1962 Renault Super 5 Tractor


  • Recent sympathetic restoration
  • Believed to be once owned by a tractor museum in London
  • Handsome bodywork

The Appeal

Produced between the years of 1962 and 1965, the Super 5 was a Row-Crop tractor manufactured with excellent technical specification. Undeniably one of the great tractors in the Renault line-up, it has earned a fantastic reputation for its reliability and dependability.

The lovely example we have presented here has reportedly been sympathetically restored to a retain much of the vehicles originality and charm, and the current keeper believes that the vehicle used to belong to a tractor museum located in London.

  • No service history records present of the vehicle
  • The vehicle is believed to have been owned by a tractor museum in London

  • Original Renault badge present and in good form, as well as the Super 5 side mounted badge on the left side of the vehicle 
  • All four wheels show good paintwork with gentle signs of corrosion beneath the paint, and all four tyres have some heavy signs of cracking throughout and would require replacement before use
  • Engine cover remains in good health, again with some patina noticed beneath the paintwork, radiating character
  • Engine block, transmission and frame all colour-coded to the body panels and wheels
  • Original dashboard gauge is present and shows some heavy patina from its age

The Mechanics 

  • 2.3-litre, 3 cylinder diesel engine

  • Mechanical steering
  • Drum brakes
  • 6-speed manual transmission, 6 forward gears and 1 reverse

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.


Car & Classic 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 £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

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.
