1937 Delahaye 135 Cabriolet to be Auctioned in September

The car company for manufacturing French luxury cars of the prewar period was founded in 1895 by Emile Delahaye. After he died, his employees carried on his legacy with some truly spectacular machines. Many patents were issued to Delahaye prior to World War I and perhaps the most important were for a V-6 layout as well as a twin-cam multi-valve engine.

Production of their most recognized model the 135, began in 1935 as a 3.2-liter 90 or 110 horsepower machine. It was nicknamed the Coupe des Alpes after winning the grueling Alpine Rally.

This striking 1937 Delahaye 135, whose bodywork was designed by Henri Chapron, is highly desirable. The car looks very elegant with its two-color livery with dark blue sides, whereas its tops of the teardrop fenders is accented by a silver beltline and lower fender panels. All that is paired with a dark blue canvas roof and a blue leather interior. The engine has been upgraded to a postwar-style triple carburetor.

Estimated price is $550,000 – $650,000.

Here are some specifications:

  • Triple carburetor six-cylinder engine
