Standard & Standard – Triumph, by Brian Long. Veloce Publishing, £19.99.
The history of the Standard Motor Co was well provided for by JR Davy 26 years ago (for 15/-, or 75p) but there is room for this large format refresher.
I liked this new coverage, with its good pictures (no colour, for a change), a chapter on the Triumph connection, others on specialist coachbuilders, Standard commercial vehicles and on Jensen, Avon and home-built specials using Standard parts. Even Ferguson tractor variations are explained. Good stuff!
Clubs are listed but the Standard Register, formed in 1959 by Davy, isn’t mentioned.
