Welcome to the sale of this early Standard Eight saloon as shown
Local barn-find, and being sold as we found it, so we have done no work on it and its sold as seen as a non-running restoration project.
This is one of the early versions of this now rare car, with no external boot lid
First registered in 1955, it has acquired an 'A' plate some time during its life. We have a V5 for the car with the number shown. We understand it is possible to get an age-related 1955 number without too much hassle if you prefer through the (apparently very good) Standard Car Club.
The car appears pretty much complete.
The engine is not seized
Bodywise she needs new sills, but the floors feel reasonably sound, but we do not have a ramp so have not been underneath it to inspect thoroughly.
The tyres are all inflated, but would probably need replacement if it were put through an MOT (it is now exempt from tax and MOT of course)
Has a spare wheel, and there is a tool to open the access 'hatch'.
Original seats need a good clean and some minor repair, but are good for its age and history.
23532 miles recorded - no idea if thats genuine as we have no documents to confirm its history.
These early ones are worth a bit when done, so in our opinion its a viable project for an enthusiast.
Small, simple to work on, cheap to run and with decent parts availability its an ideal starter classic restoration project.
Please note the car is located in West Devon so please bear that in mind before bidding as it will need trailering away.
Cash on collection only on this, and within 7 days of the end of the auction. No exceptions - if thats not possible don't bid.
Any questions please email and we will do our best to answer, although pretty much everything we know about it is stated in the listing
