Based in Levallois-Perret near Paris, Franay was a famous French coachbuilder founded in 1903 by Jean-Baptiste Franay and later overtaken by his son Marius. Franay’s designs were featured on prestigious chassis such as the Delahaye Type 135, and also numerous Bentley, Delage, Hispano-Suiza and Rolls-Royce models. Franay became a specialist for coupes and chauffeured, high-end vehicles in the 1930s, always fitting prestigious chassis. After World War II, Franay collaborated with Bentley and Rolls Royce and its car body production stopped in late 1955.
