1952 – Delahaye 235 Cabriolet Chapron: a new take on history

Mr José M. called me recently because he had seen the car in the press and thought he recognized it.

“I owned an identical car in the 70s. In 1952 it was sold at the Geneva Motor Show to Mr Breitling”.

Bingo! It is indeed ours. And his testimony allowed us to fill a hole in the history of the car.

We know that until the end of the 70s, the car remained in Switzerland. It then went to Morocco (which we already knew) before arriving in France in the 80s.

We hope to be able to publish some pictures from the 70’s soon.

The complete history of the car and the details of the Soft Auction are available here.
