After the 1949 Delahaye 135MS Coupe with its spat wheels, another Delahaye 135 M is heading to auction though RM Sotheby's during its Retromobile Sale in Paris next week. This is the cabriolet version with a coachwork by Guilloré, French coachbuilder.
History of the Delahaye 135 M
The 135 M was first presented in 1935 by Delahaye, French automative company founded in 1894 by Émile Delahaye. The production continued until 1954, 20 years of production pretty rare for a car.
Different models were built with different coachbuilders because Delahaye, didn't produce coachwork, all its chassis were bodied by other companies. :
- The 135MS, the sportier version, seen in competition mostly during the Alpine Rally hence its nickname Coupe des Alpes.
- Coachwork by Carrosserie Ghia-Aigle with spat wheels (More about it on a previous post)
> 135 MS Coupé
This model is the cabriolet version built after the WWII with a classically elegant coachwork by Guilloré, hand built.
With its engine 3,227 cc straight-6, the 135 M produces 95–110 hp.
This model was restored by Carrosserie Lecoq, French restorer and finished in chrome & black over a light blue interior with a steering wheel in clear plexiglass. So luxurious...
