Almost all the Talbot T26 Grand Sports received a custom coachwork by independant coachbuilders, such as this one by Dubos. The black car in this gallery (#110102) is built on a shortened chassis. Two of these Coupes were made and the first one appeared in white at the 1948 Paris Auto Salon (first picture). The two cars are different in various details.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
