Sunbeam-Talbot was a manufacturer with a short lifespan, created after Rootes's acquisition of both Sunbeam and Talbot in the 1930s. The Sunbeam-Talbot 3-Litre would, in fact, be one of the last cars to bear the illustrious Sunbeam-Talbot name, however the new model certainly lived up to the reputation of the company for well-engineered and high-quality motor cars. Launched at the 1937 Olympia Motor Show, the new model impressed, thanks to its 3,181 cc engine with alloy cylinder heads, providing excellent performance even from low speeds, and its four-speed synchromesh gearbox.

Only 11 sport tourer-bodied examples were ever completed, and only two are known to survive today. Chassis 8577 was bodied as a tourer by well-renowned coachbuilders Whittingham & Mitchel of Putney and delivered new to Rootes Export Division on 29 July 1938, indicating that it is possible that the car was delivered new to Portugal. Today this car is a rare survivor of immediate pre-war British car production and is eminently usable today, thanks to the quality of the original design.
