Diana Dors' Delahaye Type 175 Roadster to be auctioned

She was born Diana Mary Fluck. She was the English version of Jayne Mansfield or Marlyn Monroe.
She had a career as an actor. She could act. And she liked big cars. Her Delahaye Type 175 Roadster is going for auction.

From Wikipedia:
According to Dors's autobiography, she was once asked and readily agreed to open a fête in her home town of Swindon, England. Prior to the festivities,
Dors lunched with the local vicar, during which she informed him that her real name was Diana Fluck.
The vicar became somewhat worried about his planned speech. After lunch, they arrived at the fête at the appointed time.
The vicar, totally unnerved about mispronouncing "Fluck", introduced Diana with these immortal words:
“Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that I introduce to you our star guest. We all love her, especially as she is our local girl. I therefore feel it right to introduce her by her real name; Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome the very lovely Miss Diana Clunt."
