Rare and superb cabriolet made by the Carrosserie Chapron and exhibited at the Salon de Paris in 1948.
The particularity of type 175 is to have the steering wheel placed on the left, which besides its more imposing template makes it easy to differentiate it from type 135.
This Delahaye 175 S is one of those ten left hand drive models.
The body style of this 4-seat convertible was called 'The Dandy' by the coachbuilder Henry Chapron;
The name was later used for a custom body on the Citroën DS platform, unrelated to this car.
