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.

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...

Lovely car. Two tone paint job makes it look great. I love the grill and front end.

Very nice car, especially the coachwork, but I'm not a fan of plexiglass steering wheel

That is a beautiful looking car mate, cheers.
