DELAHAYE T135MS

2-door saloon, cabriolet, competition 2-seater, numerous specials.

As for Coupe des Alpes, but bigger engine with 120/130bhp in catalogued form, and a potential 160 without any expensive noises. 14ins drums spell good stopping power, but they're Bendix and you have to maintain them. Handles well: used to be a poor man's Type 57, but now for the rich if not for oil barons. Not all 'works team cars' are genuine, and anything with a GFA badge and a chassis serial in the 80,000 will be post-war. Many competition 2-seaters today never saw the inside of the Delahaye factory, having been made recently from saloon Delahayes.
