    Default Another vintage Renault truck has surfaced

    Details are scant at this time but another pre-1925 Renault truck has surfaced in Victoria, can anyone identify it by the oval plate.

    Thanks Philip, I would think 1922 would be about right, I'll ask the new owner for some pics for confirmation.

    It looks like a badly punched 2. Had a fiddle with colours and contrast to get a clearer view, but it's still ordinary

    INMHO the back the front 3 is similar to the punched denotation on similar peugeots of same era ,(See article on the 1915 peugeot racer sold recently) which have the same "#" back and front of the actual number , i guess to prevent someone adding numbers , later pugs had an x fore and aft of the number
