The Book of the Standard Motor Company - Front Cover

For many years, Standard was one of Britain's largest car-makers. The largest motor industry employer in Coventry, Standard rescued Triumph from oblivion, produced more than 500,000 tractors on behalf of Ferguson, and was one of the biggest contributors to Britain's efforts during WWII.

This book is the first to definitively tell the story of the Standard marque - a story that's not merely technical, but financial, too, and covers the personalities and the products in equal measure. Starting with the original Standard prototype of 1903, this book covers the scores of Standard models built until the brand was discontinued in 1963 (Britain) and 1987 (India).

It also covers the Ferguson tractor involvement, millitary aero-engine manufacture, military aircraft manufacturer (including Beaufighter and Mosquito fighter-bombers), Rolls-Royce Avon turbo-jet military engine manufacture, and Triumph cars.
