    Default Found Renault 750 parts in Roof

    I bought a 1930's apartment in Melbourne.
    When doing some repairs found in the roof some Renault 750 parts.
    2 doors ( passenger side ) door pillar, pair rear guards, rear bumper, petrol tank, assorted trims, rear engine hood, rear seat, one front seat, steering wheel, hub caps and boxes of parts - shockers, springs etc.
    I have no interest in them - I am not a Reno person but I am sure someone could use them.
    I presume they are worth something.
    A friend said I should put up this post.
    If interested or need more info please ring me 0407880840.
    If I don't hear - I will be putting on ebay.

    What a fascinating little treasure trove. :-) A question - how do you know they are 750 parts? Are they labelled? in marked boxes? or are you familiar enough with car parts to be able to identify these? A couple of photos might help folk here?

    They were labelled reno 750,
    going by the shape of the door & google images I could identify / confirm the car.
    My guess is someone was buying the parts maybe from wreckers with the one day of restoring. but they were abandoned in the roof.
    Body parts are in good nick.

    I haven't taken any photos yet. To buy fixing up the apartment

    Thanks for making the time to join the forum and telling us about the parts. I know that you will be inundated with requests from all of the 750 fraternity that live around here.
    I have no interest in them but I am so gladdened by your generosity of spirit that felt that you deserve thanks.
    All the best with the reno (vation)

    Hi
    Gees I bet there are a few "genuine one owner, unmolested original condition " old cars that have been auctioned, which actually started life with less parts than you have here.
    Good luck Jaahn

    A radiator blind reduces the airflow through the radiator in cold weather helping the engine to reach it's operating temperature more quickly. The trick is to remember you have used it before the car boils!

    Assuming that you don't just have a twitch that generated another post: it's basically a roller blind mounted on the radiator, which, when unrolled, masks the radiator to the extent to which it is unrolled. Spring loaded on the roller &, in the case of the 4CV/750, operated remotely from the cabin via a cable as I recall (or misrecall).

    cheers! Peter

    I did actually thanks MG, and it looks better than the one I recently cut out but not sure how I'd be able to get it, especially at the moment with my less than favourable state of affairs
    I could also benefit from those trims that go along under the sill panels
    cheers,

    John

    Hi
    Perhaps I could just add a bit here for the younger audience.
    WE live in the wide brown land where the sun always shines(sort of) and see the cooling system as only trying to keep the motor cool. However in other countries, in winter, in the alps, etc the problem was to keep the motor and the occupants from getting too cold. The radiator blind was used for the purpose of restricting the air through the radiator to keep the heat in. Commonly fitted in the "good ol' days"
