1947 Delahaye Type 135 M

Chassis number : 800479

Share on:

Sold for $210,000 at 2022 RM Sothebys : Fort Lauderdale.
This 1947 Delahaye Type 135M drop head coupe wears coachwork that may have been done by Henri Chapron. In early 1973 the car was owned by Edgar Poncelot and was registered 8812 RZ 54 by the department of Meurthe et Moselle. Period photographs show the car painted white.

In 1997, the car was offered for sale at auction by Christie's in Geneva Switzerland on May 22nd. From there, the car made its way to England where it was offered by Coys in July of that year. A short time later the car was sold and remained in England. During this time, the car was restored and the bodywork was modified with the fitting of the chrome trim to the bottom of the front wings and an alteration of the boot (moving the spare wheel to the outside).

In October of 1999, the car was offered for sale by Coys and sold to Germany and then offered for sale again in August of 2000. Around this time, the car was exported to the United States. Prior to exportation, the original engine (#800479 - a triple-carbureted motor) was exchanged for a single carburetor unit (engine number 800792). The original engine is currently installed to a shooting brake 135M.

In 2001, this car was sold at auction as part of Christie's Pebble beach auction to Pennsylvania. The current owner acquired the car in 2002 and it has remained in his private collection for the past 19 years.
