    I didn't realise they sold Renault 16's over in the USA. Look at all the different french cars in the background of the photos too. Is this hotrod electrics place ??

    Hi Tim,

    The Ultimate DS? - I don't understand...? It's not a 69...?

    LOL

    Looks to be rust free - fantastic candidate for a restoration. I just love the second front nose... beautiful.

    Cheers,

    I know....I love that second nose. I've half wondered about converting my '68 but, alas, it deserves to be a '68.

    I'm hoping to own a couple of ultimate DSs before I retire! At the moment my 68 21 Pallas BVH is having everything we can find, done. It was already a lovely drive, so should be spectacular when it comes back together. I've never purchased so many boots, seals in one go! So nice to have the air-conditioning removed - that lovely dash can now breathe! One complete air-conditioning unit up for grabs if anyone is interested! It was working well and very cold. 3 condensers. Rack is now in. Found a lovely original BVH reservoir to replace the original that got 'sucked in'. Cleaning, Cleaning, Cleaning is a huge job after so many years (hey Michael, check out the carpet!). Such a great car. Don't worry - that mirror will disappear when the restored dash and new windscreen is fitted. If you have a slopey dash that needs restoring, get it to the magicians at Dash Doctor! The work they do is incredible. And reasonably priced. I thought the skirting below the dash would have been trashed by the aftermarket air conditioner installation - but no! Thank goodness. All good.

    Gawd, no. I wish. I think I know the owner and the car- both seem familiar. Daffy would probably have a better idea.

    And yah, we got the R16, '68-'74 I think. 4 speed and automatic, but no 5 speed and no super duper deluxe versions. We also got the R5, R8, R10, R11, R12, R15, R17, R18 and R21. There was also that weird cobbled-up version of the R25. Note that virtually none of these are on the street or in the junkyards now.


    Edit- the R12 would have been '72 for it's last year here. The car was basically unmodifiable to meet our bumper impact regs past that point.

    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    If that's who I think that is, that's one of his CXs. That's what it looks like, anyway. If you look further back, you see a later VW Rabbit (Golf to you guys).

    That car has been in pieces for most of the last 25 years that I know of.

    Pieces of several cars by the look of it.

    Probably.
    It was sans engine, sitting for years.
    I don't know who put it back together.
    But I do know it did get put back together because it was too good to dismantle.
    I don't know much more about it.
