    Default Unusual Custom Body !!!

    I was "surfing" about 3 months ago and came across a picture that really enthralled me.

    Unusual Custom Body !!!-renault-based-sports-usa.jpg

    It was associated with a site called "Forgotten Fiberglass"
    Home: Forgotten Fiberglass - forgottenfiberglass.com

    But have sent 2 emails, with no answer.

    Has anybody on AF seen this car before, and any other pictures, who owns it ??????

    Very Interesting !!!

    From the same site, is this another view of the same car?

    Boot lid looks very VW beetle-ish. Do you have a link to the page?

    The boot lid (engine cover) is from a Renault 4 CV and so are the underpinnings from what can be seen, and I expect this is what has got Ray interested.
    jaahn and JohnW like this.

    Well done "FIVEDOOR", I went back to the site and found nothing.

    Obviously built on a 4CV floor pan, or with parts taken from one, wheels are early RER.

    Would love to have more in depth pictures.

    Will do more searching.
    Thanks,
    Ray

    I found the image in post #2 here - https://www.gluseum.com/US/Tampa/810...vered-Classics

    Those two images are all I have been able to find so far, I will seek some more time permitting.

    I really like how they have incorporated the 4CV rear lid.

    No way is this a beetle, its a 4cv for sure, I'm sure I have seen this car before, cant remember the name given to the vehicle. an early adaptation though.

    There it is the full story. It was supposed to go on Ebay on Wed night (USA) according to Hacker.
    Obviously a 4CV floor pan and then adapted from there.

    Very interesting. There is a link to Devin cars as well.

    Nice one,
