LOT #5019 1947 Talbot Lago T-26 - Grand Sport
This Talbot Lago T26 Grand Sport has a 2-seat coupe coachwork by Franay on a short chassis. It is believed that only three Grand Sports had Franay coachwork.
There were approximately 30 Grand Sports built but only eight with the short chassis, the same as used on the Grand Prix cars. the engine in this car is a 4.5 liter with three carburetors.
The car was originally sold in Geneva, Switzerland, likely the only place that could afford such a car as World War II had just concluded. Chassis 110113 was found in Tennessee in 1988 and was in very original condition. a complete restoration was performed in 2004. Finished in its original black paint, red leather interior with black piping and is completely original with all its original body panels, engine and chassis.
