Standard 10 saloon car toy.

Standard Ten toy car photo

Victory Industries.

John was kind enough to photograph his immaculate Standard 10 toy car and email it over for inclusion on the site. He read about my comments on seeing, some time ago, a badly warped example of this rare car, so thought it was time I had a photo of a good one to add in here. His car was purchased in December 1965 and, bar slight wavy-ness to the window surrounds (present from new), is in really good condition. I'm fond of Standard 10s in real life, having had a few over the years, and John too has a soft spot for them, having learnt to drive in one in August 1958 (registration WNB 303 - well remembered!!).

The 8 and the 10 were Standard's small-car offerings for the 1950s, the 10 powered by a 948cc four-cylinder engine that would later do duty under the Triumph Herald's bonnet, of 1959.

John's toy example is finished in off-white with red seats. Online I found an example of an identical car finished in RAF blue, with beige trim, and another finished in black, with red trim. Does anyone know what other colour variations there were for these motorised toys?
