JZA931 featured in Renault Australia advertising material as well a feature article in the Age newspaper and Wheels Magazine. The car was 'found' on a farm in East Gippsland, Victoria. Last appeared registered in 1988 and sat idle since. To retore to former glory. More details later....

    Just for info, your quoted chassis number sounds more like the fabrication number on the oval plate. The fabrication number is the sequential manufacturing number of that particular model (in this case an R1152 16TL). The chassis number is located on the diamond shaped plate located adjacent to the oval plate. In your case it will likely commence as follows 95461xx
    1963 Renault R4 Van
    1964 Renault R4
    1967 Volkswagen 1300 Deluxe
    1969 Renault 8 Gordini 1300
    2005 Renaultsport Clio 182 Cup

    g'day youse mob, first post here from boleropilot

    have had many 16s earlier in life but sadly never ended up keeping one - looking for a nice one right now

    one point I would like to mention is to ask if anyone knows anything about a TX (5 speed) that was owned by one of the pilots at Oakey, back in the '70s - if I remember right it was dark metallic blue?

    btw, I used to hillclimb a TS at the now defunct Echo Valley track in Toowoomba - always won my class, fastest time 52.62 seconds

    cheers for now

    Hi there. I'm a new member as I've just scored an R16 from a paddock. It actually seems not to bad in the body and the motor runs. I'll get someone who knows more than me to have a look over it and see if it's roadworthy-able, and perhaps get on club plates.
    Anyway, the details are:
    R1150
    Fab. No: 463230
    Diamond Plate: 1120430
    Barossa Red
    4 Speed Man.
    Status: Recently recovered from paddock. TBA.

    Where do I find the engine number?

    Thanks, Tom

    The engine number is on the block and should be underneath the engine type which is 697-01.


    This was the 1470cc non-crossflow engine that I loved in my 1969 R16. Smooth as silk 40 KW!
    It's another lovely day! Again!

    g'day Tom, nice looking 16, body looks pretty good but upholstery a bit rough...better than t'other way round hey
    looks like we've both got our "barn find' 16s home - and now the fun starts
    pls keep in touch, we can swap contact ideas for parts etc. and maybe some day our 16s will park alongside each other at a Renault event
    it will be interesting to see how the red colour comes up with a cut and polish - hopefully it will look vunderbar...
    cheers

    g'day Alastair - so sad you didn't get a response to your suggestion for a 16 celebration - just goes to show you how rare they are !!!!
    m8, I am a 16 fan, had many of them in my earlier years, hill-climbed one (dirt track in the '70's) and have just bought my barn find on the eve of my retirement (the latter only 5 hours ago)
    the 'muster' idea is one I am keen on and I am happy to get involved in helping to organise that in the near future - hopefully my 16 will be on the road within a month or so
    cheers for now

    Hi BP, I think the paint might be beyond help on mine. It's coming off in flakes in some patches. I assume it's had a bad respray at some stage. I haven't spotted any real rust yet, which has me hopeful. Engine bay and door frames etc all look good. Bit in the bottom of doors and hatch as you'd expect. I haven't been underneath the car for a look though. Will definitely stay in touch as you mentioned.
    Thanks, Tom

    still on/off Rob's trailer for various reasons - waiting for bonnet and front left mudguard to get back from the panelbeaters - the damage you see to the one in this pic is what I did to it taking it off the trailer at home - nearly cried, I did...
    waiting for invoice from o/s for a radiator mount, getting close to final set-up for registration
    bought (not really) a nice 10 recently, will post details and pix elsewhere on the forum

    Hi guys. I am looking to get red of my 16, if anyone is interested. I posted some details and pics of the car in this thread on July 29 2015. Have a look. I have had the car running ... but not for a while. It's not drivable due to brakes being locked on, and water is leaking from radiator. Generally it's a very original car without much rust at all. I stupidly bought some bits and pieces for it including brand new front discs, brake hoses, some service parts and filters. I was getting exciting. It amounted to nothing! Anyway, lovely old car. Hopefully good for a restoration or certainly parts. I'd like to get $300, but I need it gone so best offer wins. The car is in Bonnie Doon, 160km NE of Melbourne. I can be contacted on 0407834234. Thanks, Tom
