This Delahaye 135 M coupé is a rare and elegant Gascogne coach built by the coachbuilder Dubos. It was first registered on 10 November 1951, and comes with a lovely history. The car was bought in 1959 by three youngsters who were passionate about the marque and has stayed with the same family ever since. One of the three, who ultimately became the sole owner, completely restored the car in a project completed towards the end of the 1990s. Since his death in the early 2000s, the car has only been driven occasionally but has been stored in good conditions. Presented in black with wire wheels, the leather interior in two shades of brown is nicely patinated and appears to be original. The Delahaye has a Cotal gearbox, a rare sunroof and comes with a new set of carpets. Restored some years ago, it has been conserved in good condition, the underbody is sound and the whole car presents well. It has just been put back on the road and the future owner will need to carry out a general mechanical check. Here is a great opportunity to enjoy the refined elegance of a rare Gasgogne version of this 135M with great history.
