Welcome to the Official Standard Motor Club Site -

Whilst membership of other Classic Car clubs is in decline, the membership of this Club is rising month on month. One reason might be our online 24/7 Spares Shop with the largest stock of Standard Spares available anywhere.

Or maybe its because of our active Local Groups, but some think its our regularly delivered full-colour monthly magazine and lively UK wide events programme. -  If you own any Standard, or intend to own one in the near future, you owe it to yourself to join our friendly membership! We welcome owners from any country and our unrivalled Spares Service is available to all.

Dear Phil

The true benefits of belonging to the Standard Motor Club have come to light with the terrific help that Brian Parkes, the Pre-48 spares officer has given me in sourcing ALL the parts for a complete engine rebuild of my Flying 8 tourer in just  a few days. I urge anyone with a Standard  to join the Club,  they wont be sorry. Darrell Cunningham
