- Six-cylinder engine
- Prestigious brand
- No reserve
This sedan Talbot T11 Cadette is fairly well preserved and complete. The engine compartment houses a six-cylinder 11 HP OHV unit mated to a conventional manual box. A lubricating label from 1962 indicates that a service was carried out at 53,575 km and now the meter reads 53,742 km - obviously less than 200 km have been covered since then. The glove box cover carries a plaque of a former owner "M Menuel, Migennes, Yonne" and the dashboard is complete with all Jaeger instruments in good condition, including the large speedometer calibrated up to 160 km/h. Even if the Cadette was a "small" Talbot, compared to its larger displacement siblings, it was not a cheap Talbot and the finish was pretty neat, living up to the brand's reputation. Like other Talbots of that time, it was designed by Walter Becchia, Italian like Antony Lago, and who later worked with Citroën.
This interesting and relatively well preserved car still has its jack and handle, and reflects the expansion of the Talbot range, offering an opportunity to enjoy this prestigious brand name for a lower entry price than the high-end models.
