1938 Sunbeam Talbot Supreme Convertible - Online Auction For Sale by Auction


— View the entire auction on - details above —

Sunbeam-Talbot Limited was a British car manufacturer. From 1938 to 1954 it built stylish cars in various versions under the management of the Rootes Group. Its predecessor, Clément-Talbot Limited, had manufactured Talbot cars from 1902 to 1935. Clément-Talbot was purchased by the Rootes brothers in January 1935 and reorganized to produce Rootes Group cars under the Talbot brand. In 1938, after a few years of consideration, the Rootes brothers dropped plans to build large luxury cars under the Sunbeam brand, adding the name Sunbot to Talbot and placing the additional name on both the cars built at Kensal Green and the company they built. After the Second World War, Sunbeam-Talbot production resumed in London and in the spring of 1946 was moved to the new Rootes factory in Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Warwickshire, and the Clément-Talbot factory in North Kensington became an administration and Rootes service center. The Sunbeam Talbot offered here is the DHC version of the 80 or 90. At the time of writing it was not clear which version it was. The 80 and 90 were introduced in July 1948 to replace the 10 and 2 liters respectively. The 80 was powered by a 1185 cc four-cylinder head-valve engine derived from the Ten's engine and developed 47 hp at 4800 rpm. The 90 had a 1944 cc head-valve engine, derived from the 2-liter power source, which developed 64 hp at 4100 rpm. The chassis was based on that of the 2-liter. There were body variants of a sedan and a drophead Coupé. The body of the sedan was made by British Light Steel Pressings, while the Coupé was finished and trimmed by Thrupp & Mobly. The 80 lasted only until 1950. When the MK II model was introduced, only the 90 continued. 3500 80's and 4000 MK I 90's were built, whichever version it is today makes a rare appearance.

The cars on offer are part of a static collection that has been accumulated over the last 40 years. They are mainly in an unrestored, original but dusty condition. We have not tried to start any of the cars. We have been informed that the engines have been turned, on a regular basis, but the exact condition of the cars and the engines is unknown to us.

You can inspect the cars on the viewing days for which you have to make a reservation through our ticketshop - - details above.
