1963 Renault Caravelle. Convertible with both soft top and removable hard top in pristine condition. The car is rear-engined and uses the engine and floorpan of the Renault Dauphine. The four-cylinder engine displaced 845 cc and produced 40 horsepower. Re-Jane white paint in very good condition sprayed over factory sheet metal. Laser straight lines and gaps. A sharp sloped down grill-less front and front bumper that drops down lower underneath large headlights. She almost appears to be grinning, with a smirk. A very nice design element is the single piece of trim that goes down the entire side of the car from the front of the fender to the rear of the quarter panel, separating the upper from lower. A fast back like styled, almost bubble top large, long sloped rear window. Tight oval elliptical taillights split horizontally in the middle create some elegance. The hood in the rear has long vents that would have provided plenty of cool air sliding down the very aerodynamic rear window. Tall reverse cove concave shapes behind at the rear of the doors. Steel wheels with circular holes and moon style hubcaps. Undercarriage is very clean. The interior included thick cushioned brown Bucket front seats. Steel dash w vinyl dash pad. Brown door panels. Plush deep weave black carpeting. Floor shift manual transmission. New innovation for the car was four-wheel disc brakes, a first for a saloon car of this size. The clutch in the system was replaced by a powder ferromagnetic coupler, developed from a Smiths design. The transmission itself was a three-speed mechanical unit similar to that of the Dauphine, but from the beginning with synchromesh on all gears in this version. Steel wheels with round holes painted white to match the car with baby moon style hubcaps.
