    You can do a lot with a 6V alternator. Did you see the WHEELS?

    They were promoted as being available, the "Deluxe Sports Convertible", but I've never seen one.

    bummer!
    I corresponded briefly (decades ago) with someone who had their restoration (& upgrade to Dauphine-Gordini mechanicals) of one written up in one of the British classic car monthlies. I was sort of planning to bribe them out of it but got diverted.
    cheers! Peter

    Not that I'm aware of. I heard of kits being available sometime in the past too but none of the suppliers I know in France have advertised them in my time. It would be fun.

    I saw TWO Mokes yesterday in Perth, reminding me that you can have that sort of fun already! Normally it is about one per year.

    Hi,

    Here is a nice looking decapotable in France for 29,000 Euros. They must be scarce there also.

    RENAULT 4CV 1062 21 CH 1952 Essence occasion - La boisse - Ain 01

Overall it looks lovely to me
    cheers,

    It's a neat car, if a bitser.

    The last of the R1060 models might have had that number plate holder - my early R1062 (November 1950, it is said...) is the same at the back.

    I hadn't noticed the lack of that grill to let the horn noise out.

    Be interesting to see whether it has a BP3 or a 289 transmission.

    I reckon that is a neat and all-together looking car as well. And guessing with the Dauphine motor, it would also likely have a matching Dauphine 'box. Also it looks like an 8 volt battery, I've not seen one of those for years.

    I know little about the finer details of the mighty 4CV but is that the correct gear knob..? methink it looks like a vent knob.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen them in that shape before on 4CV's but mine was just a off white round knob from memory. The photo isn't too clear ...

    The early cars had a gearknob that was very like the vent knob. However it had a flatter top than the one in the car, which looks like a scaled down early VW item. So, it is similar to my 1951 knob but not the same.

    You're right by golly. Like you, I haven't seen an 8V battery for years.

    Well here is an up to date pic of my 1958 Renault 4cv, taken at the All French Car Day in Sydney in July. Was judged best French car on the day.

    Very nice Roger. Those fine white lines on the sidewalls have worked SO well too.

    Looks like something that Noddy and Big Ears would be driving.

    The January 2016 edition(bit ahead of itself) of the English Classic & sports car mag has a feature on the 4l international at Thenay.
    Plenty of nice pictures of Quatrelles.
    Also has buying guide for cx's, mag is a bit dear to buy but worth leafing through.
