Talbot-Lago 1950 T26 Grand Sport Cabriolet Saoutchik by Ilario in 1:43 scale
Saoutchik bodied two Talbot-Lago T26 convertibles, both modeled by Ilario. Serial number 110120 is more subdued in in its chrome wings, less flamboyant in its color than 110110. Please compare. It’s really a question of taste.
One of the immediate post-war cars that received notoriety for its speed was the Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport. It was built for either racing or luxury and benefited directly from Talbot’s successful T26 Course Grand Prix car. It was expensive and hard to come by.
All Talbots of the period used a body-on-frame design and had a strong enough chassis to receive a body from wherever the customer chose. Thus, no two cars were alike in the series of 36, and some became the most beautiful expressions of automotive art. Many of the great pre-war design houses like Saoutchik and Figoni & Falaschi were still around to body the T26 in their own magnificent way.
