Having been sold by a local dealer in April 1984 this lovely 5 covered only 14300 miles before being laid up in a barn in 1990 and was only recently unearthed due to the barn being rebuilt! It was a great find and after a bit of work and cleaning I was amazed to find a 100% original rust free shell, with everything working as it left the factory and a near perfect interior (missing pass headrest). It is complete with dealer plates, logo and handbooks. The brakes just required new fluid and are still on original linings, the tyres are also the factory Michelin xzx and due to being out of sunlight for 28 yrs are not perished or out of shape. The engine runs like a swiss watch and the gearbox is surprisingly smooth for an 80's renault auto. The mechanical condition reflects the low mileage, the exhaust centre pipe and rear silencer will need replacing though.
As you can see in the pics, to move it from the barn someone thought up the most ridiculous way to break into it (normal people just break a window) so it will require a driver's door and a repair to the rear quarter, the tailgate also has a small dent and is missing the number plate light cover. is a shame about the damage but it's not a bad job to repair, just not one I can complete anytime soon with other on going projects.
Please call for any information or more pics. I would recommend viewing and have access to a ramp so it can be fully inspected.
