Lot #1383 - This is one of three Talbot-Lago T-26 Cabriolets built by the famous Carrosserie Worblaufen of Switzerland. Worblaufen was one of the most important Swiss coachbuilders for passenger cars. It produced many elegant cabriolets and roadsters on prewar Isotta-Fraschini, Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo and Bugatti chassis. After World War II, they worked on Talbot-Lago, Delahaye, Bentley and Lancia. The sporty chassis of the Talbot-Lago T26 was a favorite of European coachbuilders. The T-26 Cabriolet has a 4.5-liter, 6-cylinder engine and a Wilson pre-selector gearbox that was used in both Talbot race and road cars. During its restoration, communication with descendants of the coachbuilder, Ramseier & Co. of Worblaufen, provided an interesting insight on the history of the company. This car is being offered for sale for the first time in 24 years.
