Pennock Talbot Lago T26 Grand Sport 1951
Pennock Talbot Lago T26 Grand Sport 1951

Back in 1951, this Talbot Lago was delivered as a rolling chassis to the Pennock bodyworks in The Hague with the request to transform into an ultimate rally-vehicle. Coachbuilders Pennock were more than happy with its arrival, as sales had dropped drastically after the war.
Pennock were proud to display the 'Pennock-Lago' at the Amsterdam motor show of 1952. A Lago very different to the other 38 Grand Sports built. Perhaps not so elegant as the ones that were bodied by the factory, let alone compared to a flamboyant one-off by Saoutchik or even Graber, but this had a reason, as this car was purpose built. Not a showcar, but a rally-contender, made to measure for a rich rally-enthusiast.

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.
