Discussion in 'Classic Cars' started by trokc, Aug 24, 2006.

  1. One of a kind 1951 Talbot T26 GS.
    The chassis (110057) is from a 1951 GS that was in Le Mans that year but didn't run.
    The aluminium body was done by Motto, Torino.
    The engine is the Talbot in line 6 cylinders 4.5 L with three Zenith 50 carburators.It delivers + 250 horses.
    Maximum speed is certainly 270 km/h...

    I have some infos about the history of this car but I need more (like originals pictures...).
    So if anyone has some, share them <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  2. Some pictures from the web...
    The original car (number 6) at Le Mans before the body by Motto.
    The car with number 42 for the Reims Course Sport in 1952 with Chaboud.
    Louis Rosier with the car (number 64).
    Rosier and Trintignant drove it in 1952 at Monaco.
    Rosier sold the car to Georges Grignard.
    In 1954,the crash that destroyed the car and killed the pilote,Guy Mairesse at Monthlery, during the practice of The Coupe de Paris <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
    I don't know who rebuild the car after and the story is not very clear for me from that point(I know the car was in Belgium for a long time before I saw it last week)
     
  3. trokc, are you sure about ID?
    The car very similar to the subject was sold by Coys auction in 2002, but it has s/n 102001
     
  4. I'm sure about the serial...I think it's a mistake from a site, some others give the right number for this auction.
