In 1954 the Ten was introduced as a larger engined (and less basic) version of the Standard Eight, though sharing a similar frame and transmission. Overdrive (from March 1957) or a temperamental semi-automatic were available as options. An estate version, the Companion was launched in 1955. It was among the first British estate-wagons to have rear-passenger doors.
