A simply stunning early large engined 5 litre Renault. This car is in impeccable condition having been carefully conserved & maintained over several decades by the current oner who is now ready to part with it due to his advancing years. Festooned with brass wherever one looks, the spectacle as a whole is a real eye full.
The Engine at just under 5 litres capacity starts easily & runs beautifully. An elecrtic starter is fitted but I find it rather more fun to swing it on the handle with recourse to the decompression lever. Gears are 4 forward speeds in a sequentlal gate with reverse being found by pulling the lever aftwards.
The car has light patination of the right type & was featured prominently in the Mr Selfridge series. It sits on Warland detatchable rim wheels a spare of which is mounted to the running board. Splendid brass lamps adorn the front of the car & an assortment of other period lamps are found in the appropriate locations along with some modern lights for safe night time running which could easily be removed. A Phares Besnard acetylene generator is mounted to the running board.
To the interior is nicely worn buttoned maroon leather with red carpets. A full length hood easily unfurls for inclement motoring. This is a big powerful Edwardian car that compares well as a sort of Gallic Silver Ghost. It is easy to drive & a pleasure to run along B roads in. It was formerly a part of the renowend Sword collection a number of which cars we have handled over the years.
