Description: Delahaye 235 coach Chapron, Collection Roger Baillon
No reserve

Carte grise française
Châssis n° 818080
Chapron n° 7040

- Une pièce d''histoire
- Voiture saine, intérieur joliment préservé
- Sans réserve
- Provenant de la Collection Roger Baillon

Cette Delahaye 235 est indéniablement une pièce exceptionnelle, sous la poussière qui s''est accumulée pendant 40 ans d''immobilisation, alors qu''elle était conservée dans le château de Roger Baillon dans les Deux Sèvres, il reste une voiture qui paraît complète et saine, sur ses jantes à rayons. Rien n''a été touché ni vandalisé, le moteur est en place avec ses accessoires, mais la meilleure surprise est à l''intérieur : à part une déchirure sur la porte passager et au bas de la porte conducteur, la sellerie cuir des sièges est bien conservée et présente une belle patine, avec une qualité de fabrication propre aux productions Henri Chapron. Les instruments de tableau de bord semblent complets, à l''exception de la radio. Le compteur kilométrique affiche 40 618 km et, dans le coffre, on découvre la roue de secours, le cric et la manivelle.
A propos de la production de ce modèle, Jean-Paul Tissot, président du Club Delahaye et auteur de l''ouvrage "Delahaye, la belle carrosserie française", nous a précisé : "Excepté les cabriolets et les coupés 235 réalisés par Henri Chapron, ce carrossier a produit 41 coaches sur cet ultime modèle de la production Delahaye, sur une production totale de 85-86 châssis 235 sortis de 1951 à 1954. Sur ces 41 coaches, je dénombre 33 coaches "usine" proposés généralement directement par Delahaye, comme le n° 818080 de la vente."
Ce coach extrêmement rare est un des derniers témoins de la grande carrosserie, mais aussi l''ultime trace d''une des plus belles collections françaises, qui par sa beauté et sa poésie a éternellement sublimé les automobiles d''origine.



French title
Chassis # 818080
Chapron No. 7040

- A piece of history
- Sound car, with beautifully preserved interior
- No reserve
- From The Baillon Collection

This Delahaye 235 is definitely a rare example and, under the dust that has accumulated over 40 years of nonuse in the Roger Baillon castle, the car appears to be complete and sound on its wire wheels. Nothing has been touched or vandalized, the engine contains its accessories, but the best surprise is the interior: except for a tear in the passenger door and the bottom of the driver''s door, the seat leather is well preserved and has a beautiful patina with a manufacturing quality that shows the quality of Henri Chapron. The dashboard instruments look complete, with the exception of the radio. The odometer shows 40,618km, and in the trunk, we found the spare wheel, jack and crank.
Jean-Paul Tissot, the president of Delahaye Club and author of the book "Delahaye, la belle carrosserie française" indicated us about the production of this model: "Except for the convertibles and coupes 235 made by Henri Chapron, this coachbuilder produced just 41 sedans of this final production model Delahaye, out of a total production of about 85/86 chassis 235 between 1951 and 1954. Of these 41 sedans, I have counted 33 "factory" sedans, offered by Delahaye directly for sale, like chassis no. 818080, which is on offer."
This extremely rare sedan is one of the last witnesses amongst the achievements of this great brand, and of one of the most famous French collections ever.
