Talbot Cars History

There's 1 TALBOT car service manual PDF.


In 1903, Gustave Adolphe Clement and the Earl of Shrewsbury-Talbot opened the Anglo-French venture Clement-Talbot.


They independently produced cars until the end of the WW1, until they sold the business to another Franco-British company - Darracq.


In 1920, the Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq (STD Motors) concern was formed, headed by the famous automotive designer Louis Cotalin.


Under his leadership, many race victories and speed records were achieved, but this required a lot of money and led STD Motors to bankruptcy in 1934.


Then his British branch became part of the Rootes Group and began selling cars under the Sunbeam-Talbot brand, and the French plant in Suresnes was bought by entrepreneur Anthony Lago, who renamed the brand to Talbot-Lago.


In the second half of the 30s. and in the early post-war years, Talbot-Lago cars became famous throughout the world for their race victories and awards in elegance competitions.


French bodybuilders created real masterpieces on the Talbot-Lago T150C and T26 GS chassis, but in the conditions of the post-war crisis, buyers for these excellent cars became less and less.


In 1958, Anthony Lago sold the plant to Simca and the Talbot-Lago brand ceased to exist.


After 20 years, the Talbot brand revived the Peugeot-Citroen (PSA) concern to get rid of the word "Chrysler" in the names of models inherited from Chrysler Europe.


These cars, developed in the 70s. firms Rootes Group, Simca and Matra, were produced until the mid-80s, until they were replaced by their own models of Peugeot and Citroen, and only then the Talbot brand was finally abandoned.
