Standard Flying Twenty
Flying Standards got their name from the new flag badge which seemed to be 'flying'. Models were introduced during 1936 beginning with the Flying Twelve (1609cc sv), Flying Sixteen (2143cc), and Flying Twenty (2664cc 6-cylinder). In fact these first three 'Flying' Standards shared the same bodywork aft of the windscreen and had different bonnet lengths for their wheelbases. The engines also differed and the Twenty A20 had a six cylinder 2,664cc engine which was also taken up by SS Jaguar for their 2.5-litre cars. The body was styled under Arthur Ballard and engineered by Ted Grinham; it was built by Briggs Motorbodies. The Twenty 20A for 1938 was given the 'waterfall' grille in common with other Standards and for 1939 the 'torpedo' body was replaced with a 'notchback' body for the Twenty 20CA. No Twenties were produced after 1939.
