This gorgeous specimen of a car was seen in the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the 2015 SEMA Show. If you were there, you likely stopped for a minute and admired this work of art. This boattail speedster takes the styling of several manufacturers: Auburn, Delahaye and Bugatti.
Owned by Terry Cook, the body of this 1937 automobile is a Delahaye. Painted and built by Brown’s Metal Mods in Port Leyden, NY, the Delahaye features a treatment of House of Kolor Blueblood Red and S2BC25 Jet Black.
The car features a 302 Ford engine and C4 automatic transmission. the car’s chassis was done by Fat Man Fabrications in Mint Hill, NC.
Mark Silich of The Finishing Touch in Chicago handled the plating on the car, while Rich Perez of RP Interiors in Horseheads, NY did the work on the leather and top.
The car’s Hispano Suiza stork hood ornament and Hudson tail lights were done by Don Sommer of American Arrow out of Clawson, MI. And lastly, the fender trim on the car was done by Tommy Caruso of Contour Metal Shaping in Plainfield, NJ.
This 1937 Boattail Speedster had a lot of different hands on it in order to make it what it is today. We think you’ll agree that it turned out quite well. The only question we have left about it is how do you change a flat tire?
