Hi,

You all know that a magnificient Delahaye 135 MS Competition Figoni&Falaschi will be on sale tomorrow at RM auction in Monaco. The description of the car says:
"According to Philippe Looten, the Delahaye was acquired by Contet before the war, and Madame Contet took top awards in 1939 at the Concours d’Elegance at La Baule and at the Concours of “La Grande Cascade” in the Bois de Boulogne, Paris."

I checked the results of the concours d'élégance du bois de Boulogne 1939/06/23, and i couldn't find Mme Contet. I know that a Delahaye won the luxury cars category but it was with Inga Lindgren. I don't know yet if the winning Delahaye was the 135MS Comp. F&F #49197.
So, does anyone know about different concours d'élégance in bois de Boulogne during the same year?

Thanks
