Sunbeam Talbot Darracq Register

Some miscellaneous period pictures

"The most improved cars of 1922"

This is the considered judgement of those who have tried the present type of 16/40 h.p. and 24/60 h.p. Models. And is largely due to the entirely new OVERHEAD VALVE ENGINES with which these Cars are now fitted.

The photograph above shows a Sunbeam 24/60 Light Touring Model in front of the palace in Kapurthala, India, a small, but very well run, native princely state within Punjab Province.   A 16hp Sunbeam may be seen in the background.

 A 1922 Sunbeam 24/60. .

This model is essentially the same as the 24hp from 1921, shown near the top of this page, but has the new overhead valve version of the 4½ litre six cylinder engine. Note this model still retained rear wheel brakes only. 4 wheel brakes were offered as an option from 1923 and as standard from 1924.
