This extremely rare and unique 1901 Renault Type D, Series E motorcar has a 4 ½ horsepower De Dion - Bouton water-cooled engine which starts and runs perfectly. The vehicle was supplied new by the Roadway Autocar Company Ltd. of London who were the sole agents for Renault Freres and Mors cars and imported 12 Renaults that year, making it one of only a few left.
It has had some recommissioning work carried out as it previously didn’t run, which included the petrol tank and carburetor being cleaned and a new reverse gear machined and fitted.
The Renault starts and runs on the handle, it has a conventional running gear which includes a three speed tumbler gearbox and a reverse. The Renault has an oiler on the front of the car to lubricate it, it has trembler coil ignition, atmospheric inlet valve, a clutch and handbrake. It has been well maintained and showcases a lot of its original features including the paintwork and leather-bound seats. The bodywork is in great condition being made of a steel framed chassis with a wooden hand painted body. Previously we believe this vehicle was a two-seater which was modified to contain another seat and a rear-entrance tonneau.
 
The vehicle is supplied with various history dating from 1901 to 2006 with paperwork, photographs and a long list of previous owners from Army Major Captain Basil Emery to Chimney Sweep Mr. Barnes to Vincents Coachbuilders in 1927 who restored and maintained. It has participated in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run with its first participation in 1927, it did a successful run in 1928 and was photographed passing the White Horse pub in Reigate which was part of the original London to Brighton route.
This vehicle is in good working order and is a beautiful and rare piece of history which you don’t see often - unless you are passing through London on the first Sunday of November.
