Factory slammed: 1956 Renault 4CV

We have always liked the factory “lowrider” look of this car, not only for the height from the ground but also for its beautiful reverse channel wheels, usually painted in contrast with the rest of the car.

It’s called Renault 4CV and it was produced from 1946 to 1961, but it was however secretely designed by Renault under the german occupation during the WWII. The peculiarity of this car were the four doors, very rare to find on a car of this size: such doors, mated with a rear 747 c.c. engine, made this car a very practical vehicle for the family. Of course, the VW Beetle had a great influence on the conception of this little Renault.

This particular car seems in almost-concours conditions: the seller says that the engine has been fully rebuilt using period correct parts with an optional Sofica carburetor, and that the wjole car has been redone: he also sys that interiors have been restored by Renault and he has some invoices which proof that. The Cream/Burgundy combo is stunning. Find it for sale at €8,900 (today $12,500) here in Crêches-sur-Saône, France.
