The Talbot Horizon Pullman

Talbot Horizon Pullman Limited Edition

The Horizon Pullman has been developed from the highly successful GL 1.5. It is an ideal car for the discerning motorist who wants exterior style and distinction and the luxury of travelling in 'Pullman' comfort.

Power steering forms an important part of the Pullman's specification - the first time this feature has been offered on a petrol engined Horizon. The powertrain consists of the well-proven powerful 1442cc 82 DIN bhp engine matched to a new 5-speed gearbox.

There is a choice of two duo-tone metallic colour schemes: Jamaica Brown and Sable with Mink trim or Ming Blue and Cascade Blue with Grey trim. Both colour schemes have matching pin-stripe body side tapes.

To enhance this model even further we have added 5J x 13 'Amil 2' alloy road wheels fitted with 175x70 tyres, a front air dam and a bright Pullman badge.

The interior is equally distinctive. The reclining front seats and head restraints are fully trimmed in luxurious velour and the door trim pads have velour inserts. A polished wood veneer capping runs the full width on the lower facia rail and this is complemented by a polished wooden knob on the gear lever.

A digital rev. counter is one of five instruments which are all very readable through the steering wheel. For added convenience there is central door locking, an analogue clock, a map reading lamp, and a load area lamp. And to make your 'Pullman' travel even more enjoyable we have included a push button radio/stereo cassette with a four speaker system and front/rear balance control.

The tailgate lifts automatically and provides access to 11 cu. ft. of luggage space, fold the rear seat down and there's 42 cu. ft. available with full estate car versatility.

To cap it all, the Pullman gives a remarkable 47.1 mpg at a constant 56 mph - which goes to show that a car combining performance, luxury and distinction need not be expensive to run.
