A lovely light touring car with well-documented history and a regular on VCC events in England. Mechanically sorted and presented with a warm and inviting patina that encourages frequent use.
This 1914 Type A1 Sports Tourer is a lovely example of this charismatic and rarely seen Pre-WW1 Delage. Thanks to a long string of attentive, enthusiastic owners, this well-restored car now displays a fabulous patina acquired through years as well-loved VCC tour car. According to the history file, this car was delivered new in Australia via Fraser & Willsford of Sydney. Little else is known of the earliest history; however, correspondence shows it was discovered in the village of Gulargambone, New South Wales in the late 1960s. Following a change of ownership, it came into the hands of John Riley, who performed with the restoration of the chassis and the lovely sports-touring coachwork in the 1980s. In the 1990s, the car came to the UK, with subsequent owners well-documented via correspondence, service records, and V5C registrations.
