Vehicle Description

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The S�ragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019. Estimate: €400,000 - €450,000 Rare and authentic Chapron 'Grand Luxe' bodywork Equipped with its original matching-numbers engine Delivered 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 7 March, 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 client's 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 Trist�o Guedes de Queiroz, Second Marquess of Foz, as a gift for his wife, Mariana Brand�o de Melo Magalh�es, 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 Iriz� 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 S�ragga Collection for the last few years. Today this exquisite and rare Delahaye presents beautifully and will be a welcome entry in international concours events. It is a French 'grande routi�re' in the classic manner that will be an elegant focal point in any collection, as well as on the show field. Rara e aut�ntica carro�aria Chapron 'Grand Luxe' Mant�m o motor original, em correspond�ncia com o chassis Entregue novo em Portugal, a� permanecendo desde ent�o O Delahaye 135M com o n�mero de chassis 60139 foi despachado para a empresa de carro�arias Henri Chapron � na rua Aristide-Briand, em Levallois-Perret � a 13 de janeiro de 1939. Os trabalhos ficaram conclu�dos a 7 de mar�o, recebendo uma arrebatadora carro�aria na rara especifica��o 'Grand Luxe'. Esta inclu�a portas, capota, para-choques e guarda-lamas de diferente desenho, bem como um luxuoso interior, que podia ser personalizado de acordo com os desejos do cliente. A op��o 'Grand Luxe' aumentava o pre�o em cerca de 50% face a uma carro�aria de s�rie. Por esse motivo, apenas cerca de 40 destes faustosos autom�veis foram manufaturados, entre 1937 e 1939. Conhecem-se menos de uma vintena de exemplares que chegaram aos nossos dias. A encomenda especial dizendo respeito ao chassis n�mero 60139 foi feita em nome de Trist�o Guedes de Queiroz, 2�. Marqu�s da Foz, como presente para a sua mulher, Mariana Brand�o de Melo Magalh�es, por ocasi�o do nascimento da filha de ambos, em maio de 1939. Quando chegou a Lisboa, o autom�vel ficou alguns dias em exposi��o no stand local da Delahaye. Do acontecimento foi tirada uma foto, para publicidade e divulga��o, inclu�da na documenta��o da sua hist�ria, juntamente com a ficha de fabrico da Chapron. Igualmente inclusa est� a correspond�ncia original, que regista a dispendiosa manufactura da carro�aria nesta especifica��o, bem como as exig�ncias particulares efetuadas, inclu�ndo a combina��o de cores especial vermelho Rouge Ponceau e cinza Gris Iriz�, os para-choques "torpille" e a roda suplente, parcialmente integrada atr�s. A fam�lia Queiroz vendeu o Delahaye em meados dos anos 50 e, em 1971, foi adquirido por Ant�nio Carvalho. Por esta altura, tinha sido pintado de preto e mantinha-se numa boa condi��o de utiliza��o na estrada. Foi realizado um restauro completo, a partir do chassis, nos anos 80, recuperando as suas cores originais. Em 1996, Carvalho vendeu o autom�vel a Michel Poncin e foi integrado na cole��o S�ragga h� alguns anos. Atualmente, este requintado e raro Delahaye encontra-se em bel�ssimo estado e ser� bem-vindo aos concursos de eleg�ncia internacionais. � um grande estradista franc�s na tradi��o cl�ssica do termo � grande routi�re � e ser� um refinado protagonista n�o s� de qualquer cole��o, mas tamb�m do circuito dos concours d'elegance.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19 .
