DELAHAYE T165

Roadster, coupé.

Roadgoing development of the T145 Grand Prix car shares its hemi heads, roller-bearing crank, dry sump lubrication, dual ignition, duplicated fuel system and four-speed Cotal 'box, but not its de Dion rear end. The only pre-war Delahaye with hydraulic brakes. Remember the Figoni roadster with all-spatted wheels? Possibly more than one survivor, and one T145 was converted to street specification (and is now back to GP form).
