To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019. Rare and authentic Chapron Grand Luxe bodyworkEquipped with its original matching-numbers engineDelivered new to Lisbon and residing in Portugal from new Delahaye 135M chassis number 60139 was shipped to carrosserie Henri Chapron on the rue Aristide-Briand in Levallois-Perret on 13 January 1939. Completed on March 7, its ravishing new body was finished to the rare Grand Luxe specification, which included redesigned doors, hood, bumpers, and wings, as well as a luxury interior that could be detailed to the clients express wishes. The Grand Luxe option increased the price by approximately 50% compared to a standard body. As a result, only about 40 of these opulent automobiles were built from 1937 to 1939, and less than 20 are known to survive.The special order for chassis number 60139 was placed by Tristão Guedes de Queiroz, Second Marquess of Foz, as a gift for his wife, Mariana Brandão deMelo Magalhães, on the happy occasion of the birth of their daughter in May 1939. When first delivered to Lisbon, the car was displayed for some days at the Delahaye dealership there. A promotional photo was taken, which is included in the accompanying history file, along with its Chapron build sheet and original correspondence that documents the costly specification the body was built to, as well as the many particular demands that were made, including the special Rouge Ponceau and Gris Irizé colour combination, torpille front fenders, and semi-integrated continental spare.The Queiroz family sold the car in the mid-1950s, and in 1971 it was purchased by Antonio Carvalho. By this time it had been repainted black and was in well-maintained driving condition. A frame-off restoration was commissioned in the 1980s, where it was returned to its original colour scheme. Carvalho sold the car to Michel Poncin in 1996, and it has resided in the Sáragga collection for the last few years.Today this exquisiteand rare Delahaye presents beautifully and will be a welcome entry in international concours events. It is a French grande routiére in the classic manner that will be an elegant focal point in any collection, as well as on the show field.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
