Standard 10/12 Speedline.

AAD 570 was spotted in the museum at Gaydon in Warwickshire. It was registered in November 1934 and has a 1479cc engine. The Speedline found an appreciative public which led to the Flying Standards of the late 1930s. It features a streamlined body of a type that became popular in the 30s when wind-cheating designs were very much in favour. To give the car some extra urge over more plebian versions the 1.5 litre engine was fitted with a higher compression cylinder head and twin carburettors. Gear ratios were raised and knock-on wheels fitted. The car on show here spent some of its early years being used on Police business.

Standard Books Whether for the 10/12 Speedline as shown below, or any other type of Standard, it is worth having a look on Amazon for books, DVDs, Videos etc.

Several thousand photos feature in the various galleries here at oldclassiccar. If you're interested in Standards, whether just the 10/12 Speedline shown here, or other models in addition to 10/12 Speedlines, then it is worth looking at the other photos in this set of 135 motoring images, and also on the main photos page where details of all the image collections are held.

Most of the photographs in this set were taken during 2007, either at shows, road runs or in museums. A small number were also sent over to me by visitors to this site, for which I'm very grateful. If you have a photograph that you've taken, showing a vehicle that doesn't yet feature on this site, it'd be great to see it. If you own an example of Standard 10/12 Speedline and would like to see it featured in the Your Cars elsewhere on the site, then by all means get in touch too!
