Standard at SSAFA Car Show

Another of the cars at the SSAFA Car Show at Ewen Fields on 10 Oct 2014 was this one from the old Standard Motor Company.
Standard used the Standard Eight name on four different models starting with the Standard Flying Eight of 1938-1941, and the one in the photograph is the last of the Standard Eight models which was in production from 1953 to 1959. You can't tell from the pre-1963 number plate when this particular car was built, but the 'XN' tells you that it was first registered by London County Council. Although it was known as the Standard Eight the badge on the front of the car actually says 'Standard 8'.
