Châssis n° 195 063

Introduite en 1925, la Renault Type NN était une version légèrement agrandie de la KJ de 1923, type qui avait introduit un certain nombre d'améliorations techniques reprises sur la NN. La plus significative était un nouveau moteur à quatre cylindres de 951 cm3 doté d'une culasse détachable, une première chez Renault. Le châssis embouti en acier était suspendu par des ressorts semi elliptiques à l'avant et par un ressort transversal à l'arrière où le pont était guidé par deux bras longitudinaux. Seules les roues arrière étaient freinées – le frein séparé sur transmission étant conservé - et la boîte était à trois rapports. La NN partageait tous les détails du châssis KJ mais sur un empattement supérieur. Selon le rapport final choisi, la vitesse maximale de la NN se situait entre 45 et 60 km/h.

Cette NN fut achetée par son propriétaire en 1979 et restaurée sur quelques années, la reconstruction étant achevée au début des années 1990. Après cette restauration, la voiture fut conservée dans un garage bien sec, régulièrement entretenue et souvent utilisée. Peinte en bleu avec intérieur noir, elle se présente en excellent état général et en bon état de fonctionnement, accompagnée de sa carte grise française.

Chassis no. 195 063

Introduced in 1925, the Renault Type NN was a slightly larger version of the Type KJ of 1923. The KJ had incorporated a number of technological advances, which were carried over to the NN. Most significant of these was a new 951cc four-cylinder sidevalve engine with detachable cylinder head, the first Renault power unit with this feature. The steel chassis incorporated semi-elliptic front springing and a transverse leaf spring at the rear where the axle was located by a pair of trailing arms. Only the rear wheels were braked, a separate transmission brake being retained, while the gearbox was a three-speeder. The NN shared all the KJ's chassis details but was built on a longer wheelbase. Depending on the final drive ratio specified, the NN's top speed was in the region of 41 to 56km/h.

This NN was purchased by its late owner in 1979 and was restored over a numbers of years, the rebuild being completed around the beginning of the 1990s. After restoration the car was kept in a dry garage, regularly serviced and driven frequently. Finished in blue with black interior, it is presented in generally good condition and running order, and is offered with French Carte Grise.
