 Superb Standard 12 Drophead Coupé Restoration

Postwar Standard 12 DHC is restored

This Standard 12DHC was originally owned by Mr Evan Gerrard from Upton-Heath, Chester. It was registered on 15th May 1947 and used by him until June 1963. It was then taken off the road. It then stayed in its resting place until 1992 when a friend of mine rescued it. He began the restoration, and after three years decided to sell it due to work commitments. I then bought the car as a basket case and started the restoration which took nine years. I would like to thank club officials and club members for their help with technical information and advice regarding the restoration. Without this advice, the restoration would have taken much longer. If anyone is restoring a Standard 12DHC and needs advice, please feel free to contact me.

Many thanks George, here is an example of my request for more members to send me in the result  of their hard work. This page was published in just 8 hours or receipt of George's email!. Judging by the condition of the car originally this was a "Heros's job" There is lots of room for photos of progress during the nine year restoration, so if you would like to share those with us, George, they would be more than welcome.

In the meantime, if you would like to click on any of the photos below, you can see a larger version.
