Today at least four examples of the 145 remain, including the 'Million Franc Car'. One of the road cars was returned to its original specification, while the other two still sport their Chapron bodies. An affectionate collector of French motor cars had owned the 'Million Franc Car' for over 15 years before he decided it was time to completely return it to its former glory. The restoration was conveniently timed so the car would be ready for the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, which celebrated Delahaye. Fortunately he decided to return the car to its Mille Miglia specification with large fenders, rather than the very ugly original look. Not only did he come to 'Pebble' to claim first in class, he also entered and raced the car in the Monterey Historics where it was more in its element. He also brought both Chapron bodied cars to Pebble and a later V12 engined type 165. It is rare to see one V12 Delahaye, making four on one day an absolute treat.
