Sunbeam-Talbot Ten


The Sunbeam-Talbot 10 was an updated version of the earlier Talbot 10, which in turn was an updated Hillman Aero Minx. It used the Minx chassis with half elliptic leaf springs front and rear and 1185cc alloy headed side valve four cylinder engine. A four speed gearbox was fitted with synchromesh on second, third and fourth.

The engine produced 38bhp @ 4500rpm as originally launched. Improvements for the post-war models saw this increased to 41bhp.

Saloon, tourer and drophead coupe body styles were available. Carbodies were responsible for the coupe bodywork, while the tourer was the work of Whittingham and Mitchell. 10973 Talbot and Sunbeam-Talbot 10s were built.
