Jorge Macome from 1966 until 1971, in which year he gave it to his wife Néné. She used her Delahaye for daily transport as well as for certain historic events such as the Rally for Classic Automobiles in Mar del Plata in 1971. These assertions are backed up by a video, made between the 21st and the 25th of May 1971, in which the Delahaye can be seen. She was at that time painted light and dark blue. Jorge Macome claimed that the car had been bought new in 1939 by an Argentinian engineer, who later sold it to the person from whom he had himself bought it. The car was kept by his family until the 1980s, when it was sold, restored and repainted in two shades of metallic blue before being exported to France. It was sold at auction shortly afterwards and changed hands once more in 2007. The hydraulic brake system, which replaced the original cable-operated brakes, has been recently overhauled, as has the ignition system and the master cylinder.
The upholstery, which is certainly the original fitting, has just been given special treatment to nourish and refresh the leather. The woodwork is still in excellent condition and the appearance of the whole interior is very good.The chrome fittings and the hood lining are also well preserved. As the restoration was carried out a number of years ago, the paintwork is nicely patinated. However, perfectionists would doubtless prefer to have the car repainted once more. The hood needs to be renovated so that this beautiful car can become irreproachable again. The most demanding owners would want to refresh the cosmetics of this car to the highest standards, but the mechanics are in very good order. This is a fabulous opprtunity to acquire one of the masterpieces of French coachwork, in its most exclusive version.
