French Connection: 1956 Renault 4CV

I’ve got to be honest with you guys today and admit that I’m really not an expert on the Renault 4CV market — and the going rate for one of the surviving examples of the million 4CVs produced from 1947 through 1961 is beyond my limited understanding…but…this next car just feels like a good deal compared to the other rear-engined aircooled crap littering the internet auction sites. Find this 1956 Renault 4CV offered for $11,500 in San Diego, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

CLASSIC 1956 Renault 4CV EXCELLENT Condition! Rare and beautiful! If you want something unique that’s a head turner here it is! Great gas mileage too! It’s not a speed demon but super fun to drive around the city or beach on the weekends. Rebuilt engine, generator, starter and new battery, beautiful custom paint, new interior including front seats, carpet kit, headliner and suede door panels. Back seat is in good condition and is original! So many new parts on this car, chrome hood hinges front & rear, door handles, door seals, emblems, stainless steel door runners, stainless steel front & rear bumpers and so much more. Lots of detail on this car! There are very few of these in the US. This one even has the orginal Yellow and black California plates! Everything looks excellent on this car! Solid floor boards but there is a little bubling in lower corners of the front doors. This would be very easy to cut out and repaint doors to make perfect but not very noticeable to drive as is. NO expense was spared in the restoration of this car. Current registrtation and ready to roll!
