Sir I think the better of the 2 is a Pennant, IMHO it looks much more appealing on the outside as well as inside, compared to the Super 10 (I'm sure Karl too would agree!) although I guess it is slightly longer than the latter, at the rear...otherwise I wouldnt find any difference in the 2 with regards to maintenance etc.
PS- Sir I'm sending you a pm regarding another car that you'd asked me about. Please check.

Incidentally, stampro- I'm trying to source a good pennantt steering wheel for my early Herald as I really find that attractive with the trims on the spokes! plus its more or less the same colour as that of early Heralds....'couldnt find one such steering wheel at Madras.....how bout any chances of getting one in Madurai? Do let me know.

i was enroute for a meeting with a collegue of mine and i spotted this car in a parking lot of a colony. dont ask me how i managed to see it through the high walls. i asked my driver to go into the place. my collegue thought i had gone mad and kept reminding me we were going the wrong way. enough of that now the car. it is not for sale unfortunately or else yours truely would have picked it up for sure. something about the car that appealed to me (2 door i think and that my father owned one in his college days). the owner also has 2 beetles and a baby austin. i could not take pictures as the gaurd of the colony was chaseing me and the other cars were in covers with ropes tied around them. after bribeing the gaurd he told me the owner is a bachelor and leaves home early and returns by 10pm. spends his sundays with the cars so this sunday i shall give him company. the door are almost falling off on this one and the windows were left open. the other cars are in far better shape. i wonder why the step car treatment to this one

Not to mention the fuel tank opening on the left rear wing stuffed shut with a plastic/cloth! How much would one need to spend by buying a lockable fuel tank caps??
I wonder if this used to be his daily transport perhaps?

hope you enjoy your almost burnt dinner stanher .
i saw it and could not resist takeing pictures for you'll.
the car like i said has been given step car treatment by the owner compared to the other cars (seeing part of the bumpers and wheels and exhaust tips). it can be restored and i think i am going to hold the owner at gun point and take the car from him. i think i have found a car for my father to truely enjoy and bring back his college day memories.

Well if it has anything to do with standards, like if it happens to be fitted with any standard parts or something....?
Incidentally my mech. says he spotted a Herald in a similar colour at the local scrapyard last week when I was away.....only to realise that it fortunately or unfortunately did not come for breaking but belonged to a customer who came for some spares from the scrapguy......turns out he came driving all the way from Gulbarga (Karnataka) & claimed to have driven even as far as Solapur in his herald.....said it was in his family from new but underwent quite a few mods. due to lack of finding spares- the rear axle had been converted to a Standard 10 type plus had fiat 1100 side pattis & no badges/monograms......I'm imagining it to've looked somewhat like this car although he said the body of that car was very neat....'wish I could've just seen that car though.....even if it wasnt for sale......as long as it was a stanher....!

it is original and to die for, trust me on this one. i rarely get impressed with cars. this landmaster was something original to the tee.
man the poor guy, atleast he tried to keep the car alive with his modifications and by the look of things he is not happy with the modifications that he made, and want to change it back. he can actually say he drove high and low to find original parts . instead of driveing the earth someone should tell him to buy a scrapped herald and use it as a donor car, it would make his life simple.
this car is in no condition to drive 100 meters from where it stands. you might be driveing doorless after that

Uh, to the best of my knowledge there never was any car called the standard 1200.....the only standard car in the 70s (in India) was the Gazel & that wasnt a 1200 but 948cc with the herald engine continued.....
Or since you mention 1200 I'm guessing it is a Triumph (UK import) Herald 1200, but again that was made only till 1969-70.....
I'd sure like to see the pics. of this car your friend has so I could know what it really is...!

Thank you JayD the car in the profile pic is not mine.

It is a restored Standard Companion sold by Ravi Kiran of Bangalore two years back.

I don't know who the lucky owner is.
