1956 Renault Dauphine - early UK spec Barn Find For Sale

For sale is this genuine UK specification, UK registered, Right-Hand-Drive, low mileage and extremely rare Renault Dauphine, in superb, complete and original order but in need of paintwork attention and recommissioning, having been languishing in a dry barn for many years.

This important motor car was built in week 3 of November 1956, the first year of production, and is believed to be only the third car imported into the UK.

With only 14847 miles recorded since new and only 29 Dauphines currently on the road, this car is the oldest and lowest mileage RHD Dauphine known to survive.

The car was last used in 1962, since which time it was stored away until 19th March 2001, when the owner subjected the car to a light body restoration that sadly, was never completed. At this point, it appears that the interior was mostly removed and perfectly preserved (it's all there, wrapped in cloth) whilst the bodywork was subjected to some restoration, which includes the fabrication of new door bottoms and a coat or two of grey primer. Whilst never completed, the standard of preparation and masking was excellent and the door shuts, underbonnet and boot areas retain their original high-gloss Cherry Red paint finish. Today, the car awaits a re-visit of the exterior paintwork, a refitting of interior and exterior trim and a light recommissioning of the 845cc engine and running gear.

The car is complete and in remarkable order given its age, with all interior trim and brightwork in absolutely fantastic order.

With a 3 speed manual gearbox, its original wheelbrace still fitted beside the engine (an early production feature) and on its original Michelin ZX tyres, this significant piece of French motoring history richly deserves an enthusiastic and appreciative new owner with the ability to return her to the road without it costing the equivalent of the French National Debt.

Serious enquiries only please, or offers in excess of £5500.00 would be welcomed
