1955 Standard 10
PCD 716 is a Standard Ten, built by Standard-Triumph in Coventry in early 1955 (the engine is dated 5th January, the wiper motor is dated March), and first sold by Moores Ltd., of Brighton & Hove.
Nothing is ever as simple as it seems... and the history of PCD 716 never seemed particularly simple in the first place. I now know a bit more about the car's origins, but for various reasons I have decided to hold the details back for the time being. All will be revealed in due course...
I bought the car from a dealer in Northamptonshire in September 1991. It was delivered to my parents' house by lorry a couple of weeks later, and the 'quick project for the summer' was underway... little did I know the restoration would take me more than ten years!
