1947 Delahaye 148L built by Oblin in Brussel. Built on a 1947 Delahaye 148L chassis, it received a coachbuilt body with full fadeaway fenders, fenderskirts and a plastic roof that looked like the canopy of a submarine. Built in 1947, it was commissioned by the commander of one of the so-called Congo boats – ships on the line between Antwerp and Matadi, a port in the former Belgian colony. The canopy protected the driver and passenger from wind and rain.[1]
