eBay watch: 1958 Renault Dauphine car in original condition


At first glance, you might think this is one of the retro Nissan reissues like the Figaro or the Pao, but this is far older and out of France – the Renault Dauphine.

It dates back to 1958 and literally screams the era, not least because it looks largely unchanged since first hitting the road. It might well have been thrown back in time. Its amazing looks are perhaps down to it being dry stored in France for the last 30 years. Not just about the  looks either, with the floor and chassis in 'excellent condition' and the 947c engine in 'perfect mechanical order'. Apparently 'everything works', according to the seller.

Things to note are it being left-hand drive, a tear being present on the driver's seat and a need for a 'very light respray' due to some blemishes on the bodywork. Not bad for 53 years. There is interest in it, but the price right now is still only £1,414.95. See the dashboard over the page or see the listing for a pile of images and more details.
