Classic Car Overview

1950 Talbo Lago T26 Record Cabriolet by AntemThe 1949 Paris Salon show carRare and desirable coachbuilt T26 cabriolet by AntemPost-war, independent coil-sprung chassis with superb handling and road manners4,482-cc inline six-cylinder with twin Zenith-Stromberg carburettorsChassis number 101001In October 1946, Talbot-Lago had a small stand behind Peugeot at the Paris Salon. The brand-new T26 Record model was shown. It was available in four body styles, including a lovely factory convertible. In 1934, Joseph Figoni had helped Anthony Lago design a line of factory bodies for Talbot-Lago. The post-war Record was the final evolution of these beautiful designs, tastefully updated by Carlo Delaisse, a well-known designer who had worked for the great coachbuilders Vanvooren and Letourneur et Marchand. Nevertheless, the Record chassis was also immediately made available to the trade.The chassis and drivetrain were new. Fully independent front suspension with coils ensured superior handling, while the trademark pre-selector Wilson gearbox was a joy to use in comparison to the cantankerous long-throw and slow-shifting boxes other cars were fitted with at the time. But the real jewel was the magnificent 4.5-litre six-cylinder twin-cam hemi engine that Anthony Lago had developed during the War with Carlo Marchetti, his chief engineer. Not only was it lovely to look at with its polished Art Deco valve covers, it also gave exceptional torque, and with its 170 hp, it made the Lago Record one of the most powerful passenger cars in the world. It was a grande routire in the classic manner and looked the part with its conservative, elegantly proportioned bodies and long, long hood in the 1939 idiom.After the War, Antem developed a number of tasteful semi-pontoon designs characterized by a back-sloping grille, front fenders that faded elegantly into the bodywork and rounded rear fenders that flowed harmoniously into the svelte rear deck. Usually, the front fender carried an air vent originally inspired by the Buick Ventiports that influenced many French coachbuilders in the late 1940s. The overall effect of these Antem bodies was a very smooth style that was sporting and refined at the same time, and variations were mounted on a number of Delahaye and Talbot chassis.The Motorcar Offered:This Talbot-Lago features all of the signature Antem design elements. Indeed, the car was shown on the Antem stand at the 1949 Paris Salon as a 1950 model. It has been in the same prestigious collection since 2008. The car presents beautifully. It has spectacular lines and fantastic paint. Its been recently serviced and runs and drives as it should. The Tobacco leather interior was replaced while in the current owners care and it presents beautifully. Chassis number 101001 is a historically significant automobile and provides a rare, unique opportunity to acquire a powerful grande routire with desirable cabriolet coachwork. An exciting, marque show car, this Talbot-Lago has been very well cared for and is ready for its next conservator. Enjoy it on a thrilling drive or as an award winner when showing at prestigious concours events.
