Talbot - Talbot Lago T26

The Talbot-Lago T26 was the post war six cylinder 4.5 litre model, that fell in the 26 CV tax rating. The "Record" was the long chassis 4 door version that produced some 170hp, with an optional preselector gearbox. The T26 Grand Sport (or GS) was the short chassis version with engine tuned up to 195bhp using higher 9.5:1 compression and 3 carburettors. The Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport was usually supplied in chassis form for bodywork at the clients choice of coachbuilder, but the company itself had a good looking standard body for this chassis also. For a post war scenario, the large engine capacity put the Talbot-Lago in a high horsepower tax band, which hampered sales in France.

Tyre size for Talbot-Lago T26:

- Original tyre size for the Talbot-Lago T26 between 1948 and 1955 was 6.00x18, for which Blockley makes the perfect 600/650x18 tyre. On a few occasions the Grand Sport is quoted as 5.50x18, and Blockley produces this slightly smaller size also. Nothing you can buy is as good as these tyres we produce! You are welcome to contact Blockley for advice. Our own T26 GS is fitted with the 6.00/6.50x18 size. See full details of these tyre sizes below:
