The Standard Swallow 16 HP is the most powerful model in the range of vehicles built using Standard Motor Company components.
Appearing in 1931 as a result of expanding the line of models and the desire of management to make more powerful cars, he also could not find enough popularity.
At Swallow Coachwork, only the bodywork and various body parts were made, and all this was put on the chassis and the Standard 16 HP engine (at that time it was made in a similar body – Ensign).
It, like other Standard Swallow models that were produced before 1931, also had double bumpers and intake pipes as standard. The car was sold a little more expensive than its predecessors - for £ 265. Before the cessation of production in 1933, only about 56 cars were made.
