ASK TO SEE THE DEMONSTRATION VIDEO & OVER 80 PICS ! ! ! ! Ever wanted to own a proper vintage vehicle, not a 1960,s Morris Minor that claims to be vintage, but a proper pre-war automobile built within the first 25 years of the motor cars mass production, a real museum / collectors lot ? Been put off because of high purchase prices for restored examples and you don’t have the time to complete a load of work? Would like an open top tourer but they are just stupid money? Can’t take the family / dogs along in most models? Well take a look at this one ……………… This unique model pre war survivor is in great usable condition its ready to be enjoyed, all working as intended, fully restored some years ago and just been completely rewired, absolutely everything works as intended, need’s nothing but using. Can seat up to 6 adults with room to spare for a picnic hamper, pram, parasols and a couple of dogs as well. Fold back the roof on sunny days or flip it back over for shade, the back door folds down to make a picnic table and the rear seats unclip to be used outside or to clear the way for a huge load space. A truly adaptable and practical machine. 1926 Renault “OS” with a 2100cc four cylinder petrol engine and three speed gearbox, electric start so no cranking, it runs really well with no smoke when pushed hard. The brakes are very good with a very firm handbrake. Now running 12v electrics it’s been completely rewired, all the lights and indicators are working, as is the wiper, plus it benefits from modern push in fuses. Its very well presented and is just as clean underneath as it is on top, its not an immaculate finish, it’s gathered up a few tiny marks and defects over the years. It was restored in 2003 and has spent some time working as a guest shuttle vehicle for hotels in Romania and France before returning to a private collection in the UK. The “OS” model was built as a commercial chassis and running gear, so we have some sturdy built mechanics underneath the “charabanc” (Sharabang) body, there is a collection of original manuals and parts books plus a copy of the workshop manual in English, there are also a few old MOT’s and a few pre-restored pics in the history file. The sticker on the rear door will peel off. We have the full UK log book showing manufactured 1926 with a seating capacity of 6. It is MOT exempt and the road tax is free “Historic”. Please watch our demonstration video to see every aspect including driving and we also have a “picture” video with over 80 still photos, ask for the links. It can be transported long distances on a standard car trailer and I’m told with the hood down and screen folded it will go in a standard garage, but I only have a huge shed so can’t confirm. The last owner changed all the oils in the engine, gearbox and axle. A genuine 95 year old vintage and hugely adaptable automobile, its proposed uses are endless, it could be used for weddings, proms, promotions, advertising, film & TV work, picnics or simply enjoyed by the lucky new owner and their family. Have a little fun with your money, the bank manager is giving you nothing for it sitting in his vault, put this in your garage instead. Will you be its custodian in its fast approaching centenary year ? DELIVERY We can arrange delivery to most UK postcodes, pls check with us for a price to your postcode.
