1954 Sunbeam Talbot 90 Coupe/Power Steering/MOT For Sale
1954 Sunbeam Talbot 90 Coupe (IIa)
Electric power steering
M.O.T. - Nov 2019
As can be seen this Coupe is superb inside and out. But what about the bits that make it start, stop, steer and go ?
Since 2012 the following work has been carried out :
A complete engine overhaul - the crank reground and the block rebored, new valve guides fitted and the head skimmed. New main and big end bearings, pistons, thrust washers and valve springs fitted. The fly-wheel was lightened and engine parts were balanced before reassembly by Andrews Precision Engineering, Bromsgrove. The distributor was reconditioned by Distributor Doctor. The water pump was overhauled by EP Services. A new old stock carburettor was sourced and a Facet electronic fuel pump replaced the original.
A replacement/overhauled gear box, a new clutch and thrust bearing were fitted. The column gear change was converted to Castles floor change.
The steering box was rebuilt with new old stock parts by Holman Engineering in London. New track rod ends, new cross tube, tie rod and anti roll bar bushes were fitted and then electric fully adjustable power steering was fitted. Replacement and uprated shock absorbers were fitted from Svensons of Birmingham.
New brake linings, brake master cylinder and wheel cylinders have been fitted.
Many other parts have been replaced along the way, dynamo, voltage regulator, fuse box, battery, wheel bearings, exhaust - the list goes on.
So to answer the question above, she starts, stops, steers and goes as well as, if not better than, when she was new.
She has an M.O.T. until November 2019 and has a guaranteed insurance value with Classic Line Insurance of £25000.
