    Default Renault Estafette Van - NewZealand

    Anyone else notice this?

    I'd import it if I had the cash. Lucky I don't have the cash.

    I think you would be a little disappointed. It is not the van in the photo.

    I looked at it last time it was advertised and it is very rusty, been sitting in a earth floor shed with a big hole in the roof for many years.

    Too much for me to tackle, shame though, it would have made a great period service vehicle for the Dauphine rally car, especially repowered with a R12 or R17 motor and gearbox.

    Looks a bit past it.

    Just out of interest, whilst on the subject... how much would a car cost to be shipped to Australia?

    Where the hell would you get parts for the thing?

    David Collier would surely have a supply.

    Seriously Daniel, a lot of the fittings would be ripped off the dauphine. The bodywork would need to be repaired and where necessary someone would have to fabricate panels - that's not impossible. The mechanicals are shared with the dauphine so that wouldn't be such a problem either.

    The downside is that getting that vehicle in the shed looking like the one in the ad would cost a motza.
