Footnotes


  • Formed in 1903 to import French Clément cars into the UK, the British-owned Clément-Talbot concern quickly dropped the Clément name and by 1905 was assembling partly British-made Talbots at its new factory in London. A wide variety of French-built models continued to be imported, but by 1906 the first all-British Talbot had arrived. Talbot merged with Sunbeam in 1919 and the following year combined with the French Darracq concern to form the Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq (STD) conglomeration. Confusingly, the products of the group's Suresnes factory were badged as Talbots in France and Darracq elsewhere, and the former should not be confused with the British-made Talbots designed by Georges Roesch.

    Offered here we have one of the French-built Talbots, the M67, which was part of a family of six-cylinder models of various capacities that had first been introduced in 1920 and would be produced up to the mid-1930s. The M67 was powered by a 2.0-litre overhead-valve engine, designed by ex-FIAT engineer Vincenzo Bertarione, which produced 38 horsepower and gave the M67 a top speed of around 60mph – a decent performance for a 2.0-litre car of the period. Coil ignition and a four-speed gearbox were advanced features for the time.

    This car was purchased from a French dealer as a restoration project and imported into the UK in 1997, though the restoration was put on hold for many years. Work began some ten years ago, the body being treated to a bare-metal repaint in 2008, the electrics being rewired in 2009, and the engine and transmission overhauled in 2010. The original brown velour upholstery was reinstalled after the repaint, and the interior completed with new carpets. All the nickel brightwork was re-plated. Little used since the restoration's completion in 2017, this rare Vintage-era French quality car is presented in commensurately good condition and comes with current MoT and a V5C registration document.
