A civil engineer by profession, Reginald Walter Maudslay was quick to recognise the rapidly increasing scope of the horseless carriage and founded the Standard Motor Company in Coventry during 1903. By the end of that year, three cars powered by over-square, single-cylinder engines had been produced and a labour force of twenty-five amassed. There are various explanations for the company name, from the cars being assembled from 'standardised patterns and interchangeable parts' to the founder proclaiming he 'was determined to maintain the best possible standard'. Whatever, success came its way and in 1924 production reached 10, 000 cars, earning it a market share, comparable to that of the Austin Motor Company. The models produced in the '20s were named after English towns - not just those local to the factory, such as Canley, Kenilworth and Warwick, but some much further afield, eg Teignmouth, Falmouth and Exmouth.
Manufactured in 1924, chassis number V34851 is believed to have been supplied new by Rossleigh Ltd. Motor Engineers of Newcastle-upon-Tyne costing some £235 when new. Understood to have been in the ownership of one individual from manufacture until the breakout of World War Two, it is reputed that the Standard was chauffeur-driven during this time and covered no more than forty miles in one journey. Remaining untouched post-war until 1956, the car was acquired into the possession of a Mr. J. H. Ling Esq of Wimbledon in 1964, and during the period to 1968, the Tourer was lavished with a full restoration. Subsequently a resident of the Newburn Hall Motor Museum for some three decades, ‘MF 9090’ is also known to be a previous record-holding car, having completed the Around Britain Challenge covering 2, 046 miles in just 72 hours, the whole journey completed in wintertime with the roof down to reduce drag. Previously appearing in film and television productions, the V3 has also attended numerous events. More recently a static exhibit in a restaurant, and therefore requiring recommissioning, the vendor has recently donated the Standard to the Betel Charity for them to offer for sale to raise required funds.
