Talbot 75 Carlton Bodied Drop Head Coupe


Registered in May 1934 as a 65 the car received a 75 power train transplant, including a traffic clutch, in the late 90’s under the auspices of Ian Polson and David Thompson took over the restoration and used the car extensively. David sold the car in 1999 with just over 40000 miles on the clock after which it changed hands a couple of times and I acquired the car in October 2014 with just under 50000 miles on the odometer. The car has since covered about 8000 miles and has been on two tours to France, as well as other club tours in the UK and presented at the Concours of Elegance at Windsor Castle in September 2016. Recently returned from the successful club tour of Ireland.

Under my ownership the engine has been totally rebuilt by Ian Polson as well as the rear axle, ratio 4.3:1. The pre-selector-gearbox has had a total refurbishment by Tom Dark Engineering. Modifications include, downdraught Zenith carburettor, modern spinner oil filter, the club voltage limiter and electronic rev-counter. The engine has been tuned by Stanton Motorsports to get the correct adjustment of the fuel jets. Annual servicing has been done by professionals.

Time now to think of a new adventure so if you are looking for a comfortable versatile car which is good for gentle and reliable cruising, (this is not a car for the Flying Scotsman) please make contact and come and haggle. The car is liveried in Connaught Green with a very good hood and the interior is well patinated. Big history file.
