Australian Standard 10 Feature
Have been flat out but have now started the resto on the Standard. My 7 year old (Zeke) is keen and is learning all about old cars. Here is a picture of us getting all the chrome off. Next is glass and doors. I will get the body sandbalsted and anew floor welded in the front. The motor goes fine so will leave alone, but am looking to pull it out with gearbox on just to do a good job of the engine and bay. It is currently where my daily driver parks but is going into the big shed soon. I am looking to sell a 42 jeep and that will make some room.
I am pleased that this has become a "Father and Son" restoration. I believe the colour is "Shoal Green". See another car in this colour here
Below are some pictures and text that Clinton sent earlier:
I thought you might be interested in a Standard 10 which I have recently bought with a view to restore. I am in Brisabne Australia. The car has 45K miles on it and is in pretty good shape. It is a "10" but has no boot. Some one has said this was called a "family". Still finding out about this. Anyone know what the color is ? Anyway still learning about them. I thought this may be of interest to UK people because of the various differences in the badging etc. Of note is the original flying kangaroo bonnet ornament. Hope this makes it to your web site.
Thanks Clinton, for letting us see this highly original car. I hope to see photos of it when it is finished. Best of luck with it and regards.
