Hi Everyone;

Would anyone know where to bring a Talbot-Matra Bagheera to a good repair shop in London?

The car has been sat outside not running for a few years and is in a bit of a state; I nevertheless do not want to scrap it nor sell it for £100.

Right-front wheel is blocked; petrol has been sat inside the tank for a few years; painting is peeling and battery is dead. That is what I know so far but obviously there will be other problems.

I'm looking for someone to have a look at it and bring it back slowly to a reasonable state. I am not looking to spend mega money on it either. Just bring it back to a functionable state is my idea.


The car would have to be transported by trailer or so as not moving at the moment.


If you know anyone good let me know


Many thanks

This is the state of my bagheera after a 2 year still going on restauration,and my car was in use till the very end (30 years),the bagheera  you describe will be full of unpleasant surprises after been let out in the open,bringing yours back to a functional state could be a nightmare.

Oh dear

This is going to cost me more than the car itself.
