Staid and sedate, this Delage D6/70 Coupé de Ville is presented in basic black, with just a wide gold coachline for relief. Dual side-mount spares have full metal covers entirely devoid of brightwork. The paint is generally very good, showing a deep shine. The dashboard and instrument panel show considerable age, although they could be revived with careful detailing. The chauffeur’s compartment is upholstered in black leather, and the passenger compartment is in grey cloth. Both exhibit some age, and there is some staining to the brown cloth side panels of the passenger compartment. The engine compartment is generally clean but is not detailed. The brightwork also shows some pits and surface rust.

An unusual example of the late-1930s Delage, this Coupé de Ville will benefit from careful detailing or could be an excellent candidate for a complete restoration.

Denne gedigne Delage D6/70 Coupé de Ville præsenteret i standard sort med en enkelt en guldfarvet kant. De to sidemonterede reservehjul har metaldæksler uden nogen polerede detaljer. Lakeringen er generelt meget flot, og udviser en dyb glans. Instrumentbræt og panel viser betydelig alder, men de kunne nemt blive genoplivet med forsigtig gennemgang. Chaufførens afdeling er betrukket med sort læder og kabinen i gråt stof. Begge dele viser en vis alder og der er enkelte pletter på de brune stof-sidepaneler i kabinen. Motorrummet er generelt i god stand, men er ikke istandsat. Poleringen viser også visse fordybninger og overfladerust.

Som et usædvanligt eksempel af de sene 1930eres Delage, vil denne Coupé de Ville drage fordel af en grundig gennemgang, eller den kunne være en fremragende kandidat for komplet restaurering.
