Talbot 110


car description

George Roesch's 120 bhp 3.5 Litre 6 cylinder Talbot 110 Vanden Plas Sports Tourer is surely one of the most desireable English sporting cars of all time. It is very rapid, very stylish, a masterpiece of design and beautifully made. Any Talbot 110 is special but this one is even more so as it has travelled just over 150 miles since the completion of a total chassis up restoration. This was so comprehensive and the result so impressive that in 2008 the car won the prestigious Transport Trust Restoration Award which was presented to its owner-restorer personally by Prince Michael of Kent. The car was first seen by its restorer in 2002, covered in carpets in a lean-to garage which it shared with chickens, mice and spiders. It took three years of contact and gentle persuasion before the previous owner agreed to sell it, whereupon it had to be moved without delay so the deal was agreed and the car taken to its new home in 24 hours! After careful examination and discussion with various experts the buyer concluded that the only possible course of action was to undertake a total nut and bolt restoration as anything else would be a waste of a rare opportunity.
