    I'd be of the opinion it might not have been manufactured in the orange colour depicted, however? Possibly a bit Avant Garde even for the thirties?

    I always loved bonnet straps too, they stop the unused power from bursting out of the bonnet.....................

    It is truly glorious in the metal & the colour was indeed originally orange (this is as close to original as can be managed & from all available reports it's near indistinguishable from how it originally came).

    The owner drives it vigorously & it is but temporarily in our museum.

    Personally I prefer another Delage of his (also vigorously used) which we had six months or so ago.

    Photo from that display is below.

    cheers! Peter

    Both cars are Victorian plated: anyone know who the owner(s) is/are?

    Any car yard salesman will tell you that orange is the worst colour for value and resale'ability so stay clear of it!

    It gets worse: no bluetooth connectivity for the iphone, no sound system, no climate control & so on.

    That IS a gorgeous looking beast. When you look this good, the colour doesn't matter. I happen to like the orange.
