Cabriolet
Coachwork: Faget-Varnet
Chassis #: 800745
Sold for $488,793 (€429,120) at 2015 Rétromobile by Artcurial Motorcars.
This 1948 Delahaye 135 M Cabriolet is one of six cars bodied by Faget-Varnet in Levallois-Perret, a small suburb of Paris. It is thought to be one of three similar cars that have survived and is one of two examples with the distinctive 'rostre' radiator grille with a pronounced central bar that is echoed in the design of the headlamp trim. This is the sole surviving example displaying this feature. The body was built not of wood but through a patented method using aluminum and steel. The cabriolet made its first appearance on the Delahaye stand at the 1948 Paris Auto Salon and was later featured on the cover of the magazine Elites Francaises. Most recently it was sold at auction as part of the fascinating Roger Baillon collection of unrestored cars. Baillon purchased the car in 1964 and put it away in his shed - and there it sat until early 2015. It has since been restored and it made its restoration debut at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
