Talbot Van Insurance
Talbot, originally a name used to sell rebranded French cars (Clement-Bayard), started selling cars under the name Talbot in 1905. In WWI, the company manufactured ambulances, and afterwards, the British and French partners operated very separately until just after the war when the whole company was taken over by Darracq.
The Talbot 105, built by then-chief engineer Georges Roesch, was one of the first successful Talbot Models, but by no means was the only one. 1935 saw the renamed Talbot Group STD taken over by the Rootes Group, although in 1938 the Sunbeam and Talbot names were combined to create Sunbeam-Talbot. In 1967 the group was taken over by American giant Chrysler.
Towards the end of the 1970s, with Chrysler Europe being the new property of Peugeot, the Talbot name once again adorned certain automobiles. Peugeot influenced the creation of the Talbot Samba, a three door hatchback heavily influenced by Peugeots own 104. Other Talbots produced in/around this time were the Horizon, the Minx, and the Rapier. The Talbot Express a van was produced until 1992.
The Talbot Express van was the last Talbot motor vehicle to be sold. Produced as part of the Sevel Sur joint venture between PSA Peugeot Citron and Fiat, the Talbot Express Van was made in Italy alongside the Fiat Ducato, Peugeot J5 and Citron C25. Production began in 1986 when the Talbot badge was withdrawn from passenger cars, and continued until 1992 when Peugeot finally discarded the Talbot marque.
