*One of the best light cars of its day

The early history of 'XK 8147' is not known, but there is a list on file of nine owners from August 1951 onwards, commencing with the wonderfully named John Mollart Rogerson Rolyat of Hampshire. In 1956, Edward Wheeler carried out extensive work on the car, including fitting a Ford (Dellow) rear axle and converting the engine to improve its performance. In July 1988, Brian Waddington bought the Talbot from dealer Andrew Booth and took it to the Isle of Man with him a few years later.

The Talbot was purchased by the current vendor in May 1997, since when the engine and gearbox have been overhauled by Bill Barrott, and the radiator rebuilt. While in the present ownership, 'XK 8147' has been used for STD rallies, etc and in 2011 led the Talbot Owners' Club's cavalcade up Kop Hill in Buckinghamshire. Accompanying documentation includes a copy instruction manual and Book of the Talbot, and old style buff logbook, some early photographs of the car, and a V5 Registration Certificate.
