Standard - Standard Ten

The Standard Ten was introduced from 1954, offered with both 2 door and 4 door bodies, as a better appointed and more powerful version of the "Eight" which had been unveiled the previous year, 1953. The overhead valve engines engine capacity was increased to 948 cc by increasing the bore size from 58 mm to 63 mm. There was also an Estate version called the Standard Companion, plus pick up and panel van types as well. Standard Ten production carried on until 1959. There was also another version of the Standard Ten called the Pennant with slightly different bodywork and a more powerful engine.

Standard Ten tyre size was originally 5.20x13 which is radial equivalent 145R13 size. Blockley produces the perfect 145R13 steel belted tyre, which has a diameter very similar to the original size (22.56") - see details below.

Standard Pennant had larger tyres with 5.60x13 tyres, or equivalent 165R13 tyres which Blockley also produces.
