Sunbeam-Talbot[-Darracq] in a sense encapsulates the history of the automobile in Great Britain in the first four decades of the 20th century as domestic manufacturers teamed up with French designers to take advantage of the innovations and refinements flowing from France, then the leader in automobile design and performance. Over time, however, the British developed their own talents, but the names persisted. This right-hand drive 1939 Sunbeam-Talbot Alpine Sports Tourer is a fully-British design, with a two-liter four-cylinder engine and 4-seat coachwork that is both attractive and practical. This is a very pretty car finished in Red with a Black interior and top. In addition to its beautiful chrome radiator grille it has dual horns, a central driving light, steel wheels, wide whitewall tires, hubcaps, folding windshield, trafficator semaphore turn indicators, banjo spoke steering wheel and a luggage trunk. It is a very pretty car, rarely seen in the U.S and an attractive and welcome participant in tours and cruises, with good paint, solid chrome and sound upholstery and interior trim. An older restoration, it has further potential that can be realized with modest cosmetic attention and detailing.
