1912 TALBOT TYPE 4M sold
This lovely Talbot London 15hp was originally shipped to Australia and resided there until 2000. During that time it suffered a small accident at the hands of its 75 year old owner and languished in a shed until 1967 when it was found to be in very good mechanical condition – having travelled only around 4,000 miles – and restored with a new body frame and later style pistons (to improve performance).
The car has a powerful 3.5 litre four-cylinder twin plug engine mated to a four speed plus reverse gearbox. The engine is fitted with an electric starter and runs very smoothly and quietly. It is sufficiently powerful to enable the car to keep up with modern traffic and provide an exhilarating drive!
The body, brasswork, interior and weather equipment are all in excellent condition and the car has been regularly maintained by ourselves during the current enthusiastic owner’s 10 year tenure.
A superb, collectable and very usable Edwardian tourer with plenty of space and power.
Viewings welcomed by appointment only please.
