What's a car between Chevy and this odd truck?

Whats that doing there? :)

Looks very like British Sunbeam-Talbot.

This is a picture of a 1949 Sunbeam-Talbot 80/90 convertible. Sedan/saloon would have been more common.

As it was part of the Rootes Group there could possibly be a Singer version as well, but I don't remember it.

Some more information here...an Australian website.


Looking at the height of the headlamps it appears to be MkI from 1948-1950, later cars would have been noticably higher. Also the cars roof is just visible - same colour as the front so almost certainly a 4-door sedan/saloon. Well worth listing I think. There is another Sunbeam-Talbot 90 listed on IMCDb but this picture is better despite it being in the background.

White panel van in background looks like an XR-XT Falcon.
