Footnotes

  • Founded by Louis Renault and his brothers Marcel and Fernand in 1898, the company that would become France's biggest automobile manufacturer started humbly enough, with a solitary 1¾hp De Dion-engined prototype. By 1904 Renault was building its own engines - large-capacity fours at first, followed by the AX twin - and in 1908 introduced its first six-cylinder model despite Louis Renault's aversion to such complication. Sixes were an established feature of the Renault range by the 1920s, and in 1927 the company introduced an all-new, small-capacity (1½-litre) variant: the Monasix. The most spacious saloon in its class, the Monasix soon became the preferred car of the Parisian taxicab trade. Production continued until 1932, though the green-painted Monasix taxis remained a familiar sight in Paris well into the 1960s.

    This right-hand drive Renault Monasix carries cabriolet coachwork attributed to the little-known coachbuilder Mauguy of Paris. Believed an older restoration, the car is finished in blue with blue/grey cloth interior, and is described by the vendor as in generally good condition. An original handbook is included in the sale.
