    Default Heidelberg CKD production

    Does anyone remember the days of Renault and Peugeot assembly in Heidelberg?.
    Was it in Waterdale Road?.
    Is there a link to this specific subject?.
    For the history books -

    Type this into the search box and some info will be revealed: "Renault Factory at West Heidelberg. Local History."

    Factory was located in Dougherty Road Heidelberg West. I worked that area and used the case wood to build all sorts of things including the Benches in my garage. I also posted many advertisements that appeared in the Heidleberger both about the Factory and the employment adds for staff to apply. Kim worked on the line at one stage and a lot of that was written up in a nostalgia thread started by Simon years back. I think it still survives but not easy to find old threads these days..

    Yeah, itís history should be retold and updated before itís too late.
    I read something about CitroŽn preceding Renault. Do you know anything about that, is it true?.
    I was hoping to flush out more info because my recollection is fading beyond commuting along Bell St and wishing I could afford a 16TS .

    Sounds like the panel gaps were as bad as the P76 V8 I had.
