Talbot Lago T26C

This was one of the cars entered in the Coys auction which took place during the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1994.
It's obviously a Talbot Lago, but apart from that I can't find any information about this particular car.
Early Talbot Lago sportscars were the T26C Grand Prix cars with a widened body to accommodate two seats, and were fitted with lights and simple motorcycle-style mudguards.
For the 1952 Le Mans 24 hour race, motorcycle-style mudguards were banned and cars had to have all-enveloping bodywork. Some of the T26C Talbot Lagos were rebodied in this style and this is perhaps one of those.
