Barrett-Jackson – 1949 Delahaye Type 175 Saoutchick

I loved seeing this car in person. It is a beautiful work of art and sold for 1.1 million dollars.


You can pop the top off just like my Vette

Great looking Dash!!!

Love the slope in the rear and bright work is amazing.



The design was based on the first post-war Delahaye chassis from a 175 S Roadster (chassis number 815023) producing 165 bhp from an engine much larger than the pre-war Delahayes ran – a 4,455 cc naturally aspirated overhead valve inline six cylinder engine with four-speed electro-mechanically actuated Cotal Preselector gearbox, Dubonnet coil spring front suspension, De Dion rear axle with semi-elliptic springs, and four-wheel hydraulic finned alloy drum brakes. The wheelbase was a whopping 116 inches.

Thanks for reading
