    A big welcome to Aussiefrogs! It is always good to have overseas Froggers.

    The Colorale model was sold in Australia, although in small numbers. I don't know of any that are running but there are definitely a few out there! We found one in Inverell, in New South Wales last Easter at our Renault 4CV Muster.

    I expect a few others will see your post and reply.

    Best wishes

    Your English is fine. My French is none existant therefore I should be the one to apologise to you. So you have nothing to be sorry about.

    Welcome Fred. There are 3 of these cars in Australia that I know of though none are current road registered. One has been carved up to use as a hotrod but I fear the worst for it. There is another in Armidale NSW that would be a good prospect for a complete restoration.

    I have great hope for the car shown above having recently spoken with the new owner.

    I’ve seen more than three pop up over the years (mostly the later OHV engine, than the 85), and there is a Pick-Up still around somewhere. But I do wonder what has happened to the R2093 I looked at for someone many years ago.

    Never heard of a Renault Colorale before, but that name plus the word 'Prairie' gives me the eerie feeling that this fine robust, roomy and high vehicle could unintentionally represent the potential germ of the now ubiquitous Sports Utility Vehicle. I can definitely detect a resemblance. Could be a Koleos with rounded corners. Or any other similar vehicle.
