A quite unoriginal blue for that 6cyl post-war P3.
Shame about the clumsily reupholstered interior, the dreadful dash (should be black, not bare metal) and the radio.
Not sure about the 15mm copper heater pipes and plumber's tap either!
Seen nicer. Will definitely pass on that one... [-(

The last one of those I sold 27k miles 1987 'plums and custard' took weeks to sell at just £1600 but that was back in June 92.

No I was talking about the 2CV that you posted but the Rover popped in while I was typing. :)

Got a soft spot for 4's. This one is very well sorted out.

There seem to have been quite a few Renault 4's appearing recently. Never had any desire for them when they were new, and the quirky gear stick and looks had had zero appeal.

I do like them now and appreciate their je ne sais quoi, and they would make a nice little runabout EV conversion if only batteries weren't so expensive and bulky and heavy :-D

If you'd prefer to double your model you may have to quadruple your budget so not really proper to this thread but worth a look:

Now here is a true classic well within budget and possibly an ideal base for an electric conversion? :-D
