After WW2, the company produced high-performance racing cars and for large luxurious passenger cars (with an extensive sharing of chassis and engine components between the two). The French automobile manufacturer used a race-proven 6 cylinder, 3 carburetor engine producing 170 hp to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual gear box. Suicide doors on the cabriolet are elegant and relatively rare.
1949 Talbot-Lago T26 Record Cabriolet received the name “Record” to commemorate a successful run of racing victories.
