Coupe
Coachwork: Henri Chapron
Chassis #: 48773
This is one of four cars built for the Ecurie Bleue racing team that was owned by Lucy Schell and competed in 1938 and 1939. It is built on a Type 145 racing chassis with a Type 165 4.5-liter V12 engine developing 184 horsepower, and a four-speed manual transmission with four-wheel mechanically operated ventilated drum brakes. After several races and just before the war broke out, the Ecurie Bleue team decided to sell the car, and it was one of two Type 145s bought by Henri Chapron in order to create his own grand touring coupes. His work was interrupted by the war but when the coachwork was completed in 1947 the car was bought by a M. Vanpoucque. William Procter of Procter & Gamble Company was its next owner in 1951, and he brought the car to the United States. Subsequent owners included Bob Grier, Lew Gotthainer, and Count Hubertus von Doenhoff. Mr. Peter Mullin added the Delahaye to his collection in 2004.
