Postwar Standard 8 DHC Restoration Feature

Postwar Standard 8 Drophead Coupe Restored

News and photos of another Postwar 8 Drophead Coupe has reached me. Again the colour chosen for the restoration is White. The owner tells his own story:

Hi Phil,

         I bought the car for my father some 10 or so years ago as a project for us both, I am an engineer and my father was a mechanic, the Standard 8 was my fathers first car and he always had a great love for them, it took me 2 years to find the right car, and of all places I found it on the isle of Arran just of the west coast of Scotland, as the crow fly's about 50 miles from where I was living at the time, the car was finally completed in 1998, {which I have a full photographic history of}, my father used the car on weekends and holidays which he got great pleasure from and was very proud of her, sadly my father died in 1999 and I now own the car and I too am getting a lot of pleasure from it, I  hope you find this ok and the photos are ok.

Best Regards,   Dave Cameron.

Yes Dave, they are fine. We hope that you will join us in our Centenary Celebrations and bring the car with you for us all to admire.

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
