Are you a fanatic of classic British touring cars, old bean? Need something unique to add to your collection, old boy? Then stroll to MotoeXotica Classic Cars and take a recky at this 1929 Talbot Type AG 14/45 Darracq-bodied Tourer. We recently acquired this handsome stead from our good friend Richard Rawlings of Gas Monkey Garage.
The Sunbeam Talbot Darracq Register records report that this car was ordered on February 19, 1929 from Talbot's North Kensington, London factory and sold to Maude's Motor Mart of Exeter, United Kingdom the following day and was delivered on February 27, 1929. A thorough and detailed restoration that took more than 25 years to complete put this vehicle back in the road in 1996. The original Cornwall registration, RL 9317, remains with the car.
This car is an excellent example of a right-hand drive British touring car. Finished in deep blue with black wings and a black hood, the paint and nickel trim are in overall very good condition, with a light patina and some minor blemishes visible on close inspection and an area that appears to have been touched up. Period correct accessories include directional signal arrows atop the rear number plate; a fishtail exhaust and leather-gaithered springs have been added. There is also a full-size, side-mounted spare tire
The car's windshield and rear windows are in very good order, however the driver's windshield wiper is inoperable. The car's lights, including its cowl lights, are clear and haze-free. This Talbot has fantastic-looking deep blue wire wheels residing within Excelsior Puma bias-ply tires. The car's bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is tidy and there is a 20-liter fuel tank strapped to the passenger side runningboard.
Under the bonnet is a 1.6L OHV straight six-cylinder was lightweight but thanks to strong internal parts, it revved to an amazing 4,500 rpm (Remember, this car is nearly 90 years old) and cranked out 41 horsepower. Mated to the engine is a four-speed manual transmission, which is lubricated with warm engine oil. Underneath are a solid front axle with semi-elliptical leaf springs and a live rear axle with quarter-elliptical leaf springs and four-wheel mechanical brakes.
The full-folding cloth top is in good order and raises and lowers easily, along with the removable side curtains. When the driver wishes some top-down alone time in his machine, there is a full-length tonneau cover with zippered access.
The cabin is sparse yet well appointed. The dark blue leather seats have been recently refurbished. The black carpet is in good order while the wood instrument panel is sprinkled with period gauges from Smiths and Jaeger and looks very good. The four-spoke steering wheel is in excellent shape while the inner door panels, mirror glass and shift lever are all in good shape.
One of Henri Roesch's earliest designs after previous stints with GrÃ©goire, Delaunay Belleville, Renault and Daimler, Roesch's 14/45 model was aimed at Rolls Royce, the era's benchmark. It proved popular, with more than 11,000 copies built from 1926 to 1932.
Documentation includes copies of owner's manual pages, a pair of sales brochures with prices listed in English pounds.
