Rare Talbot to go under the hammer

by  | 

A unique classic car is expected to attract many bidders when it goes under the hammer next month.

The 1932 Talbot 14/65 Boat Tail Tourer, which is the only one of its kind in the world, is likely to fetch between £20,000 and £30,000.

The vehicle will be put up for sale by Historics at Brooklands on December 4. The new owner will require decent car insurance cover for such a classic car.

The model underwent transformation during the 1960s, when a boat builder redesigned it by building a new stem-to-stem wooden body. It was originally created as a saloon.

The 1932 Talbot is hand-built using Honduran mahogany, with the interior flaunting black leather and some decorative styling.
