1958 Renault 4CV Luxe Model (LHD)


  • Nevada based car 
  • Folders of invoices 
  • Over $50,000 spent on the restoration and maintenance 


This small, rear-engined, four-door was covertly designed during WWII and became a vital tool in France's post-war rebuild and in getting working-class France back on the road. It became the first French car to surpass one million units sold and featured suicide doors, chic styling and an economic 747cc engine. 

This later 1958 model has spent most of its life in the dry state of Nevada before travelling to California where it was restored over the late 90s and early 00s. It was imported to the UK in 2017 and currently resides in the English Riviera.

A million units were produced over a 14-year period however few 4CVs have survived the test of time. 

This car has stood strong thanks to its life in the dry state of Nevada and then restoration in California before arriving in the UK. It's a rare car in the UK and with a little love and time, it could be a great addition to any garage.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
