Without doubt, the Talbot-Lago T23 Teardrop Coupés by Figoni et Falaschi represent the crowing achievement of French design and engineering during the . It is believed that just 16 Teardrops were built in total, along two slightly different body styles. The first car, in the “Jeancart” design after the name of its first owner, was a beautiful aerodynamic coupé with a long, streamlined rear. Only five such cars were built and, of those, just four remain today; this car, chassis 93064, was the sole Jeancart-style Teardrop originally built upon a four-litre, T23 “Baby” chassis. The other 11 Teardrop coupés were built in the “New York” style, named after the car exhibited at the 1937 New York Auto Salon. Except for one car on a T23 chassis, these “New York” cars were all based upon the shorter T150-C chassis.
