Standard Sixteen
The Standard Sixteen was introduced in 1934 with a 2,143 cc side-valve 6-cylinder that was developed by Swallow Sidecars for their SS1. The larger Standard Twenty had a 2,664cc engine, also used by SS. The Flying Sixteen replaced the Sixteen in 1936, mechanically similar but having a more streamlined body.

Standard R16 1935, with 2,143cc 6-cylinder engine
Standard R16 1935 rear
Standard R16 1935. This rather staid coachwork gives no clue to the much more radical bodies that were about to emerge from Standard in the form of the 'Flying Standards'. However, under new Standard owner Captain Black cars from the Standard Motor Company could already be supplied with bodies from the New Avon Body Company, Swallow Sidecars and others.
