History of the Standard Ten

The Standard 10 was developed between 1954 and 1960 as a bigger engined and significantly more luxurious variant of the Standard 8. The Standard Ten was a model designation used by the British Standard Motor Company for many compact automobiles built between 1906 and 1961. The name alludes to the car's fiscal horsepower, or tax horsepower, which is determined by the surface area of the pistons. This technique rapidly became obsolete as an estimate of engine power, but it remained useful as a means to classify automobiles for tax purposes.

British publication The Motor evaluated a Ten saloon. In 1954, the Ten had a maximum speed of 69.0 mph and a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 38.3 seconds. Fuel usage was measured at 34.4 miles per imperial gallon. The test vehicle cost £580 including taxes. In 1955, an estate version called the Standard Companion was introduced, and from 1957 to 1960, the Standard Pennant was introduced, which was a sportier and more improved variant.
