This 1938 Delage D6-70 has Cabriolet coachwork created by A. Guillore. The D6-70 was introduced in 1937, shortly after the Delahaye take-over. Mounted under the bonnet is a six-cylinder Delage engine that displaces 2729cc from the overhead-valve unit. Drive is via a Cotal electrically operated four-speed gearbox and hydraulic drums can be found at all four corners.

Guilloré of Courbevoie is arguably one of the greatest coachbuilders of the pre-World War II era. They were in business for only a short time, lasting from 1937 through 1950 with part of that time suspended for war efforts.

This stunning Cabriolet is a brilliant example of their level of craftsmanship. In 2007 it was brought to the Quail Lodge Resort & Golf Club in Carmel, California where it was auctioned at the Bonhams auction, An Important Sale of Collectors' Motorcars and Automobilia. It was estimated to sell for $200,000 - $300,000 but failed to find a buyer willing to satisfy the cars reserve. The lot was left unsold.
