1951 – Delahaye 235 – History of the Cabriolet Chapron “Breitling”

The Delahaye 235 chassis N°818.003 was shipped to Henri Chapron’s workshops in July 1951. It was the third chassis produced by the Delahaye factories and it will be the first convertible built by Henri Chapron.

Presented at the “Salon de Paris” in the fall of 1951 the car will have as its first owner Willy Breitling, the famous manufacturer of luxury watches.

She entered the JWA Classic collection in 2009. Since then it has been driven regularly and is scrupulously maintained but has never been restored.
She is in a very nice original condition.
On the road, the car proves to be very comfortable, you’re really at ease, the rear seats are spacious and you appreciate the flexibility of the suspensions.

Detailed history, video, pictures and more on the Delahaye 235 chassis N°818.003.
On sale at Soft Auctions. Offers can be sent until November 30, 2021.
