FrankWo identified it once as a Delahaye 135 with body by Figoni & Falaschi from 1935 with some alteration done in 1940.

Found a another photo on Forum-Auto (French site).......Definitely a Delahaye...
Enjoy!
I think it was more than a redo in 1940....More like a total rebody......

I'm surprised this was designed in 1935, it really is quite different, the blending of fender into hood area looks like late 40's, the fender is still a bit of a pontoon but not what you'd expect. I'd say it took advanced metal shaping technique for 1935 - I don't doubt the accuracy of the date but I'm remarking on the 'how' of it was built.

The current look (remodel) was not from 1935 (the black & white photos are however) but best I can determine occurred somewhere after 1951 or 1952.....Too the current shade of blue (French Blue) was applied after 2010.......
