    Built here actually but not too common these days. Price will depend upon condition if you can actually find one. Sweet cars....

    I'd guess anywhere from $5K (poor) to $10-15K (good) and more if in superb condition (count them on one hand), but I honestly don't think there are enough changing hands for even these guidelines to be too reliable. Be interesting to see what others think. They do change hands from time to time though - one nice example went from Vic to SA a few months ago for example.

    Simon or someone might even know how many were sold. I'd guess a few thousand at most. They were really just the last of the Dauphines, just before the R8 came along. It's about 55 years since the last one was sold.....

    I'd love a really nice one but the high cost of divorce etc etcÖ

    They are out there, but not very common. Nice, and pretty reliable if sorted. There's a good annual French Car Day in Melbourne, so if you go along and talk to all the owners, something might come out of the woodwork.

    PM me if you want a contact.

    Cheers

    The Dauphine G was fully imported for 1960, with only a few sold. Australian assembly of the updated 1961 model commenced in early 1961, with a few more produced. As for value, which I always get in trouble about, is very much dependent on condition - go with whatever you feel comfortable with. The good ones (of which there are few) are worth it, they are a car to enjoy, rather than treat as an investment.

    Happy to stand corrected Simon and thanks for that. I didn't realise some were imported. Sounds like hundreds were sold rather than thousands then. Lovely cars.

    I haven't seen one in the flesh for years except for Musters and one French Car Day in Perth, perhaps 6 years ago. Obviously they are out there! I wonder how many are left....

    How on earth do you prioritise that lot Peter? Perhaps you need a scoring system in a table to rank them. If you try to do them all at once, well, how many years do you have?? Perhaps in order of driving pleasure when finished? Or sentiment? Good luck with it, that's for sure!

    I've been told by the managing director that the xy is first but i'm hoping to have the R10 ready for next easter as it's the closest that the 4cv muster will get to me so i'm apealing special circumstances then the landy and the R8 are long term projects , Although saying that the xy has been 21 years

    I'd say your timing speaks for itself regarding prioritisation of the xy!! Be really good to see you in Inverell.

    Peter J even if one of the Renaults isn't done in time for Inverell come anyway seeing all the others might inspire you to get them finished. Bring the Managing Director to show (her) what your aiming for.
