1913 Delage Ai Skiff.

Chassis Number: 4791
Engine Number: 6775
Registration number 8656PE

Under the current ownership for over a decade & now coming to market due to the owner approaching 90 years of age: This delightful car is in impeccable running condition & has done less the 1000 miles each year during the last 10 years; Most of these miles being done on summer trips to Brittany by way of the Plymouth Roscoff Ferry.

The car is fitted with a light skiff style body by little known coach builder Keith Hill of Brecon. one of the early owners being a southern welsh doctor. There is comfortable seating for two up front plus two in the dickey area behind making it a true four seater.

The car abounds with period touches being festooned in brass wherever one looks. Artillery wooden wheels are fitted & a spare beaded edge tyre carried on the running board. A full set of period instruments are mounted to the dash including a Delage badged Elliot style speedometer.

The car is mechanically superb having been extensively rebuilt by the previous owner. The engine of 2. 3 litres & four cylinders starts instantly & runs in near silence. ignition being provided by the magneto. The 'box is easy to master with four forward speeds; reverse being fount in front of first as on later Delages. The car shows a surprising turn of speed considering its age cantering along in a relaxed manner at 50MPH & 60 being easily attainable. Steering is light & the whole experience a vintage driving delight with thumbs up being given by everyone we encountered.

The skiff body work is particularly pretty & delicate suiting the car very well. There are tonneau covers for the front & rear along with an easily assembled hood for inclement motoring. Two wheel brakes to the rear are standard & one does well to augment braking by employing the hand brake in tandem with the foot brake for more rigorous stopping powers. Oil pressure when hot runs at a healthy 30psi. The Boyce motometer temperature gauge mounted atop the radiator never came close to getting hot.

The car is booked for a family event later in the summer but may be available prior to that provided the price is at or close to full asking. The car is simply a delight to drive & very evocative of Edwardian motoring. An assortment of history comes with the car including a VSCC dating plaque & bills for various things that have been attended to over the years. The best bit is just how useable this car is easily eating up 200 mile days & not greatly impeding modern traffic.
