Vanden Plas built this new bodystyle onto the three Works Roesch Talbot 105s that were built for the 1932 Alpine Trial. These Works team cars were the only ones to have doors hinged at the leading edge:

This body style was adopted as an official factory style for 1933 on both 90 and 105 chassis. The doors were now hinged on the trailing edge, and the bodies incorporated a hinged boot lid. The body style was given the title of Alpine Tourer:

This body style was uniquely built onto one Talbot 65 chassis, but with the deletion of the hinged boot; instead the rear seats were arranged to fold over into the boot space revealing a fully-carpeted rear compartment for luggage:

For 1934, the body style was modified with a wider body and wings with valences:

For the 1934 season Vanden Plas introduced a variation on this body style, which Talbot marketed as the Coupes des Alpes. The obvious difference is in the wing treatment, but note also the different door design: full depth, and, although not visible in this view, a different line to the top of the door:

GH 8854 was a bit of a mongrel! The Talbot 90 had a 9' 3"chassis fitted with a heart-shaped petrol tank at the rear. GH 8854 was, in fact, built on the 10' '0" chassis of the Talbot 75 and fitted with the square petrol tank of that model. The engine was uprated to 90 specification, and the car was marketed to the unsuspecting public as a 'long-chassis 90', a model which never existed in the Talbot catalogue...
