George Roesch's 6 cylinder 100 bhp 2,969 cc Talbot AV 105 was surely one of the most desirable English sporting cars of its time and they are rightly still very highly regarded for their performance and handling.

According to Clement Talbot’s records this car (number 35212) was delivered to Talbot dealer Warwick Wright in chassis form in 31st December 1932 and although we have no record of its original coachwork it now carries a replica of Vanden Plas’ sports tourer coachwork which was built in the 1970s as part of a major restoration of the car.

I have by good fortune had the opportunity to speak to the gentleman who’s company restored the car and there is also a letter in the file which he sent to the then owner in which he details all of the work he carried out. As well as listing the mechanical refurbishments he tells us that the body was built using the doors, boot lid, bonnet and front wings from another derelict Talbot. The restoration involved making new ash parts for the frame as well as fabricating new rear wings and other metal panels. It just so happened that at the same time he had in his workshop a VDP bodied Talbot 105 sports tourer which gave him the perfect template for the bodywork on this car.

As result of all this activity the car not only looks good but is mechanically very sound and drives really well. In addition there is a set of invoices on file for over £26,000 worth of mechanical work completed since its restoration which testify to it having been maintained to a high standard by appropriate Talbot specialists.

Any Roesch Talbot enthusiast will know how good these cars are but they are rare machines so there is a distinct possibility that you may never have sat in one let alone driven one so I would encourage you to come and have a look at it and maybe go for a drive as only then will you be able to appreciate just how good they are.
