DELAGE D8N/D8C/D8L

Saloon, sports saloon, coupé, cabriolet, limousine, numerous specials.

You never see an ugly one, even a limousine, though high waistlines and slit-windscreens make D8s less than ideal in city traffic. Complex valve gear, but massive and should give 85mph from 120bhp. Watch it, though, some formals have 5.4 back axles. Respective wheelbases are 136, 130 and 143ins. Always with four-speed crash 'box and rhd.
