Some English car (Standard Pennant)?

More likely Indian produced Standard Ten. According to Wikipedia the Pennant name was not used, but I have no second source for this.

Local assembly Pennant was badged as Ten in India.

Badged 10, not Ten:

From Wiki: "From 1955, versions of the Standard Eight and Ten were produced, with ever-increasing local content. The Pennant joined in 1959, although it too was curiously branded "Standard 10" and devoid of bootlid trimwork."

Jale wrote Badged 10, not Ten

.. which leaves us with a choice to make. It's fairly trivial, but one we should probably flag up so people remember it for the future.
(a) ignore 10 and keep this small bunch of Indian-builds of what in UK was 1957+ Pennant (finned body, 2-tone) as Ten to sit happily within the general family group
(b) switch the small group of Indian-builds to 10, but keep the previous style (1955+ smoother body, less trim, UK and India builds) as Ten.
(c) switch all 1955+ Tens from everywhere to 10.

(c) should also mean all 1954+ Eights from everywhere have to beome 8 to match. Most sources (online, books etc) say Eight and Ten rather than the numbers, but it's inconsistent. Brochures have both Ten and 10 - and the selection found online might suggest this was changed with the 1957 Phase II facelift (new grille).

(b) seems a bit clumsy - having both Ten and 10 groups, but is workable if all Indian 1957+ 10s have [Pennant] attachment - we just have to remember down the line that there's a small specific Indian batch with 10. (c) may seem neat at first glance, but clumsier on a bigger scale with all the pre-1954 Eights, Flying Eights etc, staying as they are within the general Standard sequences of words (Nine, Twelve etc), so we'd have big clumps of both 8 and Eight and over time examples probably straying into the wrong field. So I don't like (c), but don't have strong opinions between (a) or (b).

My preference is for words if possible, as Flying Nine looks less clunky than Flying 9, for instance, and having started down a path it is probably better to stay with it.

Having said that, however, the demands of the software will no doubt take precedence, and no problem with that.

Standard 20 (van) had advertisements with "Twenty", but manuals and instructions with "20":
