1908 Delage Type F

Delage is a French company that was founded in 1905 by L.Delage and A.Legros. The marque began producing lightweight cars which advanced thanks to the companies’ racing program. Delage continued producing cars untill the thirties. Within that time frame they moved from making small race-abouts to larger, more luxurious limosines. In 1935 the Delage company was bought up by Delahaye which continued regular production until 1954.

This particular Type F was believed to have raced at the 1908 Dieppe Grand Prix with a De-Dion two-cylinder engine. Unfortunately the car does not retain its orginal engine.
