    Default Caravelle For Sale - Ebay Aus.

    Its a bit obscurely listed. Looks to have surface rust but seems fairly solid in the photos. No motor though.

    What are you telling us for? You should be keeping that one to yourself. That's the perfect candidate for your mid mount V6 idea.

    You need to find a mate in Romsey with a big back yard that she can't see into.

    Yeah, but what are the odds of finding a Renault sympathetic mate that lives in Romsey with a big back yard that has no wife to nag him about cars...oh wait...

    There's three Floride/Caravelles for sale at the moment.
    This one on ebay and gumtree has one in Melb & Perth.
    They all look like rust buckets to me.

    The one on ebay looks like it has started to be rubbed down and the bare metal has then rusted.
    Of course it could still have bad rust in all the wrong places AS WELL as the surface rust....

    Is the gold in the engine compartment an original color?

    Given that the gold is over sprayed onto the engine mounts I say non original. I reckon the original color would be Bleu Narvic and it is IMHO a 1961 Floride.

    John 63-1092 will know more.

    Don't know what year it is or what original colour is either.
    Hard top is for a coupe (bolt on) that's all I can see from the back pic's.
    Dont really care about any of the cars that are for sale, though the FlorideS in the US at $600 is of interest, if only it was in Melb.

    Had a chat with the owner and having a look at the Gumtree Floride tomorrow. Local advert.

    1962 Renault Floride Coupe(Convertible) | Cars, Vans & Utes | Gumtree Australia Mandurah Area - Falcon | 1107736649

    Anything I should know to look for?
    He said it is almost complete. Yes the last owner 20 years ago attempted to fit something in the front. presume for radiator.
    He has a fleet of Renault - caravelle, 8, 10, 25, feugo, etc

    A few $100 parts car and pay a few $1000 to freight over, don't think so.
    Its still a rusty Caravelle made from the left over Floride parts bin and called a FlorideS which is its desire. Most Florides are coupes over here and its getting hard to find all the correct parts to make a true Floride convertible, or to convert to Caravelle cooling set up.
    Anyone have a complete set of chrome fittings for hard top and soft top or any of the fittings at all that you have sitting in your garage and don't really need, I'm your man, send a PM and I'll send money for any bits.
