A world expert on French coachbuilt cars of the 1930s, historian and author Peter Larsen has long admired the unique Figoni & Falaschi-bodied 1948 Talbot Lago T26 Grand Sport that was built for zip manufacturer Mr Fayolle – ‘the Zipper King’.

Peter explains how the car came to sit for decades in storage in the USA, only to be finally returned to Europe and restored to concours-winning standards in the Czech Republic.
