Standard and Triumph Car Club of NSW Inc.
shows an advertising sign at the Phoenix Foundry, Uralla NSW
Australia, which the Standard and Triumph Car Club visited earlier
in the year. The firm was an agent for Standard and other cars up
till about 1950 and still operates as a jobbing foundry while
keeping the original workshop intact as a heritage
The Standard and Triumph Car Club of NSW Inc. was formed in
October, 2003 when 21 enthusiasts from around the state joined
together at Newcastle for that purpose.
It was felt that there had been a need for some time for a club
to promote this marque in NSW. While there were other clubs
catering for the needs of particular Triumph owners none covered
Standards and the broad spectrum of Triumph vehicles. One of these
other clubs, the Triumph Pre-1954 Heritage, merged with the STCC
in July 2005 to form one large club.
Triumph cars had a short history, 1923 to 1944, some of that
spent in bankruptcy, when Standard bought the company and used the
name on some of their range. Therefore all post war Triumphs
shared the same parentage as Standards and shared many components.
The name of Standard was dropped in favour of Triumph due to
the word "standard" unfortunately coming to mean
"ordinary" or "base" in the USA. This occurred
shortly after Standard Triumph International was taken over by
The club covers all vehicles manufactured by the Standard Motor
Co. from its beginning in 1903 and the Triumph Motor Co. beginning
in 1923 as well as those by Standard Triumph International and the
Standard Triumph International division of British Leyland ending
in 1980 when the last Triumph designed vehicles were manufactured
at Canley. These vehicles include the following:
Pre war Triumphs, Dolomite,
Gloria, Super Series 7, 8, 9
Early Standards (pre war) Standard
Flying Range (8, 10, 12, 14, 20) Vanguard
Standard 8 and 10 Triumph
Renown and Mayflower Triumph
2000 and 2500, Stag TR range
Triumph Herald, Spitfire and GT6
Triumph Dolomite and Sprint
The club has four weekend Get Togethers in various parts of the
state each year as well as a State Rally, the location of which is
rotated around the state.
Because our membership is spread across such a big area we do
not hold monthly meetings at a single location. We hold meetings
in conjunction with our Get The aim of the Get Togethers is
primarily to give members an opportunity to meet and form
friendships with others who have a common interest in this marque.
There is ample time to admire each others vehicles, visit
interesting venues available in the town where we meet and to
share meals together as well as sometimes to display our vehicles
to the public.
The Rally is slightly more formal with some trophies given for
the most popularly judged vehicles.
The club issues 10 newsletters a year, February to November. It
includes news about membersí activities, Get Togethers, Rallies,
For Sale page, road tests of vehicles and technical information.
There are also photos of events and other things of interest. Also
"The Heritage" a substantial magazine is issued
