Saleroom Addendum

Please note that according to a noted marque authority, this Delahaye 135 MS Cabriolet is one of a series of just nine examples built to the highly desirable "Vedette" specification, which included a cockpit designed primarily for two, refined grille design, and other sporting details. It is believed to be one of as few as four in existence and, of those, the sole unrestored example remaining.
