    VERY VERY RARE RHD RENAULT CARAVELLE CONVERTIBLE - BEAUTIFUL LOOKING CAR

    This certainly is an unusual one! Caravelles were produced for 10 years, and although over , were produced the survival rate is very low, especially on this side of the Atlantic. All four wheel covers are present, though, and the trim all seems to be there as well.

    Not a bad price either. Maybe a good candidate for an updated and reliable powertrain??? Sooo, that must be a steel hardtop? If you get into it, leave the roof on, strip the interior and add bracing fore to aft inside or underneath.

    My friend basically had both door open, two people sat down and bam. Their butts were on the ground. Suicide doors in the rear and you could insert a crank through the rear bumper to start it. Best done when its already warmed up. Hi Stuart, I had a similar experience with one of these. It too sagged in the middle and he had to have it braced before he could sell it.

    I had a 4CV too as my 1st car. I always wondered how many people put gas in the radiator, as the gas filler was next to the heater box under the hood. A lot of these cars came to the US. Years ago these were almost always available,for cheap. I never took them too seriously. Most have been scrapped,I guess.

    Lowest hp engine, probably around cc, weakest chassis — basically a Dauphine with the roof lopped off — unibody sills very weak, cars fold in half when doors open, can already see rotthru at front of one sill below doorhinge pillar. Good cars and not that rare. I have driven many Renaults and the engines are super reliable and remarkably powerful! The big problem with them in the USA was that the cooling system needed to be bled if drained or overheated and people were not used to that here.

    This lead to the bad reputation from overheating due to air in the cooling system and only a faint idiot light. The best memory I have of a Caravelle called the Floride in the home country I believe was at a time trial that was held on a giant parking lot in the Northeast in very early Spring. It had snowed, then melted a bit. The course was a slushy unplowed mess. The fastest time was set by a good driver in a Caravelle. Everything else I saw connected with Caravelles was downhill from there, unfortunately.

    No surprise this one was used only 10 years in California. I never saw these as a kid. Maybe we were just from the wrong side of the tracks…. The only problem Renault had when they came to the USA in the late s before VW was they didn;t have enough repair facilities. I never knew you had these in the USA! The early model was a Floride but it morphed into the Caravelle. You would really have to know these to understand the differences!!

    In Europe it was a car driven by glamorous women. The streets of Paris were littered with them. Caravelles seemed to start life in the European cities. Then the rust started, they disappeared as a consequence, becoming rare. You can find ones without rust in Southern Europe.

    As they are R8 based, tuning one is easy and very effective, possibly the ultimate period conversion was a tuned R16 TS engine, that became a seriously quick car. Fitting an R21 turbo drivetrain might be todays ultimate sleeper, if it will all fit, especially with 4 wheel drive from the later models.
