    It's ready to go. I'm happy. Hopefully we will get a lot of models out.

    Delahaye is ready to go.
    The body is almost original. Spare wheel cover is from Citroen 15. The base engine is a Buick V6 , transmission and tires from Ferrari. Front Axle from Mustang. All the rest is my own imagination.

    Delahaye October!
    Interior is almost ready. Seats, steering wheel and emergency brake handle are unknown series. The rear seat is modified the original. All the rest is my own design. Engine details are not yet ready. Two months still have time.

    Delahaye September.
    The car is primed and painted with a thin layer of light brown. Mixer Humbrol Gloss brown and white Revell SM. I do not like the color, but this is a sleeper :). I polish the body smooth and marks. Maybe it will be completed sometime.

    Delahaye August.
    Sorry my bad English and bad pictures. little progress. The frame is painted and gearbox is mounted. The front axle is from mustang and fitted with air suspension. For the first time I see a car height. there is plenty of room for radiator and intercooler in front of the engine.
    So far, the only changes in the body is the rear fenders air vents for the brakes. Sleeper.

    Delahaye July.
     
    Sleeper is progressing gradually. Now it is the turn of body work to outline style. I do not want big changes in appearance. It does not look like a racing car.
