1948 Delahaye 135M. Very Rare Three Position Drophead Coupé. Coachwork by Pennock. Original Right Hand Drive. In 1935 a new generation of Delahayes was born starting with the T135 powered by a 3.2-litre engine, and in 1938 Prince Bira won the Donington 12-Hour Sports Car Race and went on to take victory at Brooklands. The model reappeared post-WW2 as the 135M with the improved 3½-litre engine and bodied by famous coachbuilders such as Pennock, Figoni et Falaschi, Chapron, Franay and remained in production until 1951. Some10 years ago she underwent a total nut and bolt body off restoration, by a fastidious enthusiast, at which time literally everything that could possibly be done was done. Then forming part of his private collection until acquired by us. Beautifully finished in Deep Maroon and Burgundy complimented by finely hand painted Silver coach lining and her pontoon-style front wings, she is stunning to say the least. Her interior being trimmed in biscuit hide with fully lined matching Mohair hood and contrasting maroon carpets. A stunning car in both looks and performance with a rakish and streamlined appearance. We have now undertaken a full and extensive re-commissioning and service. This fantastic, very rare, collectable car is now ready for extensive touring and is sensibly priced.
