Talbot lago T26 Record Surprofilé 1952 Restoration
This fantastic 1952 Talbot lago T26 Record Surprofilé is being fully restored and overhauled by Classic Job. This photo report started after the chassis was already restored and rebuilt. You can see the very original bodywork on the restored chassis. (Only some parts of sheet metal and some parts of the wood frame had to be renewed). The bodywork was smoothened and primed. The car is now ready for the final paint. The engine and the gearbox were fully overhauled, and are ready to be mounted back into the chassis.
To be continued.
