The Salmon and Sons bodied Standard

Attached are the latest pictures of the Salmons bodied Standard 10, as you can see she is looking a bit different now from when I first got her. Her registration number is DPH 648 so we have christened her “Daphne”.


On one picture you can see Rob, who sprayed the car for me at his workshop in Royston. Having removed all the old paint, he told me that when he got to the last layer this was the colour that he found and matched it with. Standard called this “Lavender Grey” from the sales brochure I have. Next she is going to the finishers to have a grey mohair hood fitted as the brochure states. So hopefully she will be on the road in spring 2009.



Thanks Steve,

What a good looking car, and a fantastic paint job. I also know that Brian Parkes is very supportive in supplying parts for your project. I hope the rest of the restoration goes as well. I look forward to seeing you and the car at the Golden Anniversary International Rally next summer.
