More about the Delaunay BellevilleI thought this might be interesting to some of you...
This car was manufactured in France in 1911. At that time it was usual to have the carriage body of such a car built in another place, this Landaulet has been built near Kensington in England. The first owner is said to have traded it in for a new Rolls Royce in the mid-30s. The second owner later borrowed it to the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, England.
After a long time on exhibition it was sold in the mid-80s to the third (and present) owner who has just finished the last important details: all the dirt of so many decades has been gently removed from the original painting reveiling it's original blue colour. I always thought the car was black! Everything is in it's original state, even the interior decoration.
The tech guy behind it Alfred Smidt of klassikerschmiede.de had a busy weekend explaining all the interesting details of this project and the history of this veteran car to the visitors.
