Another Delahaye for today? Oh, go on then.

Meet one of the two 165s, roadgoing versions (by Figoni et Falaschi ) of the V12 engined 145. Interestingly, one of these was shipped to America for the 1938 New York World’s fair but then found itself stuck in fiscal limbo for six years before turning up in California with a Cadillac V8 and matching automatic box. Eventually it was reunited with the V12 originally intended for it and normal service was restored.

Yes, it has a Cotal gearbox. Of course it has.
