Standard Flying 12 Saloon

For those visitors of The Beret project who believe I am [only] Francophile and write about French cars: the Standard Motor Company Limited was a motor vehicle manufacturer, founded in Coventry, England. 
It purchased Triumph in 1945 and in 1959 officially changed its name to Standard-Triumph International and began to put the Triumph brandname on all its products.
For many years it manufactured Ferguson tractors powered by its Vanguard engine. All Standard's tractor assets were sold to Massey-Ferguson as of 31 August 1959.
As of 28 September 1959 Standard Motor Company was re-named Standard-Triumph International Limited. A new subsidiary took the name The Standard Motor Company Limited and took over the manufacture of the group's products. 
The Standard name was last used in Britain in 1963, and in India in 1987.
