By now the word “Barn Find” is rather inflated and often used inappropriately, which is why we were intrigued when, reading about this car, we found that it is a “Container Find”.
It seems in fact that this ato was recovered by the old owner who kept it in a wooden container used until the early 60s, while the car seems to have been parked in this container since 1962. of wood and the Connecticut climate have tanned it badly: a pity because, properly preserved, today it could have been an extraordinary survivor, also because it seems that only 2 of Delahaye with this bodywork by Letourneur et Marchand were produced; the sister of this car went missing, probably during or after WWII.
The world’s greatest expert from Delahaye, Paul Tissot, confirmed the origin of this car with a certificate that also includes a photo from the era of the car. In short: here a great effort is needed for a glorious result; who knows who will take this burden. Find it for sale at $225,000 here in Los Angeles, CA.
