For sale on behalf of a friend who's presently bereft of any kind of computer. or for that matter any other 21st century electronic hardware. is his rather splendid 1948 Standard 12 Saloon.

Over the past two years' the car has been extensively and comprehensively restored with the bodywork and chassis being thoroughly stripped. properly repaired where required and finished in Standard's original shade of ‘Blue'.   Underneath the suspension. brakes and steering have been stripped and rebuilt as required. with a complete new exhaust system and tyres' fitted all around.  Whilst on the topside. all window seals have been replaced along with interior headlining. door-trims and carpet complement the original seating.

Mechanically the engine has been totally re-built. including re-ground crankshaft and main bearings. cylinders re-bored to +0. 020”. new timing chain. valve guides and springs as well as a new water-pump and heater fitted; the vehicle's wiring has been thoroughly overhauled as required.

All this work has resulted in a practical. comfortable and dependable classic motorcar. bereft of leaks and well able to keep up with modern traffic with its 1600 engine. It drives and handles very sweetly and is only being sold because the owner's presently working on yet another project – this time a 50s Commer Cob which I'm sure will be restored to an equally high standard! Finally there's not a great deal of paperwork with the car. but it does come with its original brown  log-book. detailing the first owner(s). and some previous M. o. Ts.

As the Standard really has to go the asking price is. I think. very fairly reflected given the quality of the restoration carried out. but if you would like further details. view or chat about the car. please feel free in contacting Barry Winn on 01579 363734.  Meanwhile although it states ‘collection only'. I'm sure Barry may be talked into delivering the car within a negotiated radius at fuel cost.  

The successful purchaser will be asked to pay a deposit of £200. 00 via Paypal. or bank transfer if preferred. with balance payable upon collection.
