1955 Renault 4CV. French Blue with red leather upholstery. This Renault 4CV is now a very rare classic, which has been restored at least twice during its life and which is packed with bags of Gallic charm. It is powered by a rear-mounted 747cc inline-four, driving the rear wheels through a three-speed manual transmission and has covered just 52, 000 miles. It is a very rare original Acton-built right-hand drive UK car. In its earlier life the 4CV was owned by the famed technical editor of Autosport magazine, John Bolster. As president of the Renault Owners Club for many years, Bolster kept the 4CV well maintained until he passed away in 1984, but also added some notable upgrades. Anything that was not strictly required was removed, and Bolster had a modified intake manifold and carburettor arrangement installed, along with some other changes to the engine setup. While the original motor produced around 21hp as standard, this car is understood to have an output of around 38bhp. After he passed away, it was donated by his wife to the Club, and a substantial restoration was carried out. Around 9 years ago, it was handed over to the Renault UK Heritage Collection, where it has been kept well maintained and has appeared at various new car launch events to showcase the marque’s history. It has been carefully stored in a dehumidified air chamber at a specialist storage and logistics company. The bodywork presents very well, with smart shut lines, and with all panels appearing straight and solid and the upholstery very original with a lovely patina. The dashboard and two-spoke steering wheel are entirely original, with an appeal that highlights the car’s storied provenance. In great mechanical condition, having been part of a working heritage fleet, this 4CV’s last routine maintenance was in September 2020 at 52, 177 miles, when the engine oil was changed, and the kingpins were re-greased, and has covered very minimal mileage since this date. The non transferable private number plate that is assigned to the vehicle stays with the car. This Renault 4CV is a wonderful French classic, which is now a very rare sight in the UK, with only a handful of Acton-built 750 models believed to be remaining. Having formed part of a well-maintained heritage collection in recent years, this 4CV is a strong runner, and should prove to be a reliable occasional runabout. Given its intriguing provenance and light engine tuning, it arguably stands out among other examples, and is set to delight its next owner whenever they get behind the wheel. Although now tax and mot exempt a fresh mot will be applied upon sale for your own peace of mind. Absolutely any inspection welcome. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Part exchange considered. Finance arranged. Free U. K mainland delivery. Please contact us for any further information. Lots more pictures on our website and Facebook page.
