The name "Standard" adopted by founder R.W. Maudslay to represent the very forefront of excellence. It referred, literally, to the standard, or flag, that traditionally leads an army into battle. The company used similar flag-related names such as 'Ensign', 'Flying Standard' and 'Vanguard' (the leading soldiers in a battle-field charge). It was the eventual debasement of the word "Standard" in general usage that led, 60 years after the company was founded, to the name being dropped by the parent company. It no longer meant what it once did.

It is very important to note that the FLYER was only produced Pre WW2 after the war a new model the 4/8A appeared.

Any 1946/7/8 Standard Flying 8 offered for sale is in fact incorrectly labelled and supporting documents should be scrutinised

as it may effect the value etc.

See guide link below

DS, SV and BF number plates are re-issues on the so called age related plate scheme. May not be original number plates which effects the value.

To anyone who has driven a 6 volt Standard in the dark the lighting is more like candles.

The answer is to change the headlamp bulbs to Halogen

Simple to fit just plug and go.
