Re : --38b and 101 Sunbeam Talbot Sports Coupe (1940-55)

The wonderful example above represents the (final) export version, not only for the USA but also for the Dutch market. Two catalogue details below, the Dutch one of 1953 showing the old number only, but the 1954/55 USA past the renumbering stage of 1954 and shows both 38b and 101 numbers.

Added two 'regular' examples of the earlier post-war years, featuring the familiar black hubs. The yellow finished one had the tan tonneau cover in that era. Kind regards, Jan

Re : --38b and 101 Sunbeam Talbot Sports Coupe (1940-55)

Jan---I don't remembering seeing that pale blue one before. The yellow one above is from me, but somehow the post is under Jacques name. I have noticed that several old posts of mine are now under his name....that all happened when the new site was launched.
I was always, and still am amazed at how pristine that yellow Sunbeam Talbot has remained, as it was never in its own box, and I have owned it for for over 57 years now. A somewhat rare totally mint Dinky in my collection for sure.
Best regards, Terry
