(IAN POLSON LLP)
VINTAGE & PVT RESTORATION AND SALES
WE SPECIALISE IN ROESCH TALBOTS
I.S. Polson was established in 1978 as specialist restorers of Roesch Talbots.
Ian Polson, the founder, a professional engineer with a background with major companies in the motor industry, had been involved in old cars as a hobby for many years and his training and experience caused him to recognise the Roesch designed Talbot of 1926 & 1937 as outstanding examples of automotive design and engineering.
In 1978 he decided to turn his long standing hobby, old cars, into a business and the firm I.S. POLSON was founded with Ian and Pam Polson as partners. Initially the firm specialised in Roesch Talbots and Delahayes, as at the time Ian owned the Delahaye 135 SC which had finished 2nd in the 1936 French Grand Prix and had won the 1949 Australian Grand Prix.
More recently the focus has shifted almost entirely to Roesch Talbot, a major reason for this being our project to recreate the aluminium talbot 105 engine, an original example of which Ian has owned since 1966. Examples of these new engines have been running in national and international historic races since 2006, and in nearly 10 seasons of racing no problems have been experienced.
I.S. Polson have full restoration facilities including a comprehensive machine shop, facilities for white metalling and line boring, full sheet metal and welding facilities and a paint shop which has turned out cars which have been successful at major concours. We overhaul complete cars from scratch and can rebuild major units such as engines gearboxes, axles etc. All rebuilt engines are dynamometer tested in house.
We have a large selection of new and secondhand spares and undertake routine maintenance and servicing.
We have sold many Talbot cars and also undertake insurance valuations.
In January 2018 I S Polson changed legal status to Ian Polson LLP with John Polson, Ian and Pam’s son, joining the new
partnership at that time. John also set up a new business called Polson Motor
Company Limited, specialising in the sale of sports, competition and touring cars of the highest quality.
Ian Polson LLP and Polson Motor Company Limited share the same purpose-built 2000 square foot showroom in rural Suffolk, which now offers the unique opportunity for buyers, sellers, enthusiasts of restoration projects and servicing of cars all on one site.
