This car was restored in the 1990s by the respected specialist Bill Barrott of Sheffield who specialised
in cars produced by the STD group.
The mechanical specification is the same as the BGH team cars which achieved a great success in the 1934 Alpine Trial, the team of three cars winning an Alpine Cup and loosing no points in the process.
The coachwork is an accurate copy of that of original team cars so that the driving experience is the same. This means that the car is particularly suitable for long distance rallies such as the Flying Scotsman and the Alpine Trial or for long continental holidays.
This car is ready for immediate use and represents extremely good value at £135,000, which is much less than the present cost of rebuilding such a car from scratch.
An opportunity to acquire a replica of one of the famed 'BGH' 1934 Alpine Trial Winning Team Car Talbots. Much work has already been done.
Ideally suited to long distance rally events such as the Flying Scotsman and Alpine Trial, being designed with winning events like these in minds,
also well suited to vintage racing or simply continental touring.
Please call to learn more about this exciting opportunity.

Complete original rolling chassis fitted with a new sporting two seater body, based on the very successful sprint
and Hill climb cars used by the works between 1912 and 1914 and subsequently by Malcolm Campbell at Brooklands and
elsewhere between 1919 and 1922. This body style was offered in the 1914 Talbot brochure. The chassis has original
instruments, Bosch dual ignition system, a 36mm Zenith carburetter and a new inlet manifold to suit. It has CAV electric
headlamps and an original cast aluminium bulkhead.
Edwardian Talbots were high quality cars with an excellent reputation for reliability and performance and this project, when completed, will make a sporting Edwardian car comparable with a Prince Henry Vauxhall or an Alfonso Hispano Suiza.
The price of this project is £50,000, plus VAT, and we would be pleased to complete the project to your specification.
The following work has already been done:-
Chassis frame repaired as necessary, blasted and painted.
All new shackle pins and pivot pins.
New tubes, ball pins and sockets for three radius arm rear suspension.
Front and rear axles overhauled.
Brakes and brake linkages fully overhauled. This model had dual shoes in the rear drums and fully compensated linkages which means that they are a considerable improvement over previous Talbot designs and those of many of their contemporaries.
New Rudge Whitworth 90 long hubs complete with locking rings. These are exact copies of original hubs offered as an option by Clement Talbot.
New wheels and tyres.
A new high lift camshaft has been designed to provide the same increased lift used on the works cars and a camshaft of this type is included with this car.
Overhauled steering box and column.
New 17" steering wheel.
Re-cored radiator and New Fuel Tank
