 TJ Richards bodied Standard 8

Postwar 8 Tourer by T.J. Richards

Philip Howard's Sulzer Fire Pump

Hi Phil,

June and I met up with you at the 2005 Standard East Anglian Run, we were guests of Ian & Vera Leggett, that was certainly the best organized and  friendly club run we have ever been on, and same goes for the Stratford-upon- Avon Rally which we also attended,  the organization was a credit to your members,

We are planning to come over again in 2010 and we hope to be able to catch up with you all again.

Anyway I have enclosed a photo of our baby for your archives.

1946 Standard Flying Eight, Body built by T.J. Richards & Sons, Adelaide, South Australia. vehicles sold by Chrysler,Dodge, De-Soto Ltd,Adelaide,

Dave & June Kent, 

Old Smithfield, South Australia.

Thanks Dave and June,


My apologies for the delay in including this feature.


Its good to see another restored T.J. Richards body and yours looks very pretty. In England the 8 was not called a Flyer after the war and I suspect that the same applies in Australia? Please let me know?


It would be good if you could coincide your visit with the International Rally at Wyboston Lakes, near St. Neots at the end of June. We look forward to seeing you then.


Kind regards,
