Delahaye 135 M Coach Chapron 1947 RHD This is exactly why I so much like my job! To open the door of a dusty multi storey garage in Brussels and being confronted with this delicious 'barnfind' which has been patiently waiting for her rescue for at least 40 years. Wipe off the dust, open the doors (Wow, what a smell...!), bonnet (Wow, what an engine...!) and bootlid. Inspect this stylish Delahaye from above and underneath in all her details and enjoy a very satisfactory feeling for the rest of the day... Some research learns me that this 1947 Delahaye 135 M Coach Chapron is totally correct and matching numbers. The engine compartiment shows proudly the impressive 3,5 l. 6-cylinder in line with 3 Solex carburettors which was good for an impressive 125 BHP and 100 Miles/h in those days. The pre-selective Cotal gearbox guaranteed a sort of avant-gardish easy gearchange. The comfortable drivers + passengers compartiment is looking extremely charming and cosy in chocolat color leather showing an irresistable attractive patina. The wooden dash with 2 big OS instruments and nice period buttons & switches + lovely steering wheel is complemented by the typical 'top of the fingers' Cotal pre-selective satelite gearchange frame. Yes, you have understood well: After all these years of emotional neglect this Delahaye is desperately seeking for some TLC. From you?
