    Default Is this a Renault? 1960 Henny for sale in USA

    I thought you Renault folks may be interested to see this, (i'm just a vagrant from the Peugeot side of the forum)

    Interesting pictures show a 1950's 203 Peugeot steering wheel and column mount lights & horn switch.

    It says manufactured in USA. I had no idea of that history.

    Have slightly wanted a Henny Kilowatt for some time, but they were built in the USA & I know of none here. (And no to the obvious question: the effort of buying one there shipping it here seems all too hard).

    Well, thanks for enlightening me.

    I didn't get the significance of "Has no batteries" until I read your link.

    Serious food for thought for a retro-eCar-project.

    72 Volts - hmm, a vehicle that light with all the batteries down low & modern technology might blow away a Tesla I suspect.

    Scary fun prospect

    Feel Good Cars in Canada carried out a modern reproduction of the Henney Kilowatt in the early 2000's, they were on the prowl for good Dauphine rollers apparently to go into production. However only a handful were completed before the company changed direction to ZENN.

    That is a very rare car and due to its engineering, rather collectable. You don't get much for $10K, I'm suggesting this would be a great buy!
