HOW TO DISTINGUISH A TALBO FROM A TALBOT

We are great admirers of the original Talbot, but our goal is to incorporate modern comfort and performance into a beautiful car. There are many ways to tell the difference between our Talbo and the Talbot:

  • The Talbo has a beautifully curved front bumper which follows the curves of the front fender, while the Talbot had straight bumpers.

  • The distinctive Talbo badge is very different from the Talbot badge.

  •  The Talbo’s headlights are tucked behind the two grills on either side of the radiator grill, creating a distinctive elegance from the front. This is because the Series 1 and 2 have pop up headlights for better visibility and legal requirements. The Talbot’s headlights were visible through the grills, and had the yellow tint common to French cars of that era.

  • No series 1 or series 2 Talbos had fog lights, while some of the Talbots did. 

  • The windshield wipers on the Talbo are set in opposite directions when parked and move toward the center when wiping, which allows better visibility when not in use. The Talbot had wipers that parked and moved in the same direction.

  • In profile, some Talbos had round side turn signals while others didn't. the Talbots had trafficators, turn signals that popped up.

  • The series 1 and 2 Talbos have 5 chrome lug nuts while the original Talbots had knock off wheels with a single spinner nut.
