My 1985 Renault 4 F6 van is a cracking little commercial classic that could be used to promote a business, which is what i had initially bought it to do but never got around to it.
It is an original right hand drive version of the practical R4 with the 'giraffe roof hatch' at the rear for carrying long lengths of materials or ladders.
The original paint colour was white but was painted light green many years ago, certainly prior to 1984 as the old log book that i have states the colour as green.
Milometer is showing approx.104000 miles, the original tan coloured door cards and drivers seat are present but there is no passenger seat. The front bumper is also missing.
All four tyres were replaced for the MOT in 2016 so they are in very good condition, as were the headlights.
The tax disc on the windscreen shows it expired in June 2000 hence no previous mot history on the dvla website.
It will start from a boost pack as the battery needs replacing and run and drive fine through the gears.
Update 04/12/18: i have just driven her up for an MOT to see what will be required and she drives superbly for an older van, she has failed on the following items some of which are simple and some require a little bit of welding skill.
1) Windscreen wipers and washers - these were working when i checked them before heading for the test along with all the lights,horn etc but didn't want to know once on the test so i am presuming it is a fuse or at worst a new wiper motor. + new fuse and they now work again !
2) Welding will be required to the following places, rear underside of chassis on the nearside just behind the suspension mounting and the same on the offside. At the front of the drivers floorpan there is also a hole that will need plating as it is near the front suspension area.
3) The nearside front brake pipe needs replacing.
4) Requires a new cv boot on the nearside outer.
5) Requires a new track rod end ball joint due to excessive play.
The battery was left to trickle charge and she now starts off the battery without the boost pack.
So there you have it, not much required for an MOT if you have the sufficient skills to weld and some basic mechanical ability or if you have to use a garage at least you can get an idea on parts and labour for the work required. If you have any questions please ask.
