Delahaye type 135

Chapron 1948

Some of the most graceful bodies of the 1930s were designed by the Paris based Figoni & Falaschi Carrossiers. Characteristic for the the designs are the many chrome accents on the curvacious body. Most of the chassis fitted with Figoni & Falaschi bodies were French, Delahaye was no exception. The 135 MS chassis with a 135 bhp engine was the perfect base for this Cabriolet body.
