Archive Feature on a 1932 Avon Standard 9 Sports Tourer
This Avon has been for sale on a Dealers site in Iowa for some time now. You can see it featured by clicking on this photograph of it , which will open up a slide show of the car
The attractive car was first featured on this site in 2002, so I repeat the rest of the information that I had at that time:
Alan Cureton hails from Louisville, Ohio and owns both this circa 1931/1932 Avon 9 Sports Tourer and a Standard Little 9 of the same vintage. The Avon pictures appear to be taken around 1969 and Alan describes the car as being in a barn for 35 years. He says the car runs but could do with a coat of paint. I do hope that you can bring the car up to a condition that it deserves Alan, and we look forward to seeing pictures when the restoration is complete.
Below are three more photos of the car as emailed to me.
