    Do we have any members that live close by that could go take a look?

    When we were there we drove past and saw 403's, 203's and R8's and 10's from the side road. We went in and asked if they had any French cars and they said no. We said are you sure, we could see Renaults and Peugeots from the road. He said oh yeah we have Renaults and Peugeots but no French cars. We asked Any Citroen? Yes he said. But we just had to remind ourselves there were no French cars.

    Best if someone could take a look.

    yes, somebody..?

    It's gotta be a van though. There are a couple of sedans up here at Drayton but if I'm going to restore a Juva its gotta be a van.

    That temptation is cruelty to Fregate owners. Mid-50s by the flasher design.

    And, did you see the Rouge Trinidad R8 to provide real style to the photograph?

Likely because of the hard short lives commercial vehicles generally have.

    Attached are pics of the Juvas that I know of, the beige pre-WW2 two-door from an SA FCD many years ago, a blue post-WW2 four-door in Victoria about 10 years ago, and a contemporary feature for the Nine.

    For the pre-WW2 Juva, there was also an Australian made tourer in the range, which is quite interesting given the early monocoque construction of the sedan versions. It's appearance being similar to the contemporary Ford Anglia Tourer. There was one in the Bay to Birdwood a few years ago from NT, and there was a rusty survivor awaiting restoration a few years ago out at Gawler.

    Another interesting one would be the four-door version that was restored by Renault Australia in the 1970's, the body being painted in the factory paint booth in its original pale grey colour.
    Hi Simon,

    The Renault Australia example was owned by the then National After Sales Manager (Pierre Keraudrin). I may have a photo of that one somewhere; also, I recall it might have been the subject of an article in the house magazine (Rapport).

    Cheers,

    It might be worth trying the address of the dealer, you never know what may still be in the basement :-)

    So, we all have to wonder "where is it now?".

    I guess if anyone linked here were to know, it would have been shared by now?

    It really would be interesting to find out what happened to the car, if it was completed, you would imagine it would have to be around somewhere. A shame that Renault Australia never got around to creating their own historic collection. (Article below ripped from the Renault Rapport magazine).

    Also it seems strange that the Juvaquatre then was more modern than a Fuego or a 25 is now :-)

    I note you did not refer to it as a sports convertible, with 4 hp

    All the more reason why I'll wait till I find a Dauphinoise, might be able to incorporate a big block Chev in the back.

    Anyway, I'm still having a love affair with my Fregate, damn fine car that..

    That's the one to get, uniquely Australian. It was actually called the Sports Tourer.

    Hi Simon,

    Yes, that was the issue for that motor car. Have to agree with you regarding the historic collection.

    I wish I had the foresight to ask the right questions around the time the factory was winding down for its final closure.

    Again, the same comment applies regarding a lead I received from the Sales Manager at Punt Road (John Angliss) regarding an elderly lady wanting to sell her late model 750. I followed up with an inspection of the car at her place, to discover it was an imported UK example purchased by the lady in question when she & her friend were touring the UK. It had 23,000 miles on the speedo.

    A good offer was made, which she promised to think about & get back to me. You know the rest of the story!

    Cheers,

    The Aussie Juva utility is so much more stylish than that!

    That's often always the way! At least you didn't find out later that the car was sold for less than your offer, then ended up getting trashed! :-)

    There seem to be a few nice "barn find" 750s out there - who knows one day you may just be in the right place at the right time and rediscover the car!

    The LPG version...make that town gas.


    It's interesting to note the shrapnel damage that looks like it came from within, or maybe straight through from the other side..

    The tears are outwards so either and explosion was in the van or the shrapnel went through from one side to the other. Unlikely? Surely the one in the guard would have had to go through 4 layers of the body if it was shrapnel.

    There's a hole in the charcoal burner as well, so it looks like source must be from the far side.

    As you say - a mighty powerful blast to make holes through so many layers...
