Auction Sales History
1949 Delahaye GFA 148L limousine Guilloré – sold for €30,992
his Delahaye 148 L (for “Léger” (light), the wheelbase being shorter than that of the standard 148), has a limousine body that was built in the Guilloré workshops, in Courbevoie. It has a separate driver’s compartment, that was available as an option. It is likely that the red leatherette upholstery with black piping has been re-done. The painted metal dashboard appears to be complete and the clock is in the glove box. Following a collision, the front left door was damaged and put away in the boot. This car has a Cotal gearbox, with the small “moutardier” control on the steering wheel. An old registration number appears on the body : 67 BB 32, but the car is to be sold unregistered.
