Barrett-Jackson Countdown: 1939 Talbot-Lago

This is the 11th vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.

Talbot-Lago is considered among the greatest of all European pre-war automobile manufacturers. Built outside of Paris, the company was founded in 1896 by Alexandre Darracq, with the name “Talbot” originating from the family that bought the company from Darracq. Following Talbot’s success at Le Mans, Indianapolis and the French Grand Prix, the company’s 4.0-liter engine emerged victorious. Barrett-Jackson Countdown: 1939 Talbot-Lago | ClassicCars.com Journal

The Talbot club reports fewer than a dozen examples of these cleverly transformable T-23 series 4.0-liter Cabriolets remain in existence today.

This car was purchased from a long-term owners in 1971. Recently, Swiss marque experts performed a comprehensive restoration. During restoration, all trim, formed in chrome-plated brass, was refinished to show condition. All mechanical systems were restored as needed, including a newly rebuilt transmission. The body and paint were refined and refinished, with the interior restored to include a new top, headliner and carpeting. Barrett-Jackson Countdown: 1939 Talbot-Lago | ClassicCars.com Journal
