This 1938 Delage D6-70 with its 2.7-liter, 6-cylinder engine has coachwork created by Letourner et Marchand in Paris. The D6-70 was introduced in 1937, shortly after Delage's merger with competitor Delahaye. This cabriolet was built for Mme. Claire Lecomte and was exhibited at concours d'elegance in Paris and Biarritz in the summer of 1938. For the duration of the war the Delage lay partly hidden in a barn in Biarritz and was sadly neglected. After being rescued by a local car dealer and partly restored, it again fell on hard times and was eventually parked in its owner's front garden, gaining the nickname La Rouille, 'The Rusty!' It was rescued very recently and the current owner has restored it to its prewar elegance.
