DELAGE HISTORY

Before ruthless, post war taxation system toppled Paris from its once proud position as the World centre of Women's fashion and proud cars - one marque, Delage, seemed to link these two diverse forms of art more closely together.

La Belle Delage became special favorites among the best dressed women in Paris, despite some counter attractions by the more expensive Hispano-Suiza and Isotta-Fraschini.

Women in particular found their Delages not only pleasing to the eye, but equally delightful to drive with light, responsive controls, good independent front suspension, while Delage were among the first to fit all synchromesh gearboxes, long before the war.

Louis Delage, talented artist-engineer grew up in the French province of Cognac, where he was born in 1874. Only hard work and determination to save every Franc he could lay his hands on, enabled the youthful Delage to rise from the comparative poverty of a working class home to become one of the great motorcar manufacturers of France.

Sporting interests did not prevent Louis Delage from continuing to improve the range ofhis vehicles. At the 1923 October Salon Show, a new improvement of model 11CV appeared - the DI, replacing the DE.

The DI was one of those Vehicles that led to the fame of Delage. Its mechanical aspect, well designed and simple was of excellent quality.
