below the one that remains, is missing. Otherwise the car appears to be in very good condition. The wooden dashboard with extra instruments has been added of course. The front sidelights, rear stop and indicator lights have been changed but are similar to the originals.

 

I hope that the car is running well and gives you lots of pleasure. I'm sure there are not many more in the Philippines.

 

If there is any advice you need, I will try to assist. I have a 1956 version myself.

 

Regards,

Phil Homer

let me expresss my heartfelt gratitude for your kindness and the invaluable information you have imparted to me with regards to the Standard Super Ten phase 2.  I am now on my way to the northern Philippines to negotiate with the seller of this vehicle. From the bottom of my heart I thank you very much.
