Standard 10s in India

Two Standard 10s in India

Hiding behind the washing line, and gradually being subsumed in the desert, is this salvable Standard 10

Hello Phil,

Its about time I corresponded with you again, 'just saw an article in your site by my friend & fellow standard enthusiast Karl Bhote and that got some positive jealousy out of me so thought of contributing some recent pics. of Indian standards taken by myself as well as other enthusiasts.

APY 2682, above  is a very original and basically tidy one-family owned car in Hyderabad. Unfortunately the present owner, not being able to spare enough time or inclination for maintaining the car left it sitting in the open where it has been rotting away for the last six-seven years! The owner did call me up once with the thought of selling the car. However, when I found him free to contact again, he said he's changed his mind and doesn't want to do anything with it at present.....maybe should just keep my fingers crossed!

AP13 9013, the black Super 10, was recently purchased by a friend Mr. Aman from an Army officer. The car is originally from Madras (now chennai), later brought to Hyderabad, hence the present re-registration. Mr. Aman is going to restore it. 'hopefully more detailed pics. of this car later as I get to see it.

Thanks Shyam,

Good to hear from you.

These two are definite candidates for the Rust in Peace Section, though if you come back to me when either or both are restored, I will be pleased to feature the cars again. I hope you can give the owners some encouragement to get them back on the road!

The accompanying cars that you sent me, which are in much better condition, will be featured elsewhere on the site.

Look forward to seeing news of progress on your own Pennant.

Kind regards,


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
