Only 89 examples of the BG 3½ litre were built. This particular one (chassis number 4532, former UK registration CPO472) is thought to be the only James Young Three Position Drophead Coupe on a BG chassis, which truly makes it a unique car.
It was briefly owned by Anthony Blight. From the man who wrote Georges Roesch's biography, you would expect nothing but love for this splendid automobile. But strangely enough, Anthony Blight found the car ugly, and he was annoyed by the fact that he couldn't turn it around in his small street. The truth is that he had merely bought the car for its engine, which he used to build a replica 110 racer… As a result, the car now has engine number BA110.1, a correct Talbot 110 engine and the very first one produced.
The last owner bought this car in 1984 at the Beaulieu autojumble. He fully and meticulously restored it, and told us that he used a total of 18 cow skins to restore the leather interior to its former glory.
Rarely do we get such a complete file with a car: original V5C and log book, over 300 restoration pictures, invoices going back as far as 1968, several workshop manuals on the 6 cylinder engine and on the Wilson preselector gearbox, and much more.
The beige leather, the blue carpets and the fine interior wood blend together very harmoniously and give the right impression of sumptuous luxury to this interesting pre-war grand tourer. But don't get fooled by its distinguished looks: the 3½ litre engine that's hiding under the bonnet will give you the impression of... invincibility!
