Classic Delahaye 135M for Sale

1949 Delahaye 135M 2 Door Saloon
Chassis number: 801428
Registration number: 467UYG

Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1949 Delahaye 135M 2 door saloon for sale. A rare two door coupé by noted French Parisian Coachbuilder Guillore. Significantly, this Delahaye 135M is matching numbers and has the famed ‘Cotal’ semi-automatic gearbox, finished in ‘Circassian Blue’ with grey interior.  This Delahaye 135M was delivered new to its first owner in Marseille where it remained for much of its life.  It has been well maintained with recent well-documented specialist work by ‘Marque’ specialist ‘Polson.’

Recently the Delahaye 135M has had a sympathetic restoration by ‘Premium Classic Cars’ preserving, where possible details of the original interior.

Documented work by Polson has included a new clutch and flywheel in parallel with a full overhaul of the ‘Cotal’ gearbox.  ‘Premium Classic Cars’ continued with an engine-out detailing, a complete overhaul of the Delahaye 135M’s cooling system, fuel delivery system and all electrics.

The suspension (including new bushes) and brakes have been fully rebuilt, with all components stripped to bare metal, prior to repainting.

Brake drums have been machined and reassembled with new linings in conjunction with a full overhaul of the master cylinder.

All four wire wheels have been stripped to bare metal and correctly repainted too.

The interior of the Delahaye 135M has been partly re-trimmed meaning the Delahaye 135M presents itself in a fabulous condition. Many hours of work have helped to preserve the carpets condition and a sympathetic restoration of instruments leaving this 135 M as perhaps, one of the finest examples left in running order today.

There is no doubt regarding the performance heritage of this Delahaye 135M, which in its day was successful at both Le Mans and also the Monte Carlo Rally. The ‘M’ was the more powerful version of the 135 and the car that provided the main stay of the Delahaye’s production up until 1954.

This Delahaye 135M, with customized bodywork by Guillore in coupe form was one of the quicker cars in the UK in 1950. Of course along with its super performance, it also carries the ‘Cotal’ gearbox which injects real pace to a journey and brings wonderful enjoyment to this uniquely satisfying driver’s car.  The blue paint is in good order.  New Grey leather is fitted to the seating surfaces.  The boot is a commodious affair well suited to ample quantities of touring luggage.
