1957 Standard Gold Star 8: Restored/Stunning Car For Sale

Standard Gold Star 8: Restored/ Stunning Car



The Standard Eight introduced in 1953 was a completely new four door saloon with unit construction and an overhead-valve engine. By 1957 the 803cc engine produced 30 bhp at 5000 rpm through a 4-speed gearbox and the last run ’Gold Star’ benefitted from an opening boot and wind-up windows. The car was popular with small businesses & driving schools alike and over 136, 000 were produced.



Our lovely ‘Gold Star’ was first registered in 1957 and has covered just 57k miles from new.



Summary:

·  Full restoration completed by last owner

·  Professional bare metal/ high quality respray in original colour (black)

·  Metal sun-visor fitted to complete 50’s look

·  New carpets & door edge trims

·  Wheels powder coated

·  5 x new tyres

·  New door hinges & handles

·  Bumpers rechromed

·  Brakes overhauled – cylinders/ shoes/ copper pipes

·  Re-wired

·  Ignition – points/ plugs/ leads/ distributor etc all replaced

·  Alternator conversion

·  Washers/ wipers



On the road the car drives bang on and simply looks right, sounds right and smells right. The Gold Star really captures the 1950/ 60’s classic driving experience and always draws positive comments, smiles & waves



Still carrying her original registration number and with a small history folder that includes a copy of original buff logbook, invoices, MOT’s etc this Standard is a rare survivor.



An ideal entry to classic car ownership that will always be welcome/ win cups at local car shows and could easily be used to earn income from TV & film work – we hired her to a production company filming at Goodwood House this week!!



We recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this delightful classic.
