Description: 1948 Delahaye 135 MS Faget Varnet Cabriolet

This Delahaye body was built bt Faget Varnet, a small post-war French coachbuilder and was featured at the 1949 Salon de Paris. The company built two cabriolets in this configuration and this particular automobile was a gift to Michelline Varnet, the designer's daughter, for use on her honeymoon in 1950. The chassis is the high performance "MS" version of Delahaye's famous 135 model delivering 125 horsepower from its 3.5 liter six-cylinder motor through a Cotal electric gearbox. This vehicle is very advanced technically as Varnet pioneered monocoque construction. The elegant design includes curved side glass, disappearing top and frameless windshield. While not as widely known as some other French coachbuilders, Faget Varnet won numerous Concours d'Elegance awards and this very rare survivor is itself a multiple award winner.
