Description

This is my once hoped to be project 1959/60 Renault Caravelle. This is a no title vehicle and the last date of registration tags are from 1981.
Other than some minor dents, dings, a crooked bumper, and surface patina the over all body is in pretty good shape.
The floor pan is a different issue. The floor pans are awfully thin and rusted through in many areas. They will definitely need to be replaced in sections or as a whole.
Most of the plastic and upholstery has been vaporized by years of exposure to the California sun.
All of the glass is intact and in pretty good condition along with the tail light and front indicator lenses.
This model has drum brakes on all fours. Front shoes were sticking, so they have been removed and parts retained with vehicle.
Powered by the 845cc Gordini motor. I had this motor up and running in 2010, and I was able to drive the car around a little. Motor still seems in decent condition. I did not perform any leak-down or compression test.
Transmission shifts through all gears, but it is pretty sloppy.
This is definitely a long term project vehicle, but I think it is in an ok starting positionnot ideal, but ok.
If more pictures are requested, I will need a few days as the vehicle is stored in an offsite location.
Sold as-is no warranty.
Buyer will pay for and arrange all shipping.
