1980 LOTUS SUNBEAM TALBOT
Offered for sale is a 2.2L 1981 Talbot Lotus Sunbeam manual that has been with the current owner for the last 2 years. Coming with an extensive history file, this lot's condition scores an impressive 107 / 135.
Classic Car Auctions says:This particular car is a series 1 model that was first registered in January 1981 and comes in the classic colour scheme of Embassy black with silver strips. The car has been treated to some restoration, with many invoices on file. Much of this work was carried out by marque specialist, Simon Robinson of Darlington. This included a rebuilt gearbox and engine, the latter receiving a new set of pistons, and now putting out a respectable 148 Bhp as a Skip Brown dyno sheet confirms.
Uprated front disc brakes with four-pot calipers have also been fitted, together with coil-over front suspension for enhanced road holding. Since the restoration was completed the car has only covered some 3,000 road miles.
Supplied with all its original handbooks, new MOT and a large history file, including many old M.O.T.'s back to 1988, (at 44,700 miles which has now risen to some 68,799 miles).
