1937 DELAHAYE 135 M CABRIOLET DUBOS Serial number 48718 One off example of Dubos coachwork Same owner since 1981 French title This model, with his six-cylinder engine powered by three Solex carburetors is in a very good condition, this Delahaye 135 has a singular history for his owner. Seen in his youth in the 1950s, he had sworn one day to own this car, and then the years passed. Then, one day, his brother made a trip in Paris to buy a Delahaye, he accompanied him, and saw in the back of the garage, the 135 of his childhood that he hastened to acquire. We are then in the 1980s and the car although in good general condition required some work fitness. That is why he undertook, with the greatest coachbuilders, saddlers and engine manufacturers of the time, a complete restoration of the car. The Restoration Atelier Restauration de Touraine, Maîtrise des Métiers de l’Automobile, la Carrosserie Lecoq, all work to this Delahaye. His owner restored ten years to give back to this car, its beauty of yesteryear. Completed in the 1990s, it was ready for the owner's daughter's wedding and convoyed the bride and groom during the ceremony before being handed over to the garage. The beauty was then regularly started and maintained over the years, offering a few outings on very special occasions, which explains its current state simply unbelievable for a restoration of more than thirty years. Today, Osenat offers a great opportunity to enter the very closed circle of owners of the pre-war Delahaye 135 Cabriolet. Thanks to the Club Delahaye France for helping us about this car's history.
