Delahaye History

1938 Delahaye Type 135

Chassis number : 49315

Share on:

This unusual Delahaye 135 M is one of only two such Delahayes with Roadster bodies built by the Carlton Carriage Company of London. Carlton was well known for its open bodywork on many different European chassis throughout the 1920s and 1930s. This car's first owner was amateur race driver Joe Fry, a member of the Fry's Chocolate Company family. He competed with the Delahaye in many prewar sprints and hill climbs. The car remained in his ownership until his untimely death in July 1950 while practicing for the Blandford Hill Climb. Subsequent owners also campaigned the car in England, then it was purchased by collector Nick Harley and taken to the South of France. He restored the car before selling it to its current owner in 2017.
