This one-off coupe, designed by Faget-Varnet, was the last Delahaye 135 MS to be delivered just before the company was taken over by Hotchkiss in 1954. The 'greenhouse' style roof is an interesting modification from the Ford Comete body shell built by Facel Metallon and shows that car's styling elements, including the unique sliding roof. This car was fitted with a Cotal gearbox and upgraded with Delage's own hydraulic brake system from new. It features many details that were later seen on the Facel Vega sports car introduced in 1954. This car was intended for the 1953 Paris Auto Salon but was not completed in time, so it was kept by Facel-Varnet until it was sold in 1981. The car has been driven fewer than 7,000 miles from new and was recently restored prior to being displayed at the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
