Description

After a dull and dreary winter, some of the classics are coming out to play.

We acquired this interesting and quirky 1954 Talbot Sunbeam 90 DHC from a lovely lady from down South Island who was dealing with her Father's Estate. We believe it to be a MK IIA.

The Talbot Sunbeam was the most complete of a small collection of cars, and we now have her running and moving thanks to our very own Car Magicians (thanks Brian and Doug).

We are moving three of the classics from this little collection, including this Talbot Sunbeam with a view to getting two other cars from this collection running and driving, which is going to take some time, expertise and funds, and we do seem to be lacking all three.

We don't have a great deal of information about this specific car. The previous owner was a marque enthusiast. We have the 2,2 liter four cylinder running, and she now starts readily, and runs. Horn works, lights work, trafficators work It has the collumn mounted transmission, and grabs perhaps two of the gears and does not grab reverse. It could be as simple as adjusting the linkages.

The vinyl seats were recent, but we don't have a date. The seats are springy and comfortable, and the arm rests, door cards and handbrake boot all match.

The dashboard looks good, and as an added bonus, the horn works. The roof frame is recessed behind the rear seats but there is no fabric, so it will need a new roof or convertible top. There is also bondo evident on the car, but she's a solid old bean and whether a sypathetic go over to make her a cool driver, or something more in depth as they can fetch quite a song when fully restored.

The wheels and hubcaps look great, and we have the key to access the second trunk or boot where the spare wheel is located.

We always have a selection of older cars in stock, so Follow Us on Facebook, visit our website, call Adam or better still, pop in and say hello.

It's difficult to put a valuation on the car, so we had a look at the market place online, plus Hagerty and came up with the figure at the top of the advert. It would be really good if this went to someone who would take the time to return her to her former glory, as these cars are getting increasingly rarer from a time that is close to being forgotten in the car world as us old buggers become rarer, too.

If you're unfamiliar with the marque, we encourage you to do some sleuthing as these Sunbeam Talbots are definitely a worthwhile cause.

We are currently trying to formulate a plan for 3 Sunbeam Alpine Series 1 Roadsters that we would like to restore, or have restored.

As mentioned, chat to us on Facebook (search for Eddbarry Motors).

You'll need to make an appointment to view, as she's not at our yard, and you'll need a trailer to take her away. We can also work with shippers and transport companies if her destination is further away.
