This freshly restored Delage DM was the first car made in the 1929 model year according to the numbers, and was built in the first week of October, 1928. The current owner bought the car over 20 years ago as a bare chassis but with front mudguards, firewall and bonnet. He intended putting a lightweight skiff body on it (like everyone else) until someone in the Club produced a picture of the actual car, compelling him to reinstate its original style of body. From images of different body styles available on Delage chassis in Paris at the time and a footnote to some saying that the body is available in coachbuilt, semi-coachbuilt or full fabric, he used that as justification for going full fabric on this car. All of the mechanicals have been restored or rebuilt, and with a higher than original diff ratio, a nice touring car has materialised. These cars with a light sedan body, came with vacuum assisted brakes which work very well and with torque tube rear end and friction shock absorbers, it drives more like a modern car than most would expect. The original body was by Martin & King (1916-1953) of Melbourne, Australia, a favoured bodybuilder for Delage and Sunbeam. Engine and gearbox are both the original.
