Introduced in June 1948, the Sunbeam-Talbot 80 was Rootes’ first new post-war design and the first Rootes car to be fitted with an overhead valve engine. Utilising an OHV version of Minx 1185cc engine (producing 47bhp), the separate chassis was derived from the 2-Litre and featured beam front axle and semi-elliptic springs. The ‘Streamstyle’ full-width body featured enclosed headlights, enclosed door hinges, ‘Opticurve’ curved windscreen and teardrop-shaped rear wheel spats. The four-speed gearbox was operated by fashionable ‘Synchromatic’ column gear change. The 80 was available as a four-door Sports Saloon and two-door Sports Convertible Coupe. Production ceased in 1950 after approximately 3500 had been built.

This Sunbeam-Talbot 80 Saloon was manufactured in 1950 (the final production year) and was supplied new to the home market. Powered by the aforementioned 1185cc four-cylinder engine mated to the four-speed column change transmission. Finished in the attractive colour combination of Green with Brown leather interior trim upholstery. Entering into current ownership in 2009, the Sunbeam-Talbot is now offered from a deceased estate.

An older restoration, ‘AXG 992’ has come from a period of dry-storage following the passing of the vendor (approximately six months previous) and while is running, may require some light recommissioning. Offered with a history file including an owners handbook, large quantity of restoration images and V5C document.
