1947 72 years old and only 33424 miles For Sale

This is a unique opportunity to purchase a rare and interesting vehicle.

This is a Sunbeam Talbot 2 Litre Drop Head Coupe manufactured in late 1946 and first registered in 1947. The vehicle is bodied by the well known coach builders E.D. ABBOTT LTD of Farnham. There was only a total of 67 of these cars built and only a hand full that have survived.

The 2 litre range of vehicles were first introduced in September 1939 just a few days after WW2 so there were very few early cars built. Production continued between 1946-1948 in the form of Saloons, Tourers and Drop Head Coupes. In all there were a total of 1308 cars produced, with the DHC model being the rarest. The model range were built using many parts from other vehicles within the Rootes Group, in fact the engine is a 1991cc unit from Humber. These vehicles were very similar to the Sunbeam Talbot 10 range with the exception that it had a longer bonnet in order to accommodate the larger engine.

This car has a very extensive history file and clarifies the total mileage of 33424, just an average of 465 for each of its 72 years !

This car is in excellent condition and very well known to the club that caters for these vehicles being the Sunbeam Talbot Alpine Register. This car is the club current and past MASTERCLASS award winner.

This car has a well known first owner and was purchased from the Sunbeam dealer in Manchester Tom Garner Ltd and believe this garage is still in existence. It had a couple of extras added to the specification when ordered, the most important being a Jackall hydraulic lifting system. This is in perfect working order and very useful for winter storage.

There have been articles written about this car, the most detailed being in the September 1995 edition of The Automobile. Should you be interested in this car you,can find the full specification from an original brouchure on the excellent Sunbeam Talbot Alpine Register website.

Offered for sale @£34995.
