1935 Avon 12 DHC Feature


Feature on a 1935 Avon 12 DHC

I have told myself that one day soon, I will run a competition on this website to identify readers favourite Standard Car. As this is a website, this would have to be based on looks rather than the driving experience. When I do that, then this car will probably be near the top of the voting list.


The good thing is that this one is also for sale, (Oct 30th, 2003) at a Dealers in the Midlands, so you could be driving the dream. Its Avon bodied on the 1935 Standard 12 chassis and, unusually, has a fair amount of room in the back, making it a usable 4-seater. Its tastefully finished in 2 tone blue with a double pinstripe on the wing edge. Clearly a large amount of time and money has been spent to get it to this first class condition. The car was previously unknown to the club.



The Car is for Sale at ASHTED CLASSIC CARS, THE WILLOWS, MEER END ROAD, KENILWORTH, WARKS, CV8 1PU. Tel: 01676 532289. As I have said, the car is unknown to the club and this is not a recommendation to buy. The Club is not associated with the dealer in any way.

I am aware that there are other cars and information that could be added to this site to make it more comprehensive, so if you have material and photographs, please let me know.  Please send me, Phil Homer, a message at: Phil Homer
