    I don't think I've seen this one before. Bit different. They're calling it a Floride S.

    This one has been around the block a few times. It started off in Sydney back near 30 years ago as it appears now with the Ford mirrors, graphics and paint. Then was bought by someone in SA, passed in at the only Shannons auction held in SA, which must be 20 years ago, and I hadn't seen it since then. Floride S = R1131 956cc Caravelle with both a soft top and a (Floride shape) hard top.

    I wonder just how big a hard drive would be required to store the Renault files from your head Simon? Come to think of it, I'd hate to think how big it would need to be to store all the files in your head
    cheers,

    I was close, but no banana. Now I know why I'm doing what I'm doing :-)

    Anyways, I dug out the pics, and there were no graphics on the sides circa 30 years ago (top pic) when in Sydvegas. They made an appearance when in RAdelaide, circa 20 years ago (middle pic), along with the nice collection of badges. Then I recalled I had seen it more recently, it was advertised by Collectible Clunkers when they were on South Road, in 2005 (bottom pic).

    That's the car I remember seeing in Unique when it was for sale in Adelaide.
    Could the Shannon's Floride possibly be a different car and one above still be sitting around somewhere?

    Double wow. It would have been easier to find one and pay top dollar in Oz and import it. I just marvel at the amount of work these UK guys will do with rust.

    Great website. I'll contact Richard and tell him so!

    Cheers

    Many thanks for thinking to post that link. What a superb (and HUGE) job!! Many of us would just give up at the sight of that rust, speaking for myself I guess. Dauphines are getting pretty rare over here, relative to 4CVs that is.

    Cheers
