Several foreign coachbuilders mounted their creations on the Delage D8-120, notably the Belgian Albert d'Ieteren, whose company went on to build and sell Volkswagens in Belgium.
An example of a d'Ieteren-bodied Delage is in the extensive Yvan Mahy collection in Ghent, Belgium.
In 1939 the Delage D8-120 was almost the most expensive French car, with a price of 105,800 francs in chassis form, giving a price of approximately 160,000 francs with body.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
