1949 Talbot Lago T26 Grand Sport by Franay #110123

More info and recent pictures in silver.

Promotional text by RM Auctions:
-----
The T26 Grand Sport was never produced in large numbers, with some sources citing total production of only about 30 units. Of these, just eight examples, including the car offered here, were built with the short 2,650-millimetre chassis, the same length as the marque’s successful Grand Prix cars of the era. The 1949 T26 Grand Sport offered here is one of just three examples, including one roadster and two coupés, which were originally clothed with handsome bodywork by Franay of Paris. Furthermore, this Coupé is particularly rare as the sole Franay-built example that was originally fitted with a sunroof. Bearing chassis number 110123, the Grand Sport also retains its matching 4.5-litre six-cylinder engine.

Today, this stylish and powerful Grand Sport continues to benefit from a complete, concours-level restoration that was completed during the 1990s and followed by an appearance at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It was recently refinished in resplendent silver and remains in outstanding cosmetic condition with excellent brightwork, impressive 18-inch wire wheels, polished brake drums, rear spats and, of course, the rare steel sunroof beautifully styled to echo the split V windscreen. The elegant contrasting blue interior has remained very good in presentation, with the dash, door panels and supple leather upholstery, as well as the headliner, in near-perfect condition. The cockpit is quite roomy and includes an adjacent luggage shelf. The Grand Sport also provides impressive visibility and ventilation with its articulated front and rear windows, as well as the large sunroof. Of particular note, the detailing, metalwork and panel craftsmanship on this Franay-built car eclipse the work of many other coachbuilders of the era.

Only three cars were build by Franay on the Grand Sport chassis, and only one was convertible.
The two cars are the same #110121. Presented in white colour in 1949 at Paris Motor Show, Grand Palais. Later changed two times the grill, at last in winter of 1953, because it had an accident and it got an Ferrari 212 egg-crate style grill. In white colour shows the car at Enghien Concours with the original grille circa 1950. The black car is with the new egg-crate style grill, also in Enghien circa summer of 1953. It wears at recently, see 2012 Pebble Beach and 2013 Villa d'Este.
