Talbot or Clément-Talbot Limited was an English-French automobile manufacturer founded in 1903. Clément-Talbot's products were named just Talbot from shortly after introduction, but the business remained Clément-Talbot Limited until 1938 when it was renamed Sunbeam-Talbot Limited. The founders, Charles Chetwynd-Talbot, 20th Earl of Shrewsbury and Adolphe Clément-Bayard, reduced their financial interests in their Clément-Talbot business during the First World War.

This well presented example has been in continuous use throughout its life and is offered in good order throughout. The Darracq coachbuilt body is in good condition and the six-cylinder, overhead camshaft, 2.3 litre Talbot engine is in good working order, as is the four-speed pre-select gearbox with centrifugal clutch. The interior is largely original apart from the front seat cushions which have been re-covered at some stage during its life, all in all showing a nice patina. Fitted with a remote modern oil filter and offered with a sizeable history file which includes many club magazines, technical drawings, invoices for work done over the years, workshop manual instructions, sundry invoices, and an old original-style logbook dating back to 1947. This fine 30’s tourer is ready to go and represents fantastic value for money in comparison to similar models of its era.
