1937 Delage D8-120 Aérosport Coupe

One of the finest coach-built streamlined automobiles ever designed, the Delage D8-120 Aérosport Coupe was introduced at the Paris Salon in 1936. Only twelve of these cars were made before production was halted by the war in 1939. After extensive research, David Cooper concluded that this car, shown in a photograph taken outside the 1937 Paris Salon, was owned by Standard Oil Heiress Millicent Rogers. Cooper Technica is restoring the Aérosport and expects to complete it in 2015.
