Hi there, here we have a Talbot Horizon 1.3 GLE with around 57,500 miles on the clock. This is the later model with the five speed gearbox and wing liners etc.
It has been our main form of transport for a couple of years and we have ensured that it has been well maintained and so reliable in every day use.
Spares supply has been easy through the Simca/Talbot club. In addition to normal service items, it has had new driveshafts, steering rack, track rod ends and top and bottom ball joints as well as a new exhaust.
Mileage is genuine with old MOT's to back it up. We bought the car from a lady who had inherited the car from her late father - he had owned the car for many years but did not do many miles in it. We fitted a few period options such as the correct optional headrests, centre console and glove box lid. Note though a four speaker CD player is fitted, it is currently not switching on! The laminated screen has clouding around the edges due to age - though this is not an issue for the MOT.
Bodily the car is very sound - especially for a Talbot - even the door bottoms are rust free. It does however have a crease in the nsr quarter panel by the bumper and a 1 inch ding in the leading edge of the roof. Note also that there are some small repairs and touch ins that do not have a very good paint match - this includes the paint on the bonnet.
I am happy to answer any questions - call me on 07771 591366.
Note that the car is advertised in the Club Simca UK magazine, so I keep the right to withdraw the car from the auction if required.
The winning bidder must pay cash on collection please.
