The owner states : "My car was put together for touring use with a standard compression ratio. It was only envisaged that the car would be used for normal road and touring use thus it has standard rods and pistons. The engine work was done by Cotswold Engineering, Cheltenham. The ash frame was built by myself copying an original Coupe des Alpes tourer frame that I had and it was skinned and the wings made by John Pitney and Sons in Surrey. Much work on the running gear was done by Stuart Lloyd in Wolverhampton. The compression ratio is probably around 7 to 1. Date of registration and first registration in U.K. are both 01. 09. 2017. Was registered and/or used. Declared manufactured 1933."

_______________________________

The Talbot 105 six cylinder 2969cc engine produced 119bhp at 4,800 rpm and was immensely robust having 7 main bearings. In "Brooklands trim" further tuning and in increased compression ratio of 10:1 gave rise to a claimed 125 bhp.

From Switzerland, designer Georges Roesch was employed from 1916 as Talbot’s chief engineer. Starting with the 1 ½ litre 1665cc 14/45, Roesch introduced his flexible 6-cylinder overhead valve engine from 1926, insodoing rescuing the company’s fortunes. This engine proved to produce a high output for its size and attracted new customers. In 1929 the 14/45 was superceded by the 2.3 litre 75, followed by the sporting 90 in 1930, with sporting success soon to follow with highly effective competition cars.

Dealer involvement secured the racing success that took off from here, the Fox & Nicholl concern in Tolworth taking a Works team of 2.3 litre AO90s to Le Mans in 1930, coming third only to 6 ½ litre Speed 6 Bentleys in the 1931 Brooklands 500. They dominated the 3-litre class there. For 1931, Roesch increased the engine capacity to 2969cc and with a staggered valve layout, improved performance with better breathing. Combined with a lighter and lower chassis, the new model became the Talbot AV105. No less than four 105s were tuned to provide 119 bhp at 4800 rpm – and in Brooklands trim 125bhp was claimed with a 10:1 compression ratio.

The AV105 proved to be a brilliant rally car too. Coming from Switzerland, Roesch often tested cars in the Alps. In 1931 “The Motor’s” journalist Humphrey Symons entered the 1931 Coupe des Alpes, losing no marks. Indeed he won a “Coupe des Glaciers” – the highest award for a single car entry.

Four Fox and Nicholl 105s – the “GO” registered cars, GO 51, GO 52, GO 53 and GO 54 had some great successes in 1931 and 1932, achieving 1st, 2nd and 3rd in class in the Double Twelve of 1931 at Brooklands, 3rd overall at Le Mans and 1st unsupercharged car in 1931 and 1932. They came 1st and 2nd in class in the 1931 and 1932 TT.

For the Coupe des Alpes event of 1932, Warwick Wright funded a team of three Fox and Nicholl prepared Vanden Plas bodied AV105, as first shown at the 1931 Motor Show. They won the Coupe des Alpes outright. This win was repeated in 1934 with the team of BGH cars.

For 1933 Roesch introduced his own Wilson patented pre-selector gearbox, as fitted to the car we have for sale. The AV95 was a lower compression version of the AV105, introduced in 1932 with a production run to 1935

Altogether an astoundingly good record for the AV105. Enthusiast and other dealers continued to race these cars until the war.
