1960 Renault 4CV

France's answer to the VW Beetle, the Renault 4CV (French: quatre chevaux) was a rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive, four-door supermini - but whereas the Beetle had only two doors, the 4CV had four. It was presented to the public and media at the 1946 Paris Motor Show and was sold from August 1947 to July 1961. The 4CV and had front 'suicide' doors, all-independent suspension and rack-and-pinion steering, and was the first French car to sell over a million units. 'CV' is the abbreviation of cheveaux-vapeur, the French equivalent of 'horsepower' as a unit of power. The name 4CV thus refers to the car's tax horsepower.

This Example

Description by seller:
Recently bought from the original owner complete with 1960 HP (Hire Purchase) document from Currie Motors in Eloff Street, Johannesburg. Unfortunately, the car is no longer registered but still wears its black-and-white TU14108 number plate. The car was very complete and rust-free when bought, then was stripped for a repaint and the engine sent off to the engineers. The body has come back in a period blue hue but sadly the engineering firm went under and disappeared - along with the engine. The rest, including gearbox, glass, suspension, trim and interior are packed alongside the car. Very solid restoration project.

This Renault 4CV is available to view in Johannesburg by appointment.
