Here in Montevideo you could see a few of them going around up to the first half of the 2010s.

The new paint job keeps it in fashion ;)

It's pretty rare to see an old European car in two-tone paint. Looks very nice, though.

Today it's not rare and I 'm sure this one was repainted.

Renault's answer to the 2CV, I guess.

Wasn't that the R4?

The 2CV and 4CV came out in the late 1940s, the R4 was introduced in 1961.

Okay that's a good point! So I was chronological wrong, sorry.


But I think it's fair to say, that both Renault cars, the 4CV and the R4 were the main concurrent to the Citroën 2CV and aimed for the same clients. And the R4 followed the same philosophy as the 2CV: Simplicity and lightweight.

I had the same thought. This was a bit sexier than the 2cv. The number of CV concerns power, taxes and insurance in France so this one was double ;)

Quite a large steering wheel. No power assist so you needed the leverage to make a turn.

Not much power steering in the 1950 s but you could feel the road.

A classic Renault :)

That is small. Would just about work as a clown car in a circus.
