College Cars: 1937 Delage D8-120 Drop Head Coupe

This is College Cars, a recurring feature about the Academy of Art University car collection. Today we look at this 1937 Delage D8-120.

This Delage is one of only 12 D8-120 Drop Head Coupes built by Henri Chapron. It's powered by a 115-horsepower overhead valve straight-8 engine turning the wheels through a Cotal 4-speed pre-selective transmission. This car was purchased by the Academy of Art University at the Gooding & Co. auction in Arizona in 2010 for the princely sum of $605,000.
