    Does anyone know what year the Dauphine Gordini went on sale in Australia?

    So are you going to keep us in suspense about the date?

    Hi David. I purchased a new Gordini in 1962 and I think sales may have commenced in 1961. Gordon

    A footnote in this Wikipedia article on the Dauphine indicates that Renault (Australia) Pty Ltd assembled the Dauphine at Somerton, Victoria in 1961.

    I had a blue/green one in the early 1970's, great car.
    Did a lot of long trips in it.
    Love the way the doors shut, fantastic!

    The reason we are asking is to settle an argument.

    On Sunday we have the Renault Roundup at Caribbean Gardens, This year or next year is 60 years of Gordini in Australia. From what we've learnt is that production started in 1961 but the Dauphine Gordini was on sale through the dealers as a special order from 1960. 3 cars were sold. Bob Watson ownes one of them.

    I say this is the 60th year of G in Australia because you could buy them here in 1960, others say it's next year because production didn't start till 1961.

    The argument continues.

    I spoke to an old bloke just yesterday and he said he used to rally a Dauphine back in the late 50's and early 60's. I have to say I was surprised, he just doesn't seem to be the type. But I guess 60 years ago he was young and perhaps he thinks the same about me now.

    According to the "Renault In Australia" book; The Renault Dauphine Gordini was introduced in June 1960
