Description

8 cylinder engine
Unique Chapron bodywork
French collection title

The model presented is a rare model that has only been produced for 1 year. It is equipped with a monoblock in-line 8 cylinders engine of 2.7 liters of cubic capacity. The crankshaft is 5-step with damper. Its power is 80 hp at 4,400 rpm. Its body is a very elegant four-seater convertible by Henri Chapron. It's owned by the same owner for 21 years.
Having been the object of an old restoration which always presents itself advantageously, the Delage is described as being in good general condition, it participated in many contests of elegance. Its mechanics are in good working order, the engine is running well. The Friends of Delage, the brand's famous club in France, have confirmed that this car is matching numbers, they have a factory approval form that can be retrieved from them. We thank Daniel Cabart and Jean-Michel Charpentier for their help in researching about this car.

The Delage are excellent cars, the D8 are the most prestigious and the rarest!
