Once in a while, we have to post a foreign-made automobile.
This one-of-a-kind was owned by actress Diana Dors.
Diana Dors purchased this 1949 Delahaye Type 175 Roadster very early in her acting career when she was just 17 years old! She paid $13,904.00 for the roadster (equivalent to $150,755.00 today) before she’d even passed her driving test! The car was sold at auction in 2011 for $3,090,620.00 (equivalent to $3,575,498.00 today). Diana Dors made a lot of money early on because she was considered to be Britain’s answer to Marilyn Monroe despite the fact that she looked more like Jayne Mansfield… either way… she was a blonde bombshell!
Lovely all around!
