 Cotal versus Wilson -- More Faget-Varnet Delahayes

Just a couple of minor corrections: The Cotal gearbox is not a "preselector" gearbox; that is the Wilson. The Cotal allows shifts without the clutch (except in 1st and reverse). With the Wilson Preselector you choose your gear and it is activated by the use of the clutch pedal. The two gearboxes are not at all alike, but are often confused.

I know of at least two Faget Varnet Delahaye Type 135 MS cabriolets (plus at least one coupe), so the one photographed at Pebble Beach can not be the only survivor.
