1956 Sunbeam Talbot 90

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

Bought locally (NI) in 2011 from an individual who had driven it back from South England and then proceeded to dismantle it in his garage. His aim was apparently to alter this 1956 car into a 1952 model hence the trafficators and wheel spats. I bought the car more or less stripped out and with an abundance of spare parts (except for tail lights). Paintwork was showing its age although there wasn't much rust. I resprayed it in the same colours (blue/grey) and set about replacing head-lining, carpets, door linings and rechroming the bumpers/over riders. I sealed off the sunshine roof (source of leakage?).

I have not had the engine running but I was 'assured' that the engine had recently been reconditioned and a new radiator fitted. This is probably true as it had made the journey from South England to NI without mishap and there wasn't any oil around it. I have not inspected the breaks nor have I attempted to investigate the wiring on the dashboard. Also the lock is missing from the driver's door. Comes with an abundance of spares, mainly body parts. I would reckon that at least 90% of restoration work and expenditure has been carried our and this car would provide a most economic and attractive experience on the classic car/vintage circuit.

Finished in duo-tone grey over blue with original leather upholstery fitted usual column change. Factory metal sunroof, wheel trims etc. Simple to finish.

Please note excess spares are not included.
