1938 Delahaye

Delahaye: As promised, we are featuring the first of several cars which will be making an appearance at this year’s Rétromobile, the Paris auto show. In the middle of the Great Depression, not long before the start of WWII, few things stood out in a community as much as a shiny, new, low-riding vehicle that made any classic gangster command the respect they so desired on the streets. One such car was the 1938 Delahaye Type 165.

Mullin Automotive Museum

The next Rétromobile, the car show that takes place each year in Paris, will feature some exciting car models from the Mullin Automotive Museum. The museum, located in Oxnard, California is generously showing the cars to lucky viewers, and many of the cars haven’t been shown in France since they were new, some almost a century ago! The 10 cars from the museum are sure to bring child-like glee from viewers of all ages. Among them are some of the most valuable and special cars in the world. Over the next few posts, we will highlight some of our favorites from the collection, so be sure to keep checking back!
