Description

1931 Standard 9HP 111 Saloon
Registration no. VC 9447
Chassis no. 110708

A Series 9hp 111 saloon, this Standard Swallow is in need of complete restoration but is remarkably complete, coming as it has from a museum collection. With its 1,135cc four-cylinder sidevalve engine, it is an important vehicle in the history of the British motor industry, being produced on a Standard chassis, and a precursor to the vehicles we now know as Jaguars. A rare survivor this charming example would make a fantastic contender for full restoration or oily rag preservation. Offered with Buff logbook.
