Standard 10 Light Utility
Standard Motors of Coventry came up with a rival to the Austin 10 light utility with this more military looking conversion of their 1936 Standard 10 saloon car. With a full length tilt, and pick up rear load bed, the Flying Standard 10 "Tilly" was a common sight with British Armed Forces. Many were used in France and belgium, and subsequently left behind. Production continued, and these were found driving across the Libyan desert, and into North West Europe in 1944.
This is a three part resin casting, with a driver. It looks like a 1930's Landrover, with all the cross country abilities of a rowing boat.
Price is £10 and it will be appearing on the website soon. They are available now.
