The new T26 Record was the world's most powerful production car when it was launched in 1946, with a 4.5-liter engine derived from the company's robust Grand Prix power unit.
The name "Record" was a tribute to Talbot Lago's superb year in Grand Prix Racing, winning four out of five races.
This Talbot Lago T26 Record (#101003) was built as a one-off in 1949 for the Marie Brizzard Liqueur Company in Paris. The car was delivered to Dubos as a bare chassis with chrome wire wheels.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
