Top of the range in the Talbot catalogue for 1936 was the 3 1/2 litre Talbot 110, a model introduced in September 1934, powered by Talbot’s familiar pushrod, overhead valve engine, driving through a four-speed pre-selector gearbox and with distinctive half-cantilever rear suspension. This top of the range model featured such luxuries as driver-controlled hydraulic shock absorbers, adjustable steering column, centralised chassis lubrication and D.W.S. permanent jacks.
This rare survivor is one of only 89 BG110 models built and is thought to be one of only two survivors with factory Speed Saloon coachwork. The chassis was assembled in October 1936, passing to the coachbuilding department in March 1937 and delivered as a complete entity in April to its first owner, Col. D’Esterre of Bournemouth. He was to specify the present colour scheme of beige and black, the regimental colours of the East Lancashires who he commanded in the Great War. In 1939 he sold the car and in post-war years the car was to remain with one family, the Perrimans of Woking, for some thirty years. It has had just two subsequent owners, the present owner acquiring the car some fifteen years ago. Service records with the car covering the last sixty years confirm the indicated mileage of 112,000 to be correct. During the present ownership the car has been subject of a three-year body and mechanical restoration carried out by Talbot specialist, Ian Polson. The car has subsequently been maintained by another Talbot specialist, Arthur Archer of Great Dunmow, and has been regularly but meticulously used and maintained, taking part in the New Zealand Rally as recently as February 2002.
Condition in all departments is described as A1. The car retains its original beige and black colour scheme and is upholstered in red leather. It comes with a Swansea V5 registration document, old style log book, service records, current MoT to January 2004 and road fund licence.
