Footnotes

  • No doubt it was Delahaye's well deserved reputation for quality and reliability that prompted Mrs C A McCall of Barrowby Grange, Kirkby Overblow near Harrogate to purchase this 10/12hp model for general estate duties in 1912. Priced at £254, Delahaye's Type 47 was powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine driving via a three-speed gearbox. This car was supplied by the UK concessionaire H M Hobson Ltd, manufacturers of the Claudel-Hobson carburettor. At this time many motorists objected to a fee being charged for obtaining a registration number, so Mrs McCall registered her car in Kildare, Ireland, deliberately creating a lot of extra work for the despised licensing authorities.

    Around 1950 the Delahaye was rediscovered in a barn (still carrying a 1922 tax disc) and purchased by Flying Officer J Noakes, who entered it in numerous events around Yorkshire and also participated in the historic 'Coronation Rally' on 7th June 1953. Correspondence in the accompanying history file shows that by 1954 the Delahaye was on display at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu where it remained for many years. In 1962, 'IO 802' was chosen to feature in a limited edition of collectors' cards issued by Weston Biscuits.

    The Delahaye passed to a Scottish collector in the 1970s and in 2004, by quirk of fate, returned to the Harrogate area. Since then it has participated in various VCC rallies and HCVS events, including the Trans-Pennine and London to Brighton Runs, as well as classic vehicle local shows. Renovation carried out includes a partial engine rebuild in 2008 (new valves, valve springs and piston rings), a magneto rebuild in 2004, and a recent repaint of the wings and bonnet. The interior leather upholstery remains original. The engine is said to run well, propelling the Delahaye 'up hill and down dale' at 28mph, while the gearbox is described as a delight to use. Reducing his collection, the vendor hopes that the new owner will enjoy this unique and substantially original vehicle as much as he has. Last taxed in 2010, the car is offered with the aforementioned history file, VCC dating certificate, old-style logbook, sundry bills and a V5C document.
