Franophiles, here’s a 1967 Renault 10 in really nice shape. It can be found on craigslist with an asking price of $4,900 or best offer. That may seem like the absolute top of the market for a car like this, but this one only has 32,000 miles on it and it’s still wearing its original tires! Yeah, you may want to change those.
This car would look fantastic with a little work on the paint, buffing, not repainting. There’s no mention of rust at all and I don’t see any, but there has to be some rust somewhere, doesn’t there? The Renault 10, or R-10, was introduced to the public in the fall of 1965 and production ended in 1971.
I love the look of these cars, sort of a push-me-pull-you design. I guess the car that was one of its main competitors, the VW Beetle, also had a similar which-is-the-front-which-is-the-back look to it. This is a coveted round headlight car, being an early-1967 model. This car “runs and drives good” but needs brake work. I don’t know what that consists of, but hopefully it isn’t anything too major. And, yes, supposedly there are just 32,000 miles on this car and it sure looks like it’s true given it’s superb condition. Supposedly, it’s best to walk away from a rusty R-10 as there are others available, this one doesn’t appear to be one of those rusty cars.
This car looks almost perfect to me, inside and out. The seats are perfect, and who doesn’t love a red interior! All of that French vinyl! And, did I mention that this car “even has the original Michelin “Made in France” tires still on it!” The R-10 was the last of the rear-engine Renaults, being replaced by the Renault 12. Unfortunately, there are no engine photos, which seems strange with the seller being a restoration shop in Warminster, Pennsylvania, but this one should have a 1.1L inline-four with just under 50 hp. Have any of you owned a Renault 10? This sure seems like the nicest one that I’ve seen.
