Clément Talbot was founded during 1903 and despite the
French-sounding name it was. in fact. an English company; the name
being taken from two of its directors. the Earl of Shrewsbury and
Talbot and the French car manufacturer. Adolph Clément. Initially
the company imported the popular French Clément cars into Britain. br/>although from 1905 Talbots were producing cars of their own design
in London. Edwardian Talbot cars soon gained an enviable record in
competition and a special bodied Talbot 25hp. driven by Percy
Lambert. was the first car to complete 100 miles in the hour. here
at Brooklands in 1913. Following the Great War. Talbot along with
Sunbeam. was acquired by the Darracq Company. creating the STD
combine. The chief designer at this time was Georges Roesch. a
gifted engineer who had joined the organisation in 1916 following a
spell at Daimler. Roesch's design philosophy of lightness and the
increase of output by means of higher rpm was vindicated with the
10/23 model announced in 1923. a development of the successful 8/18
light car. A model of high quality. it was powered by an OHV engine
of 1074cc and featured a plate clutch. in-unit three-speed gearbox
with central change. torque tube. spiral bevel back axle and
quarter-elliptic suspension. It was capable of brisk performance
for its size. with a top speed of some 55mph. allied to extremely
good fuel economy and was regarded as the outstanding light car of
its time.


This delightful. late example. was registered in Gloucestershire
on 6th January 1926 and carries the relatively rare factory
supplied four-seater tourer coachwork. Nothing is known of
its early history but it was acquired in the 1960s by Mr Marston
Webb of Gloucester and has remained in the ownership of his family
ever since. with Mr Webb's half brother. Mr Peter Fewster becoming
custodian of the Talbot in 1985. who in turn passed the car on to
his daughter in 2007.


Work carried out in recent years includes an engine rebuild. new
upholstery and a replacement hood and side screens. Also a new
exhaust system has been recently fitted. The engine is said to
start readily on the handle and was running eagerly at the time of
inspection. The Talbot has seen little use in recent years so some
light recommisioning is advisable; for example there is an electric
starter fitted which is not presently working. The Talbot comes
with a V5C registration certificate and represents a rare
opportunity to purchase a high quality vintage light car which will
bring a huge amount of enjoyment for a modest price and which is
eligible for the popular VSCC Light Car Section events.
