Delahaye 135 Competition Court coupe 1936
This car was specifically called "competition court" because of its shortened factory custom 2.70 meter wheelbase. It was comissioned by wealthy French industrialist M. Jeancart. Later it was passed to '30s film star Dolores del Rio. After many owners it landed in the collection of Yoshiyuki Hayashi of Japan who comissioned Hill&Vaughn to completely restore the car during the '80s. It then debuted at the Pebble Beach Concours.
