Delahaye was founded back in the early days of the automobile in 1894 in the city of Tours in central France. The company was named for its founder, Émile Delahaye, a French engineer who had a particular interest in automobile racing.
Delahaye made the powered rolling chassis for the Classic Delahaye 1939/139, it was then sent out to have a body fitted. The companies that built 139 bodies are an impressive list of French coachbuilding – names like Henri Chapron, Faget-Varnay, Figoni & Falaschi, Jacques Saoutchik, Marcel Pourtout, and many more.
When the Classic Delahaye 135, which the Delahaye 1939/139 was based on, was released in 1935 it proved immediately successful, and it helped to launch Delahaye back to the forefront of the performance motoring world.
The Classic Delahaye 1939/139 was available in both street and racing versions. The Smiling Wombat design shows a street version.
The Racing version raced at many important venues including the 24 Hours of LeMans which it won in 1938.
