STANDARD 8/10/PennantClassic Car
These were Standard’s entries in the popular Minor/A30/Ford 100E market, and they are worthy rivals. The 8 only came with an 803cc engine and was very basically equipped: you didn’t even get winding windows until 1954, or an opening bootlid until 1957. The better-selling 10 did have these features from its inception in 1954 (except on the rare base-spec Family 10), and also a 948cc engine. The Pennant is a luxury 10 but with lengthened wings, two-tone paint, hooded headlamps and more equipment. They are outnumbered about five-to-one by the other models.
