4 1/2 liter 6 cilinder twin overhead cam engine producing 250 HP. French top-class gentlemens express. Very rare only 26ex. built. Totally rebuilt mechanically and bodily. Dark blue with original grey leather. Impressive on the road and very chique to look at. This is a car of which only 26 were built. This particular one bea¯ng n° 13. Chassis n° 111013 I think that the best description of the car is for a start the article and test drive of this particular car in Classic Cars Magazine from january 1996. After this aricle was written, the Talbot arrived in the collection of two collectors in England (Brian Morgan & Roy Beebee) who carried out a ground-up restoration, mechanical as well as on the body and chassis, on the car. Many pictures showing for instance the rolling chassis + the cars mechanics and also different stages in the restoration of the bodywork prove the comprehensive way in which the Talbot Lago was restored. A lot of documentation and letters, between them and the Talbot Lago Club in America and France, once again illustrate the real profesionnal restoration on the car. Now the Talbot is painted dark blue, which is an excellent color for this car, certainly in combination with the totally original grey leather interior, which carries that bit of patina that makes connoly leather even nicer. The excellent condition is obvious when looking at the Talbot, and even more when driving it. The power output from the six cilinder 4,5 litre engine is fenomenal! The behaviour of the car on the road is excellent. In fact when driving it one tends to forget that one is driving a car from 46 years old! The preselector Wilson gearbox makes things very easy. It is just a mental adaptation before starting of with the car. Very relaxing and efficient system indeed. RTL television came to make a very nice reportage on this Talbot Lago for the program of La collection de Léon. I have a copy of this videotape. Finally, within the documentation, I also found the original factory production sheet for this Talbot. The car, at that time black with chrome wire wheels and white wall tyres, was sold new to the well known coachbuilder Oblin in Brussels. The previous owner kept also some history on other T26 Talbot Lago cars when offered for sale in the specialised magazines. One of the previous owners is the very well known Pilkington family which exhibited this rare motorcar in the Totnes Motor Museum. It is clear to me that owning this car makes you member of a very select Talbot Lago club.
