This is one of only a few Standard Motor Company cars in existence in the US. The company, headquartered in England, existed prior to WWII. When the German bombing of England decimated the Triumph motor company in England (and yet the Standard company survived largely in tact) the Standard Motor company purchased the name “Triumph” and re-flagged under that name. Their primary reason was that the US market (easily the largest in the world then) didn’t exactly favor a company whose name of “Standard” seemed far too regular or ordinary.
