Delage's Legacy
Founded near Paris in 1905 by the visionary Louis Delage, Delage quickly ascended to the ranks of France's premier luxury car manufacturers, rubbing shoulders with illustrious names like Bugatti, Hispano Suiza, and Talbot Lago.

The Parisian Gem
Debuting at the October 1930 Paris Salon, the Delage D6, designed by Maurice Gaultier, boasted a 3045cc OHV engine mated to a four-speed 'Cotal' gearbox. Crafted with precision, the D6 featured a robust ladder frame chassis, all-round leafspring suspension, and four-wheel drum brakes. Despite its undeniable allure, the D6 found itself overshadowed by its esteemed sibling, to which it bore striking similarities in both price and appeal. Consequently, a mere 1160 D6s are believed to have graced the Parisian streets between 1930 and 1933.

This exquisite D6-70 (1937) model showcases a cabriolet body designed by Henri Chapron and assembled in England by University Coachcraft. Formerly in the possession of a Belgian collector, this vehicle has undergone comprehensive restoration, encompassing its bodywork, interior, and mechanical components. Having spent significant time in the sunny South of France, the car has been a frequent contender in rallies organized by the French Delage club. The engine has received a fresh and expert rebuild, now standing in peak condition.
