We are delighted to offer this extremely attractive Talbot Ten Drop Head Coupe, coachbuilt by E D Abbott Limited.
Following on from the Talbot Ten of 1935/6, which was effectively the replacement for the sporting Hillman Aero Minx, the Sunbeam-Talbot marque came into being and a revised 10hp range was announced, being described at the time as ‘Britain’s Most Exclusive Light Car’
Well equipped and available in saloon, drophead coupe and sports tourer versions, the Sunbeam-Talbot Ten was to prove very popular and was reintroduced after the war, continuing until 1948.
On offer here is a particularly pretty example of the Drop Head Coupe, with Coachworks by Abbott of Farnham.
Dispatched from the Abbott works in November 1937, the car was delivered to its first owner by the Bristol Motor Company, the car appears to have retained its original registration which also hails from Bristol.
Restored over an extended period, the car remains in delightful condition throughout and is surprisingly roomy with good performance.
The car is in exceptional order having been well cared for and used regularly, proving completely reliable. Stylish and remarkably useable, this delightful motor car always turns heads wherever it goes.
