1929 Standard 9 Feature

Previously unknown model found in Australia

9 Hp based Standard dates from 12929

Only occasionally do we stumble across a model that was previously unknown to the club,  but it does still happen. This is such a case. Without doubt it is based on the 1929 9 Hp chassis, but there is no previous record or photograph of this bodywork, which I would describe as a 2-seater Doctors Coupé. It appears to have a dickey seat. I think that it doesn't have a hood so the hood irons are dummys, as was a common practice around that time. There is no record of this as a factory built model, but it looks too good to be home brewed.

We know that Standard exported lots of chassis to Australia in the 20's and 30's and this could be one of them. Perhaps it was bodied by an Australian bodybuilder but at the moment, I just don't know. If you have any more information about this car please share it with us.

My thanks go to Cathy White who has informed me about this car. She would like to know what it is worth but as there are no others, I have nothing to offer as a price comparison.

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
