The Talbot Express was the last vehicle produced by the conglomerate. The result of a joint venture between Peugeot, Citroën and Fiat, the Talbot Express was built in Italy alongside the Ducato. The engine is transversely mounted petrol unit from a Peugeot 504 whilst the diesel unit is from a Citroën CX, both varieties utilise the Citroën gearbox. In 1991, the Talbot Express Series II was launched although Peugeot finally discontinued the Talbot name in 1992. The Express was a popular vehicle to be used for campervan conversions.
Originally supplied by Roe Moor Garages in Eccleston, Lancashire, this Talbot Express campervan has only covered 48,356 miles from new and is a very well appointed example. The white coachwork is in good order and shows no sign of corrosion and the grey interior is commensurate with such a low mileage example, the front seats are reversible ‘captain’ style. This fixed-roof, four berth campervan is fitted with double glazing and blinds. There is a wc and shower as well as heating with amenities including a cooker, sink, three-way fridge and a wardrobe. We are advised this Talbot drives well with no known faults; the gearbox and alternator have recently been replaced. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a history folder and a current MoT test certificate; with summer just around the corner this is an ideal vehicle for a trip to the coast or the myriad of festivals now available.
