Thank you for collecting the pictures, Bert.

Nice Coupes from Hilversum, Holland, on Delahaye chassis!
In 1946 Dutch firm Lagerwij from The Hague imported over a hundred Delahaye 135 chassis to be bodied in the Netherlands and most of them were to be sold abroad. Most of the Delahayes were bodied by Pennock, but some received a coachwork from Van Leersum (Hilversum) and from Van Rijswijk (The Hague).

are you shure, that the last Car is from van Leersum? It's now offered as Saoutchik Coupe?

Rob was being cynical, because of another auctioneers lie. :) It absolutely is a Van Leersum body. Except for the two-tone color scheme and the chrome trim around the rear wheels, the body is identical to the first car.

Saoutchik sells better and is more expensive, they allways try.

Mr Geelen being cynical? No! :lol: But the point is that this body does not really look like Saoutchik, does it? Interesting and pleasing enough (and certainly better than the indistinct lumps of hearses and the like that are the only other work of Van Leersum that I have seen), but just having coachbuilder's plate screwed on doesn't mean that it has always been there. For some, a cheap T-shirt from a sweat-shop is worth paying 10 times more for if it has a "designer" label on it. It is like the notorious "fakes" in the fine art world of 40 or 50 years ago that so outraged people. Of course the outraged people were those who couldn't tell a Cezanne from a hole in the ground, but had parted with large sums of money as "an investment". If you don't have an eye for it then you might as well just hang bags of money or gold bars from your wall (that'll be a Turner Prize entry next year now). Rob has a good eye and I suspect does not have a fake Van Gogh on his wall.

All pre-war Mercedes-Benz belonged to von Ribbentrop and all W.O. Bentleys ran at Le Mans. The car that I am offering for sale has had one careful owner (and thirty-seven destructive maniacs).

Clive.

Is it a second version of the car shown above on the black & white pic ? They have different bumpers and different registration numbers.
