1931 Delage D 15S
s/n 38622
Red with Tan Leather Interior

This particular car is believed to be a 1931 example that is among the first examples to be fitted with independent front suspension. The coachwork is believed to be by Pourtout and features rakish cut away front fenders, and a low fold-down windscreen. The car is believed to have originally been delivered to the United Kingdom because it is fitted with Smiths gauges with English units, Lucas headlamps, and four SU carburetors. The dealer plaque affixed to the dashboard also indicates that the car was supplied by an English dealer. The car has seen an older restoration and remains presentable.

The paintwork is a high quality job that is showing some light wear and some imperfections, but remains attractive. The chrome is presentable with some hazing and light pitting, and two areas of peeling, one on the left windscreen pillar, and on one of the hubcaps. The wood framing of the bodywork appears to be solid and intact, and the glass and lights are excellent.

The interior is very nice with quality tan leather and carpets, both of which are showing light wear only. The dashboard is nice wood with no significant cracking or deterioration, and the convertible top is in nice condition. The instruments have an older look but are intact, though the glass of the ammeter is cracked.

The engine compartment also looks to have had some restorative work performed quite some time ago, and the jack and jack handle are present.

This is a rare opportunity acquire a rare, important, and interesting example of this, the last of the original Delages. With its technological sophistication and open convertible body, this car will appeal to someone seeking an interesting car to admire as-is or on which to perform an all-out show restoration.
