    Wow! Those photos are fantastic! They'd come in handy if you were restoring one from pieces, showing how it's all meant to go. Early Renaults like their heavy duty "toothpick" gear levers don't they! I see the heater uses the same large heater core as the 4CV (the radiator). Yep, you definitely need one of these MG, one day ...

    Pffft! The only difficult part would be making the locking fuel cap..RENAULT Juvaquatre Dauphinoise - 1958...Oh no!-photo_72687.jpg

    I have to note that the Juva is vastly different in design and construction to the Fregate, chalk and cheese really.

    Some other things to note...


    The restorer has left quite a heavy orange peel in the paint, presumably to replicate the 'commercial vehicle' standard of the day. Also note how they headed the screws..top marks.



    And the coir matting is interesting, would that be standard equipment of the day..?

    They both appear far more complex than a rear engine Renault to me

    That's a nice badge too and I agree with the ocd fitment of the screws. It's the little things that make the difference...

    Just looking Sunroof but no plans for another car in the family in the foreseeable future, my focus from here on has to be getting set up for retirement or at least get out of the high pressure industry I work in...maybe I could grow flowers of something as others have done.

    Believe me if you grow flowers you most definitely won't have time for cars. Some times not even for sleep. Stick to what your doing only a few years to go.

    If your venture growing flowers is as quick and successful as your Fregate restoration, you'll need a neat little van to cart them around in......

    The question remains, were there any Dauphinoise (commercials) bought to our shores..? If so where is one..?

    That’s a very hard question to answer, so a maybe from me, as I’ve not seen and real evidence to demonstrate a yes or no answer. The sales numbers of Renault commercials, as demonstrated by Russell’s sales figures above, were in tens of cars per annum rather than hundreds, and petered out in the late 1950’s (eight commercials over the period from 1956 to 1960). Also, unlike the tractor range, Colorale range, and the R2070 - 760 - Panel Van, I’ve not found anything that seems to promote the Fourgonette or Dauphinoise in Australia in that period. As always, I’m happy to be surprised by something turning up, such as the R2070 that AF user "Hometurn" turned up in NSW sometime ago!

    Three Renault commercials were sold January 1955. Which models are you looking for? I do a fair bit of 1950's Peugeot research and I often come across Renault stuff.

    Hi Russell, I'm not exactly 'looking' as such just curious if there were any here in Oz.

    I don't have any evil twin living in my head, booted him and his mates out long ago..

    But I sure would fancy one of these little beauties.

    Hmmm, just came across this little phrase pertaining to Juva sales for Australia in 1939..

    4: Australie
    En 1939 est fabriquée à Billancourt, une série spéciale de 53 coach à conduite à droite,
    destinée au marché Australien cette série sera du type type BFJ1.

    Rough translation:-

    In 1939 is manufactured in Billancourt, a special series of 53 coach to driving on the right.

    intended for the Australian market this series will be of the type BFJ1.
