    I'm not to sure about picking it up in France. I'm fairly well informed that Ramsgate is in S.E. England, although a ferry to France operates from there. Nice looking vehicle though!

    Just love the car. Still can't get over the "big Dauphine " motor. Only thing it need is a nice set of wheels, even spokes would do. But some simple mags would set it off so well.

    AAahh Well !!! just dream on....

    With a few of you who like this perhaps Fregate restoration will make a come back. Yes an auto. Got to love them just that everything is big and heavy.

    Hi Fregate lovers
    Perhaps now is the time to set up a consortium and you could all get a piece of it. Be very affordable for individuals and the lurve could be shared around.

    C'mon Dave, you just need to fix up the Fregates that you already have.

    I need someone to take my spare windscreens from me.
    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    Yes it certainly looks original and very clean up behind the dash. I suspect it has had some cosmetic repairs though just to keep her maintained.

    It would certainly be a very rare car to find in this condition and for a serious car collector this would be a good buy IMHO

    I must get the details on this, but I have a clear memory of being given a detailed explanation of why the Ventoux engine (4cv/Dauphine/R4 and many other models) is actually a small derivative of what you see in the Fregate. I'd always thought it was the other way around, but not apparently. Regardless, the family resemblance is quite special...

    Lovely car. I have no idea whether Transfluide cars came to Oz.

    Semi-automatic with a torque converter or similar device. Not quite sure how they were set up.
