    It would make for an interesting project no doubt, but not one for me thanks as I like to drive my cars. Unless I were to start a Museum...

    You'd be brave to tackle that lot. It's a remarkable stash mind you.

    Never ceases to amaze me what is out there.

    Oh yes, praised be project Dauphenstein, I haven't lost sight of that and have amassed many parts for same.

    In a strange twist of fate, on my very first trip to Paris (pre French cars for me) I stayed in an apartment at 14 Rue Dauphine, Saint Germain. If I were a believer in a higher power (which I ain't) it would appear I was being guided by the Renault Gods, maybe Louis himself...

    Sorry about the hijack Redbacks but I'm sure the other Renault god Simon will chime in with all the relavent data for this car, probably including the name of the last owner's mother's maiden name and her favourite perfume..

    Three bidders so at least three potential restorers. Very brave!

    Ah, I think that you misconstrue the entrails. In a clearer message than most such guidance, you are being advised that you will come to rue the day that you essayed forth on Dauphine modification.

    To return from the continued hijack, surely the model name is clear: 'the X2' (I understand that a Holden executive from the sixties was a keen vintage Renault enthusiast & borrowed the name).

    cheers! Peter

    I told a friend that has three '20s Renaults in various states of restoration about these two. At the price so far, and given the rarity of spares, these wrecks would be great value.

    This sort of stuff comes at the far end of the bell curve of Renault knowledge for me. So I've really got no idea. Although it looks like the resale of a collection sold (or at least advertised) a couple of years ago. Back then some of the collection was inside, the one with the late model bonnet being a Type PG with a six cylinder motor (although it is noted a couple of the pictured motors are fours, with no six pictured). In Australia any Renault of this era is rare, due to import taxes on full imports through the 1920's, so you don't see a lot (or any for that matter) of them around in a running condition.

    Attached is a pic from the advert at the time, it certainly looks like the same car.

    Thanks Simon:
    Could it be one of these?

    1920'S Renault. Hey Simon what is it and how rare is it?-24_renault-labourdette-skiff-dv-10-pbc_001.jpg

    In the mid 1920s, Carrosserie Henri Labourdette built several torpedo skiffs on small Renault chassis. This car is believed to be the only Labourdette short chassis 'boattail' to survive. Mahogany was used not just for the deck, dash and floors, but also for the internal structure of the body. In general, these skiffs cost several times the cost of a completed Renault factory car with more lavish touring style coachwork. Well-healed owners of large chassis custom-bodied cars could now own a self-driven ruanbout built with the same flair as their chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce or Hispano-Suiza. This 950cc 4-cylinder 6CV Renault with its stylish trademark front end boasts the signature Labourdette flying wings, Marchal headlamps and three seat configuration. It is typical of the French design style that still exists to this day at Renault.

    There is a 1926 (approx.) NO in Adelaide, Weyman body, excellent condition etc. UK built, so easier/affordable to import I guess.

    They are right at the end of my bell curve too, but could be pre-1920 - noting one bonnet with no lozenge badge but just a name.

    It looks like it was a diamond shaped badge, just the top and bottom broken off. Note there is also a pre-1925 round badge on one of the other bonnets as well. In one of the previous sale pics there was also a pic of the oval plate, identifying one car as a Type PG, so there would appear to be an amalgam of parts with the collection, all various models and eras.

    You're right I think about the broken diamond badge! I imagine there might be some gold in there for the right buyer. But you'd need to know your stuff to find the other Renault bits and pieces lying around.

    As I said, it is amazing what is around.
