Standard had cleared the debris from the bombing of Coventry before the end of the war and were able to produce their first car in 1945. The first post-war model was the Standard Eight which was a small car with a 1,009 cc engine that produced a mere 28 bhp. Unlike the Ten and the Fourteen, the 1945 Standard Eight had a rigid front axle. All the cars now had a four-speed manual gearbox with a floor-mounted gear-lever.
