French Fried Wagon: 1986 Renault 4

This is a 1986 Renault 4. It is a unique car in many ways. 

The stick shifter is mounted on the dash. The ground clearance is higher than most cars, so it does pretty well off road. It was Renault’s first mass produced “hatchback”. 

The design did not change over the entire production period of this car so it’s a relatively new classic car that looks like it’s from the 60s. 

It has a canvas roof that can be removed to make a full sunroof over the cab. There is no rust anywhere and the paint is in excellent shape. 

The price for this one is $6,900
