I think anything I say about this 1956 Talbot-Lago for sale on Hemmings.com might just be inadequate. Or possibly untoward. Either way, I’ll simply let the seller’s description take it away:
This Talbot Lago is a 1956 T14LS, chassis number 140019. The history, as we know it is as follows. In 1971 the car was imported into England and registered with OUG2 license plate, considered a cherished number. It was registered to a Simon Francis Phillips, from London SW7, around this time. That plate got removed and presumably placed on another of his cars and it became registered with PRK38K around 19th Feb 1976. The next registered owner was Mrs. Hilda Lewis, 47 Grosvenor Square, London W1A, a very posh and expensive part of London. The next owner was from here, John Heil. John bought the car in 1988 and imported it to the USA. John Vintage raced the car a little at some of the Palm Springs Vintage car races in that time period. At that time he had the car set up for that purpose, including a roll bar (removable) and competition seat belts and the obligatory catch and vent tanks for oil and water capture. The car remained in his and his family’s possession until we acquired the car from his estate recently. The car has a BMW V8 of the BMW 507 style with a 4-spd, the same as what went into the Talbot Lago America. This engine has been in it since prior to arriving in England in 1971, as the original English log book shows it as having this motor with engine number 21900, the same number as it has today. We have redone the interior completely and it is superb, finished in very nice leather and Wilton Wool style carpeting. We have redone the interior to what we believe is back to original style and standards. The paint is very good but is by all accounts about 20 years old. It is finished in French Blue with Black interior.
