Standards not Standard?


Recommended Posts

So how uncommon are Standard 6s? Ive seen a few members with 1928 Standard 6s, but I haven't even seen mention of another 1929 Standard 6. I have searched the forum pretty thoroughly. I had assumed that Standard was standard, garden variety, but most discussion is regarding DAs or Victory 6s.

Body code is 1733(3?) - (the last number was drilled through)

Engine is J89-708 Which is odd.  75,519 was the last unit produced.

I havent located the frame code on the cross member, toe plate, or near the right rear spring.

I was reading #89,708. Maybe I have #89....or #708...?

 

And the manual that has always been in the car is titled 130 Series, which should have been for the 1928 Victory 6, vs. 140 Series for the Standard 6.  Maybe I have #89 produced early 1928, and only manuals from the Victory were available at that time?

If you are calling the body number the body CODE that is not it. If a sedan it would mean it is the 1733X sedan built so far that year. In four cylinder cars the engine number is ABOUT 50,000 higher then the serial number. Not sure if that still goes for Standards. It still is not the serial number. What does the title say?  We do have a Standard Six tech advisor in the club. Great guy and very knowledgeable. Have you talked to him?

Poppy 510, My Std. chassis No. J-28xxx with engine. No. J-37xxx.and was built Apr-May '28. So with your engine No. of J89xxx your car would nearly the last one built and should have a chassis No. around  that J-75xxx area in Dec.

Poppy 510, You are correct in that the Standard series is model 140 and the prefix letter would be "J". The Victory was series 130 and their prefix letter was "M'. There are series 140 Instruction books. Perhaps that series 130 book was all the previous owner could find?
