Description

1927 Standard Nine Falmouth Riviera Weyman Saloon.
Chassis number: 90619
Registration Number: RY5780
One of a handful of survivors with four known to exist. This car was foud in very low mile but dilapidated dry stored condition after many decades of lay up & has since been fully restored where required.
Mechanically the car had done very very few miles when found. The orginal brake linings were in situ with amost zero wear to the brake shoes. Likewise the engine has been disassembled & tolerance checked with no discernable wear found at all. This is evident when running with the oil pressure being off the clock at over 25lbs when hot. It starts instantly & runs lustily driving though the easy to use three speed box. A Boyce Motometer mounted atop the radiator indicates the cool running of the cooling system.
The car has a had a full retrim duplicating the original interior. Pleasingly the original brocade style door trims have been preserved along with original instrumentation & woodwork. New carpets are also fitted under foot. The car is equipped with a wonderful "Stanlight" roof which folds back in seconds after releasing the retaining catches allowing for alfresco full length open summer motoring. The "Weyman pattern" fabric body has also been re-covered & is brand new. The car sits on 4 cast artillery wheels shod with new tyres with a 5th mounted to the rear.
This is a very spacious & useable little saloon compared to a similar period austin 7, seating 4 people in decent comfort. It is very happy in B road motoring conditions but extended stints on motorways & fast dual carriage ways are best avoided. To drive this car is to understand how they were when new. It drives beautifully & elicits smiles from all that see it & is utterly charming.
In September 1927, ‘The Autocar’ was able to announce that ‘an entirely new light car rated at 8.9 H.P. will be introduced at Olympia’. The design had been laid out on the Directors’ Board Room floor, and it was running in prototype in six months. Despite its hasty evolution, the new fabric saloon, which was known as the ‘Falmouth’ model, selling at £198 10s. 0d., was an immediate success and proved a satisfactory vehicle from the outset.
The two prototypes were driven day and night non-stop for a month round a stiff 150 mile route in the Cotswolds, the only servicing permitted being a ten-minute pause every six hours for greasing, fuelling and any other necessary adjustments. After 18,000 miles of this treatment only £5 worth of spares were needed to restore the cars to first class condition and they averaged 26 m.p.h. and between 37 – 40 m.p.g.
The example we have here is a very early production model being car number 35 from the second batch produced. The beauty of this car is that it has never been got at & is under the bonnet exactly as it left the factory. An original buff log book, Manual & spare parts catalogue comes with the car along with a new "Old Stock" gasket set in its requisite packaging.
This is a car in perfect order wanting for nothing other then a new owner & a fully loaded picnic basket along with tartan rug to go in the rear. Its always a pleasure to discover one of these low mile time warp examples with a tight taut feel to it & no sloppiness whatsoever in the driving experience. Trundling around narrow Cornish lanes on the day of photography had a very "James Herriot" feel to the proceedings.
