    It may well have Been, Standard were the heavy Side of Triumph Motors.

    Just as a side here, The Standard swallow became the Standard Jaguar and the rest is History

    That picture is similar to my '47 Singer Roadster Pickup Utility I gave to my son (in need of a total Resto) back in Oz. Similar story on Singer/ Sunbeam and so on...

    Thinking about it I am pretty sure Dad did refer to Triumph and Tractor in the same sentence more than once in the past.

    68 Cougar with a 302 that I loved until it was stolen and partially stripped, then lost all interest and pieced it back together and sold it cheap. My other favorite was the perfect car for Hawaii.. a 74 and a half MGB. I spent almost as much time working on it as driving it but loved it.

    1968 Buick Lesabre (Land Yacht) this convertible is the right color (maroon) but mine was a hard top and all maroon. Passed down when my great Aunt died, I was 16. She had driven 2 miles to church a week, took me a month to open up (blow out) the 4 barrel 350 so it would get up and move a bit, don't think she ever had it over 35 mph. Sold it a year later when I went into the Marines for the impressive price of $500, my parents thought I would be lucky to get $250.

    1969 427ci Chevy Caprice four door. Emerald green and a torn vinyl top. Towed it home in 1979 for $500. Fixing that car I learned I was going to be a mechanic. I also learned the speedometer cable snaps if you keep the throttle on the floor after the needle gets to the end of the dial.
